Windows 7: How to recover deleted files on your computer.

Whenever you write a file on your hard disk a certain amount of space is being consumed. This space consists of hard disk sectors. As long as you don’t overwrite those sectors with new data your files can be restore by using Data Recovery software. There are many programs out there which are designed to do just that.

What not to do when you realize that you`ve accidentally deleted your files.
- Do not perform a System Restore.
- Do not copy or paste anything.
- Do not perform any operations which requires the extensive use of your hard-disk.
- If Possible: If Windows is on your hard-disk remove it and use another computer/laptop to recover the files. You can connect it either internally or externally via eSATA, USB, or FireWire.
