    How to recover important folders?


    Hello every one,
    i need some help regarding the issue i am facing from last night.
    I was working in a folder, from some days and used to save dox, pdf, jpg, png files in that. The next morning i sat on my computer and suddenly i saw the folder doesn't exist on the desktop. God knows i have deleted it accidentally or where ever it gone, dont know.
    However i googled folder recovery; i gone through hidden files procedure, and data recovery software e.g mini tool and steller data recovery. but havent seen the folder name..
    please suggest me a suitable method . thanks

    Hi I assume you don't have a backup otherwise you wouldn't be asking.

    Sometimes it's possible to drag something into another folder... that's perhaps being optimistic.

    You could try installing a fast search tool such as Locate32, or the popular but (in my experience) uses more resources in the background, Everything by voidtools.

    Let that index everything on all drives, then search for any file name you can remember from that folder.

    As you've already used data recovery tools, there's nothing else to suggest that I can think of.

    I have had good luck with a recovery program/app called Recuva.

    If you had a Macrium Reflect backup, you could mount the partition containing the data as a virtual drive and copy the missing folder.

    Another extra fast search program is UltraSearch (freeware). Install, right click on a drive/folder > search with UltraSearch > type in the name of a known file (you can do partial naming search with wildcards ... *doc* will find any file name with the letters "doc" in it.

    This will help you know if it's still somewhere on your computer (accidentally moved?)
