How To Recover Lost Files From A PC Computer?

Nowadays, most people use PC computers for various tasks in their daily life. Various essential data of daily life are stored in the computer but due to various reasons these essential data can be accidentally deleted or lost.

You may or may have been a victim of such a situation so for your convenience today we will discuss how to recover lost files or data from a PC computer.

Three Ways to Recover Lost Files on a PC Computer


You can recover lost files on your computer by following several simple methods.

First Method:

The first way is that you should try to recover files or data from the file history of your computer system. But to recover files in this way first you need to make sure that you have backed up your deleted files.  You can also immediately click the "Settings," "Update and Security," and "Backup" buttons to confirm this. Here, you must verify that the "Automatic backup my files" option is enabled. Be sure to turn on the 'Automatic backup my files' option while doing this because if it is not turned on you may fail to restore your files.  Recovering files from file history is possible if Automatic Backup My Files is turned on otherwise not.

Second Method:

By using the second method, you can recover lost files on your PC. Only those who have already enabled Windows 10 system recovery can use this method. All the steps you need to follow to restore the computer are: First, open the Start menu by clicking the Windows button on the computer. Next go to 'Control Panel' and from here select System and Security.  Select the current system and click on 'System Protection'. Finally, the system restore option has to be selected. But the 'System Restore' button may not be functional. To make the 'System Recovery' button responsive press the 'Configure Button' on the same window screen. After making the necessary selections, click "Apply" and then "OK" only here the 'System Recovery' button will appear on the screen. Click on it and then follow the on-screen instructions. If you follow all the instructions correctly, hopefully it is possible to recover the lost data or files from the PC.

Third Method:

Now the method that I will tell you is to restore data or files by checking cloud backup. However you must have cloud backup to restore data or files in this method. Currently, Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive cloud storage services are quite popular. These services store users' files and documents on their cloud servers. If you are also a cloud storage user, you can recover your lost files from the storage servers. To retrieve your files first log in to the cloud storage server and simply select the required files from where you uploaded the files earlier and press the "Download" button. Thus lost or deleted files can be easily recovered.

Hope the above instructions are helpful to recover files from your computer. Currently, there are several effective data recovery companies (like this one) where you can take recovery services from these companies for your computer or other devices.
