Option 3: Recover your folder using the UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free

UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free is an all-in-one free data recovery software for different loss situations. With three simple steps, you can quickly recover the accidentally lost folder on the disk with its help.

Let's take a look at how UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free solves your problem by retrieving important office folders for you through the following steps.

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 read them carefully. In this case, you need to select the data format corresponding to the contents of each folder you deleted, because there are various types of files in the folder. Please check the first icon from the left of the first line which represents the files in all formats.

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 the 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.

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

Search process: Scan the disk

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

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

Step 3: Select the missing folder to recover

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

At this point you need to traverse the folder tree. Then find your lost folder and select it, 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 the effect of finding deep files may not be particularly good.

In this case, if you don't find your lost folder,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, select it and click the "Recover" button. And your folder will be back, as shown below. For folders with complex file types, it is recommended that you perform a quick scan before performing a deep scan for best effects.

The above is the specific steps to recover your lost folder. The entire process does not require any complex computer operation. Even if you are a beginner of the computer and have not used any data recovery software, you can easily recover files and quickly retrieve your important folders.

"UnCutData Recovery's recovery effect is really amazing. I used to use some other data recovery software, but the file types that are often restored are very limited, let alone the folders containing various format files. I will keep this software in case that I need it later.”

Under the true comments of Ms. Linda, here is the genuine software link of UnCutData recovery. If you need such a data recovery software, please click to download. And the free trial version can restore 200MB data for you.
