The steps are as follows:

Right-click on the folder that contained the permanently deleted file(s) or folder(s).

Choose 'Restore previous versions. '
From the available versions, choose the one dated when files were there.

Click 'Restore' or drag & drop the desired version at any location on the system.

Xixtie,
Try one of the options below and you will recover your lost files.

Type Restore files in the search box on the taskbar,
and then select Restore your files with File History.
Look for the file you need, then use the arrows to see all its versions.
When you find the version you want, select Restore to save it in its original location.
To save it in a different place, press and hold (or right-click) Restore, select Restore to, and then choose a new location.


If you don’t have any backups and your file is not in the trash, you might want to try one of the many file recovery programs out there, either a free one or a commercial app like Piriform Recuva , or Stellar Data Recover.

Another option is Disk Drill,
a recovery tool originally designed for Mac computers and now available for Windows.
It offers help with partition loss, hard drive reformatting, failed boot-ups, accidental deletions, and more.

Another possibility to consider: Have you emailed the file to anyone?
Have you saved a copy on a cloud-based service like DropBox*, iCloud*, or SkyDrive*?
If so, you might be able to grab a copy from there.
Again, even if you lose the most recent changes, it is better than nothing.

We hope this helps.
All the very best as you recover back your lost files.

We Rise!

A software like Recuva should help you.
Download Recuva and see if it works.

U must need to use the hard drive as external hard drive for you to recover the deleted

Avoid using your computer or restarting it multiple times to prevent the overwriting of data.

Take it easy! Accidental deletion is one of the common situations of data loss. Your deleted files are just marked as inaccessible data on your laptop before new data overwrites them. It will be a no big deal to recover deleted files from a laptop if you stop using your laptop immediately and use a proper laptop data recovery program.
Try the powerful and professional Recoverit Data Recovery software to restore all lost data. The file recovery program can deep scan your laptop recycle bin folder to searching your permanently deleted files.

BAD company with yahoo boys impacted on you. Why Shift+Del on your personal laptop?



There's a way to get it back. There's a reset function ( PC RECOVERY ) that restores previous document as against previous dates if certain functions were in place on your laptop.

It's something that won't take much time. Find an engineer.

If you have the needed patience and able to follow technical instructions, you will do well with free software

You will have to a recovery and that will require you sorting the files yourselves. Because all be restored in Fat32 storage. Easeus Data recovery should do the magic. Get the Software installed and follow the screen prompt to do the rest.

I don't think I have ever used "Shift + Delete" in my life, I prefer to send everything to the recycle bin then empty it when I'm absolutely sure I do not need the files...

I don't envy your current situation and I wish you luck in your quest to recover your files smiley

Optionally use system restore option.
