Just sharing this.
I made another boo-boo today and deleted 500GB worth of media files (just movies and music). Don't ask me how because that's something nobody wants to do.
I don't keep a backup of these files. For me these are disposable files. But it would be nice if there's a way to get them back easily. And luckily, there is.
This is the 3rd time this software has saved me. The MiniTool Power Data recovery. The first one was accidental deletion of an entire partition. The second time was also accidental deletion of big files. Accidental=stupidity for me. But hey, things happen whether you like it or not.
Today I am not recovering a partition but rather "undeleting the 500GB+ of files"..
It will take probably a few hours before this process gets done.
So, to avoid stressing out the hard drive (Seagate 2TB external drive) due to heat, I placed 4 USB fans around it.
To those who are accidentally wiping out their hard drives while testing out Win 10 TP, there is a simple solution and I highly recommend this software. The good thing about this recovery software unlike other software, you can get your files back in the same organized manner you lost them with original filenames and folder tree intact. And the best thing is, I got this software FREE from a Giveaway!
