    How to recover permanently deleted file?


    How to recover permanently deleted file?

    Windows 10 Home 64b. 22H2
    A 3d party App Shadow Defender is used.
    HDD: LiteOn CV1 88128 128GB
    USB flash drive: Imasion USB flash drive 2.0 2GB


    What happened:
    Five days ago, I downloaded an email from Yandex Mail and stored it on the USB flash drive (Imasion USB flash drive 2.0 2GB
    ) and closed that account. Three days ago, I exited all shadow modes and cleaned & deleted many of the old files from D drive and USB flash drive and updated my Windows 10 and ran an antivirus & Tspyware scan. Today, I wanted to use that downloaded email but found it had been deleted permanently.

    Help, Please?
    1. Can Windows 10 Home recover it?
    2. Any software can do the recovery?

    Thank you!

    If you accidentally delete a file and empty the Recycle Bin, you have a great chance of recovering a file. However,
    As soon as you Updated Windows 10 it, write any files to the disk, you probably over wrote the area of the drive that file resided on. Making it impossible to recover it.
    Same with a Flash Drive if you Formatted it, but didn't write anything on it, then you have a 50 50% chance of recovering the file with several Data Recovery apps.
    Microsoft has a tool that is a Command Line app https://apps.microsoft.com/store/det...y/9N26S50LN705
    All other data recover apps are free to download, scan and view files it finds. You will need another drive to save the files to. If you want to restore the files, you need to pay for the software. Easeus, Aomei, DiskGenius (in my signature)
    I have had the best luck with GetDataBack
    If the files are critical, you can send the drive to the very, very expensive Data Recovery Centers.

    WinfrGUI is a free program for Windows 11 and 10 that helps recover deleted files from your PCs.

    Mr. Spunk.

    Thank you. If Disk Genius recovers all the files that have been deleted from my USB flash stick, there might be many thousands files, do they show the file names or the type of files or language or any indications to of the files? Or do I have to check every files to find the file I want to recover?

    Thank you.

    Quick scan can recover files with directory structure and file name under NTFS file system; deep scan can recover more files with lost directory structure and file name.
