How to restore the important compressed folder you accidentally deleted?

When you prepare to send a lot of files, there are some network limitations. If the size of these files exceeds the limits, they can not be sent. The solution to this problem is to compress these files to reduce the size of the files before sending them. Sometimes for convenience we put these files into a compressed folder to send.

"My friend asked me to send him the pictures we took on our trip a few days ago. But there were too many pictures. So I packed them up and put them on the D drive to send to my friends. But I unintentionally deleted them. It's really frustrating. Is there any way to retrieve my package file?"

Tips:Generally speaking, compressed files have two formats, Zip and RAR. There are several differences between them..

1. The compression speed of RAR format is low and its compression rate is high. The compression speed of Zip format is high and its compression rate is low.

2. Zip is an old compressed file format which supports many formats. RAR is a popular compressed file format which also supports many formats.

3. Zip can only be compressed into Zip format, not RAR format. RAR not only has its own format, but also can be compressed into Zip format and decompressed into Zip format.

Have you ever meet a frustrating accident like the instance above? Next, I'll show you how to restore the compressed folder you accidentally deleted. (If you don't use the Delete + Shift key to delete, you can find it directly in the recycle bin.).

Solution 1: Recover your package file through previous version of the system.

This method can restore your package files through the built-in functions of your system. As long as you remember the name of the miserably deleted package file, you can retrieve it through the "previous version". Let's take a look at its specific steps.

1. First, please create a new package, and then name it after the name of the wrongly deleted package.

2. Then please open your file manager.

3. Then find your new package file in it, right-click on repeated package name. Select "Restore previous version" from the following options. And then you can restore the previous version of the package file found by the system.

However, this method is only applicable to systems with the function of recovering files from previous versions. What if your system unfortunately does not support this function?

The next solution will definitely solve your problems.

Solution 2: Use UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free to recover Your Package File.

UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free is an integrated free data recovery software for different loss situations. Through a few simple steps, it can quickly help you recover the accidentally deleted files.

Now let UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free tell you how to help you find important packages files and solve your problems through the following steps.

Step 1: Open the software to select the file format of lost data.

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

There are two lines of icons representing the file format in the interface. You need to select the file in the package format, which is not listed separately. Then you can check the last icon from the left of the first line to represent the other formats.

After you check, a small circle with a check will appear in the lower right corner of the icon. At this time, you can click the "Next" button on the right,as shown in Figure 4.

Step 2: Select the disk where the package is originally located.

At this time, you can see the interface of selecting the disk. Next, you need to select the disk where the package file you deleted originally belongs.

Compressed files were packaged and stored on D drive, so please choose D drive. After selection, a small circle with a check mark appears at the right end of the disk name row. At this time, you can click the "Scan" button on the top right to scan your D drive,as shown in Figure 5.

Step 3: Scan the disk

Scanning 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 scanning time,as shown in Figure 6.

Normally, if your disk has about 100M jpg files, it only takes a few seconds to complete the whole scan. Please be patient.

Step 4: Select the compressed package you deleted for recovery

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

At this point, you need to browse rank by rank. Then find the package file you deleted and select it. Then click on the "Recovery" button in the upper right corner,as shown in Figure 7.

UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free offers two ways to scan if you can't find your package files. One is quick scan that you just run. The advantage of this way is high speed but some deep files may not be scanned.

But don't worry, deep scan will help you retrieve the deleted package file. But it takes a little longer. At this time, please click the "deep scan" button of yellow font at the top of the interface. The deeper scan will start immediately. Please wait patiently again,as shown in Figure 8.

After the deep scan, find the deleted package file, select and click on the "Recovery" button. Then your package will return intact to you,as shown in the figure below. (It is suggested that when scanning missing files, perform a quick scan first and then a deep scan.)

This is how UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free retrieves the wrongly deleted package file for you. The whole process is clear and easy to understand.
