Important tip: Do not store the file on the C drive!

Why should the files in the computer not be stored on the C drive?

1. The C drive in your computer is used as the system disk. When the computer runs various tasks, you need to leave some space for the use of the page file. If you store a large number of files on the C drive, it may take up too much space. And the speed is slowed down.

2. Your computer system may be damaged due to various reasons. If you reinstall the system after the damage, the files stored on the C drive will be deleted.

3. If you store other files on the C drive, it will be inconvenient to manage. When you need to delete these files, you may accidentally delete the system files of the C drive and cause the entire computer system to crash.

So please try not to store some important files to the computer C drive.

Then, if there is a loss of the C drive file caused by the computer virus, what method should we use to retrieve it? Please continue to read and we will tell you the best solution.

Recover your folders using the UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free

UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free is an all-in-one free data recovery software for different loss situations. With just three simple steps, you can quickly recover a large number of files lost due to hard disk infection.

Then let's take a look at how UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free can retrieve all kinds of important folders lost in the hard disk through the detailed steps below to help you solve the problem.

Step 1: Enter the software to choose the format of the lost data

First of all, please open the UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free. The format selection interface of the data appears in front of you.

There are two lines in the interface that represent the file format icons. Please distinguish them carefully. In this case, you need to select the data format corresponding to the contents of each folder you lost. Please select the icon corresponding to the contents of each folder in turn.

When the check is done, a small circle with a check mark will appear in the lower right corner of the icon. At this time, you can click the “Next” button on the right, as shown below.

Step 2: Select the disk where each folder is originally located.

In this screen, all the disks in your computer are listed. All you need to do is to select the disk where you deleted the original folder.

The folder is originally stored on your C drive, then select your C drive. After selection, a small circle with a check mark will appear on the right side of the name line. This time you can click the Scan button on the top right to scan your C drive, as shown below.

File retrieval: scan the disk

The scanning process takes a certain amount of time. The length of time is determined by the files stored on your C drive. The more complex file type and the larger file size will take the longer scanning time, and vice versa, as shown below.

Under normal circumstances, if in your disk memory there are 2 GB files of various formats, the whole process of disk scanning may last for a few minutes, please wait patiently.

Step 4: Select your lost folder for recovery

After the scan is completed, you can browse all the files on your C drive through the left side of the interface.

At this point you need traverse the folder tree, then find your lost folder and select it. Then click the "Recover" button in the upper right corner, as shown below.

UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free gives you two ways to scan, one is the fast scan that has just been completed. The advantage of this scan is that it is fast, but some deep files may not be scanned.

If you don't find the important folder you lost, you don't have to worry about it. There is also a deep scan to help you solve the problem of not being able to retrieve the file, but it takes a little longer.

At this time, please find the yellow "Deep Scan" button on the upper of the interface and click. At this time, UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free will scan the files on the disk more deeply for you. Please wait patiently, as shown below.

Once the deep scan is completed, find the folder you lost to select it and click the "Recover" button. And your folder will be back to you, as shown below. (For files of complex types, it is recommended that you perform a fast scan before performing a deep scan for best effect.)

Tip: In order to prevent data from being permanently damaged or lost due to overwriting, it is generally not recommended to set the recovery path to the disk where the recovered data was originally located. For example, if you want to restore the files to your desktop, the recovery path should not be set to C.

The above is the steps to find back the disk folder that you lost because of virus infection. It is so easy to complete the whole process. Even if you are a beginner and you have not used the data recovery software before, you can also easily retrieve your folder by quickly operating UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free with the interface prompt.

"Thanks a lot! After using UnCutData Recovery for just a few minutes, my documents, photos and video folders are back, and I checked the contents of them and everything is back! It is really great! And the tip in the passage that do not save the file to the C drive also do me a favor. I will put the file on another disk."
