Deleting files by accident is extremely easy to do. It’s a sickening feeling when we realize what we have done. If we can’t find a file on our computer or we accidently modified or deleted a file. We can restore it from a backup (if we are using Windows backup) or we can try to restore it from a “Previous Version”. Previous versions are copies of files and folders that Windows automatically saves as part of a restore point. Previous versions are sometimes referred to as “Shadow Copies”.
Restoring Files From A Backup
To restore a file from a backup, make sure the media or drive that our backup is saved on is available, and then follow these steps:-
Step: 1- Open Backup and Restore by clicking the “Start” button.
Step: 2- Clicking “Control Panel”, clicking “System and Maintenance”, and then clicking “Backup and Restore”.
Step: 3- Click “Restore my files”, and then follow the steps in the wizard.
Restoring Files From Previous Versions
We can restore deleted files and folders or restore a file or folder to a previous state.
To Restore A Deleted File Or Folder
Step: 1- Open computer by clicking the “Start” button and then clicking “Computer”.
Step: 2- Navigate to the folder that used to contain the file or folder, right-click it, and then click “Restore Previous Versions”. If the folder was at the top level of a drive, for example, C:-, right- click the drive, and then click “Restore Previous Versions”.
Step: 3- We will see a list of available previous versions of the file or folder. The list will include files saved on a backup (if we are using Windows Backup to back up our files) as well as restore points; if both types are available.
Step: 4- Double-click a previous version of the folder that contains the file or folder we want to restore. (For example, if a file was deleted today, choose a version of the folder from yesterday, which should contain the file).
Step: 5- Drag the file or folder that we want to restore to another location, such as our desktop or another folder.
Step: 6- The version of the file or folder is saved to the location that we selected.
