  • Open the “Recycle Bin” icon.
  • Find the deleted file in the folder.

  • Press the “Windows” key and type “cmd” on the search box.
  • Write the command “chkdsk P: /f” and tap on the “Enter” button from the keyboard. (“P” is a letter on your hard drive.)
  • Type “ATTRIB -H -R -S /S /D P:*.*” and press “Enter“. (“P” is a letter on your hard drive.)

If you already take a backup of important data, you can easily restore it if any accident happens. For storing the data, you can copy the data to an external hard drive, CD/DVD or USB Flash Drive. Here are some tips for restoring the data through backup:

  • Connect the external storage device to your laptop or PC using a USB.
  • Go to “Start” and search for “Control Panel”.
  • Find the “System and Security” and click on the “Backup your computer”.
  • Click on “Set up Backup” and tap on “Yes” for making changes to the PC.
