Before proceeding, we have a very useful tip for you in case you mistakenly delete some data on your PC. You should always stop using the device immediately you mistakenly delete something as it will keep your deleted data safe.

If you continue to use the device, it might create new data files and your previous data might get lost. So always remember this.

2) With Free inbuilt Backup feature

If you have cleared the recycle bin, then there is an alternative. Windows have the inbuilt backup or restore highlight with which you can retrieve your data easily. The steps of restoration differ with each Window version:
