I have an old windows xp computer. How to recover the deleted files on it?

XP system is a Windows operating system produced by Microsoft in October 2001. Windows XP is the oldest computer operating system with the longest service time in human history so far. But it has been difficult for it to meet the needs of modern users about touch, mobility and application. It has stopped selling in 2014, but there are still some old Windows XP computers.

"There's an old computer in my family that has been used for almost ten years. It uses Windows XP system. Before I deleted a folder with many forms on the D disk. I want to restore it. But the system and the computer are too old. I don't know if I can get it back."

Of course, the answer is it can be retrieved. If you encounter such a problem, you needn’t worry when you can't retrieve the file data due to the computer aging problem. Here's a way to retrieve the folder you deleted.

Solution 1: Restore your form folder from previous version

1. First, create a blank folder and name it after the name of the deleted folder.

2. Then right-click the folder and select "Restore the previous versions" among the options.

3. Select the folder with the closest date from the list of previous versions and click Restore.

Solution 2: Restore your form by UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free

UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free is an integrated free data recovery software for different loss situations. It can help you quickly restore deleted forms in XP system through a few simple steps.

Now let UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free tell you how it can help you find the deleted form folder by the following steps.

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

First, please open UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free. Then you can see the data format selection interface, which uses guidance wizard to make your operation more convenient.

There are two lines of icons representing file format in the interface. The form is not among the six file formats listed separately. What you need to do now is to check the last icon from the left of the second line which represents other types of files. Please read it carefully.

When the check is completed, a small circle with a check will appear in the lower right corner of the icon. Then you can click the "Next" button on the right, as shown in Figure 3.

Step 2: Select the disk where the form folder was originally located

At this time, you can see the interface of selecting the disk. Next, you need to select the disk where the form folder you deleted was originally located .

The folder was originally stored on D disk, so please choose D disk. After selection, a small circle with a check mark appears at the right end of the row of disk name. At this time, you can click the "Scan" button on the top right to scan your D disk, as shown in Figure 4.

Waiting process: Scan the target disk

To scan the entire disk takes a certain amount of time. The files stored on your D disk determine the length of time to scan the disk. The more complex file type and the larger file size will take the longer scanning time, and vice versa. This is shown in Figure 5.

Generally speaking, if your disk has about 100MB files in xls format, then it only takes a few seconds to complete the whole scan. Please wait patiently.

Step 3: Select the form folder you deleted to restore

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

Now you need to browse rank by rank, then find the previously deleted form folder and select it. Click the "Recovery" button in the upper right corner, as shown in Figure 6.

UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free provides you with two ways to scan, one is the quick scan, which has the advantage of high speed. But some deep files may not be scanned out.

If you don't find the folder you deleted during the scan, you don't need to worry about it. There is also a deep scan that can help you solve the problem of not retrieving files, but the scan time will be slightly longer.

Specifically, please click the "deep scan" button of the yellow font at the top of the interface. UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free will scan in depth for you immediately. Please wait patiently again, as shown in Figure 7.

After the deep scan is completed, find the form folder you deleted. Select and click the "Restore" button, then your folder will be back to you in one piece. This is shown in the figure below. (It is recommended that when scanning the lost files, you first do a quick scan and then a deep scan. .)
