Frequently asked questions
How to recover deleted files from the recycle bin after it’s emptied?

Typically, when you delete a file you are only getting rid of a marker that tells the system where the file is located, which prevents other data from overwriting that file’s disk space. Until the system overwrites the disk space where your “deleted” file was stored, you have a chance to recover it – even after the Trash or Recycle Bin has been emptied. But you’ll need a file recovery program (a.k.a. an undelete tool) to retrieve it.

Acronis Revive makes it easy by searching your computer’s drive to find the disk space where the lost file is located and examining the file to see if it is intact and available for recovery. If it can be restored, Acronis Revive makes it simple, walking you through the process.

How to recover deleted files from a USB stick or an SD card?

Files stored on a USB flash drive, SD card, external SSD, or any other kind of solid-state storage can usually be restored using a data recovery program, provided the disk space was not overwritten by new information. (One notable exception: Internal SSDs instantly delete files based on the TRIM optimization protocol.)

You will need to use an undelete tool like Acronis Revive to recover a deleted file from a USB thumb drive or SD card. Simply plug the USB stick into your computer or insert the card into an attached reader and follow the step-by-step instructions.

Will System Restore in Windows 10 recover deleted files?

System Restore might help. That utility automatically creates a restore point of your system settings each week, so a copy of the lost file might be available if the original was on the system when the last restore point was generated. You will need to know the file’s name, however, because you have to manually look for it (there is no search function in System Restore).

Find the folder where the file was saved and right-click on it. Choose “Properties” from the menu, look for a version of the lost file under the tab called “Previous Versions”.

If you can’t find the file there, you will need to use a file recovery program like Acronis Revive.

How can I avoid losing files in the future?

Accidents happen to everyone, which is why the best approach to avoid losing a file is to regularly back up your data. Regular backups mean you have a copy of any file that could be accidentally deleted – from photos to system files.

The best approach is to keep three copies of your data – the original and two copies. One copy should be stored on a local external hard drive for quick retrieval. The other should be an off-site copy, such as in cloud storage, so you have a secure off-site copy if a fire or flood destroys your original file and the local backup.
