    Local Account Deleted

    I enabled hidden Administrator account and latter accidentally deleted my local account which caused me some data loss. I only care about videos which were there in downloads folder. Are there any chances of their recovery?

    Depends how much has been written to your OS drive/partition since.. and inevitably there will have been activity.

    You can try Recuva and similar software..
