The Deleted Video Is Not In The Recycle Bin. How To Find It?
When you have a lot of files on your disk and put useful and useless ones together, you will definitely do a disk cleanup thoroughly. However, when cleaning the junk files, you may accidentally clean some useful files, and it is always troublesome to meet such situation.
"Normally, I like to store all kinds of files on the D drive. This brought more and more files on my D drive, so I decided to do a complete cleanup. But I accidentally deleted a folder with video in it. It's strange that it is not in the recycle bin. How can I retrieve it?"
Why are the deleted files not in the recycle bin? It is because that you have not set the deleted files to the recycle bin in your recycle bin. You only need to enter the recycler's property modification interface to reset it, and the deleted files will be in the recycle bin. (Of course, it doesn't work when you accidentally use the Delete+Shift key to delete)
The deleted video is not in the recycle bin. How to retrieve it?Maybe you are going through the article and you are experiencing such troubles. So what can you do to get the video back? Don't worry, let's talk about ways to find deleted videos that are no longer in the Recycle Bin.
Method 1: Recover your video from an earlier version of the system
This is a way to recover deleted files or folders through the built-in functions of your system. As long as you remember the name of the deleted video folder, you can retrieve the folder by "previous version". The following are the specific steps of this method.
First, please create a new folder on the desktop, and then name this folder the name of the deleted video folder.
Then right-click on your newly created blank folder and select "Restore previous version" from the options that appear. Then the system will search for you and list all previous versions of the folder with the name and its related date.
Then, you only need to select the latest one of the dates, click "Restore". You can recover the video folder you accidentally deleted, as shown below.
This method is more effective, but whether you can successfully use this method depends on whether your system supports it. So what if the system does not support this function? Don't worry, let's introduce the second method to ensure that you can recover the video you want to retrieve.
Method 2: Recover your video with UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free
UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free is an all-in-one free data recovery software for different loss situations. It can quickly help you recover videos that you had deleted and can not be found in recycle bin in a few simple steps.
Now let's use the following steps to let UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free show you how it can help you recover the video you can't find in the recycle bin.
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 to represent the icon of the file format. In this case, you need to select the file in the video format. Please read it carefully and check the second icon from the left of the first line.
When the check is done, a small circle with a check mark will appear in the lower right corner of the icon. Then you can click the “Next” button on the right, as shown in Figure 4.
Step 2: Select the disk where the video is originally located.
What is displayed now is the interface for selecting the disk. Next, you need to select the disk where the lost video was originally located.
The video was originally in the D drive, then select the D drive. After the selection, in the right side of the line showing the disk name there will be a small circle with a check mark.
At this time, you can click on the "scan" in the upper right to scan your D drive, as shown in Figure 5.
Step 3: Scan the disk
The scanning process takes a certain amount of time. The length of time is determined by the type and size of the files stored on your D disk. The more complex file type and the larger size will take the longer scanning time, and vice versa, as shown in Figure 6.
Under normal circumstances, if your disk memory has 2GB video format files, then you can complete all scans in two minutes, please be patient.
The UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free provides two ways to scan. One is the fast scan underway. The advantage of this scan is that it is fast, but some deep files may not be scanned.
But don't worry, there is a deep scan to help you solve the problem of not being able to retrieve the file, but it takes a little longer, and the deep scan will be described in the next step.
Step 4: Select your deleted video to recover
After the scan is completed, please browse through all the files on your D drive through the left side of the interface.
Once you've traversed the directory, then find the video you accidentally deleted and select it, then click the "Recover" button in the top right corner, as shown in Figure 7.
If you have not found the video you deleted, please click the “Deep Scan” button on the upper part of the interface. As shown in Figure 8, UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free will scan for you in an instant. Please wait patiently. (It is generally recommended to perform a quick scan and then a deep scan when scanning lost files.)
Once the deep scan is completed, find your lost video, select it and click the "Recover" button. And your video will be back to you, as shown below.
With the clear steps above, you can easily retrieve videos that you can't retrieve in the recycle bin. Even if you don't have any experience with data recovery software or you are not familiar with computer operations, you can get started quickly. UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free is so easy to operate.
