My OGG Audio File Is Missing. How Can I Retrieve It?
OGG is an audio compression format similar to music formats such as MP3. It supports multi-channel, and this file format can continuously improve the size and sound quality. And it is completely free and open without patent restrictions. So what happens when the audio of this file format is lost?
"I have recently encountered a problem that is very troublesome for me. There is a very important audio file on the D drive of my office computer. It is in OGG format. But when I need it in these two days, I find it seems to be intentionally deleted. I can't find it. So I want to know if there is any way to recover it?"

Retrieve your lost audio by UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free
This is an all-in-one free data recovery software for different loss situations. With UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free, you can perfectly recover your lost OGG audio files in three easy steps.
Let UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free show you how it will step by step to retrieve lost audio files for you. Then you won't be troubled anymore.
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 will appear in front of you.
There are two lines of icons on the interface for you to select, which represents files of different formats. You need to restore the audio files, then please check the first 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. At this time, you can click the “Next” button on the right, as shown below.
Step 2: Select the location where the audio file was originally located.
At this point, you will enter the disk selection interface. All you need to do is to select the disk where the lost data was originally located.
Your OGG audio file was originally stored on the D drive. Please select your D drive. After you select the disk name, the right end of the line will show a small circle with a check mark. At this time, you can click the "Scan" button on the top right to scan your D drive, as shown below.
File retrieval: Scan your disk
The scanning process takes a certain amount of time. The length of time is determined by the data stored on the scanned disk. The more stored data will take the longer scanning time, as shown below.
Normally, if you have a file with a music format of about 200MB on your D drive, you only need a few seconds to complete the scan. Please wait patiently.
UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free has two scanning methods to choose from, one of which is the fast scan that is currently in progress. The advantage is that the scanning speed is fast, which can save you a lot of time, but may not scan deep files.
But don't worry, if the quick scan can't retrieve the lost audio file for you, there is another deep scan to help you solve the problem, but it will take a little longer. And the deep scan will be explained in the next step.
In general, in order to ensure the efficiency of file recovery, it is still recommended to perform a quick scan and then a deep scan when scanning lost files.
Step 3: Select your lost audio for recovery
Once the scan is completed, you can browse through all the files stored on your D drive through the left side of the interface.
You will need to browse all the files on the scanned disk, find your lost OGG audio and select it. Then click the "Recover" button in the upper right corner, as shown below.
If you don't find the missing audio file by quick scan, you don't need to worry about it. Please click the “Deep Scan” button on the upper part of the interface, and UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free will scan for you in a moment. Please wait patiently again, as shown below.
Once the deep scan is completed, find your lost audio file from the result list, select and click the "Recover" button. And your OGG audio will be restored in good condition, as shown below.
In order to ensure that the original data is not corrupted, the storage path is not recommended to be set to the original storage location and can be set to your other computer disk.
The above is the specific steps for you. Regardless of whether you have learned about data recovery software before, and whether you are familiar with the operation of the computer, just follow these three simple and clear steps and follow the interface instructions you will recover your audio in the shortest possible time.
"When I searched on the Internet and tried various recovery methods, I found that the UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free was the most practical. Not only did it quickly restore my audio, but also its sound quality and format are exactly the same as before."
