    Possible to access data no longer stored in AppData/Local/Temp?


    A few months ago I downloaded data somewhere and it was stored in C:/Users/mke48/AppData/Local/Temp. However it is no longer there as only files up to a few months ago are listed there. Is there any way at all I can access data stored there prior to a few months ago?

    Very much likely....No.

    Unless you made a backup of the data the chances of it's recovery is very small. A utility that recovers deleted files might work but after several months that is doubtful. I have no experience with such.

    All files of any importance should have at least one backup copy while those of particular importance need 2 or more backup copies. Data recovery after data loss cannot be relied on.
