How to recover lost files on your Windows PC hard drive

Recover lost files Windows PC

I once encountered a situation whereby all the files I stored (mostly software and some important pdf files) on another partition on my PC hard drive were corrupted due to hard disk failure. It is a gruesome experience indeed, but after seeking for a workable solution I was able to retrieve the lost files and get things back to normal using a free data recovery software.

Hard disk failure mostly occurs when the hard drive is getting old, and sometimes when the PC unexpectedly shut down, which may be due to a power failure or the system having a tantrum that the user is unawere of. These mostly result in data loss, partition loss, or system files getting corrupted.

Another factor that can trigger data loss is harmful virus or malware. From opening unsolicited emails to downloading contents that are malware affected on the internet, ones PC can easily get affected. Virus attack is a known factor too, especially the gruesome ones, which can corrupt hundreds of files within a second and cripple the operating system, resulting in a malfunctioning Windows or unbootable Windows.

There are other ways to lost a file on a PC— emptying the recycle bin or unintentionally using the CTRL+DEL key to delete a file can results in data loss as well. If you find yourself in any of these situations, the good news is you can get your files back by using EaseUS Data Recovery.
