Have you accidentally deleted important files from your computer system? Are you looking for ways to retrieve deleted files on Windows 10? To answer these important questions, we have put together a guide on how you can undelete files in Windows 10 to prevent you from having to put up with the stress of lost data.
Before we move on to how to undelete files, let us address a common issue regarding data recovery first – how does undeleting actually work? When you delete a file from your hard drive, it does not get destroyed/deleted from the drive itself but instead it becomes unreferenced i.e. no address/location points to the data anymore. Because of this, the delete files become invisible and appear to be ‘deleted’ from the computer system. This means that the data that you delete is still physically present on the hard drive until it is overwritten by new data.
This is why it is essential that you stop using your computer system, especially saving new data, after you have accidentally deleted files from it to prevent it from overwriting the data. If you have deleted files and wish to recover them, the first thing you need to do is to stop doing anything on the system and then follow the steps that are given below – this will maximize the chances of recovering all your data in its original form.

A recovery partition is a portion of the hard drive that is designated for restoring a system to its default state that it was in before it was shipped. It is most usually a partition that is created by the manufacturer but it can be created by a system administrator, as well. The recovery partition holds the system backup image and the default system settings and information that include your OEM operating system, license, anti-virus software (if any), and drivers for your systems. If your system comes with Windows 10 installed, then the recovery partition will also contain WinRE – the recovery environment for Windows 10 used to restore Windows to a previous working state.
