  • how to recover computer data

    I was cleaning up my laptop a few days ago because i have a lot of files and had to free up some space. Suddenly, I did the most stupid thing i could ever imagined (maybe because of stress and lack of sleep)..... I lost all my documents, i can't remember what I might have clicked, but all my files were gone. I've searched and can't seem to find it, Is there any way I could recover those files? I'm using windows 8 on my laptop. I know it's plain stupidity, it's times like this that i do appreciate to have a data center service that could help me with this problem.

    Turn off the compute (to prevent overwriting the files)
    Remove the drive
    Attach it to another computer with some data recovery software on it
    See what you can recover - but don't have any expectations

    And do some research into BACKUPS!

      Kumusta applecar. Check this out for Free Data Recovery Software. This one seemed ok but will only recover 1GB of file.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2
