I Accidentally Deleted A PDF In My Computer. Is There An Easy Way To Restore It?
Documentation is an important vehicle and tool for both work and learning. Through various documents, important contents can be recorded to improve the efficiency of work and learning. When using documents, sometimes you carelessly delete some important documents, which will interfere with a lot of things.
"I am a graduating college student. I am searching for information to complete my graduation project. Yesterday, I bought a high-quality PDF online through some special ways and put it on the D drive. But I accidentally deleted it. It is so terrible for me! Is there a simple and fast way to help me find it?”
Lose a PDF file? Is this what you are worrying about? Don't worry, I'll introduce you to a simple and fast way to help you retrieve your documents entirely. How? Let’s see the following content.
Solution 1: Restore deleted PDF files from earlier versions
Windows provides a file history function that allows you to recover lost files by restoring folders or the entire drive volume(including deleted files) to the available last time or date of files on the drive.
Right-click the folder or disk drive where the PDF was originally located, and then select "Restore previous versions".
Drag and drop the restored previous version to another location in the list.
You can also select "restore". But this will overwrite and replace the raw file.
But if your system does not support this function, or if you do not set and turn on the file history function in advance, you will not be able to restore PDF in this way.
But you don't have to worry about it. The method we will introduce to you next can restore the lost PDF files quickly and perfectly. Let's take a look at it.

Step 2: Select the disk on which your PDF file is originally located
The interface that appears now lists all the disks in your computer. Next, all you need to do is to select the disk where the deleted PDF file originally located.
PDF files were originally placed on your D drive, so select your D drive. After selecting, a small circle with a check mark will 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 4.

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 scanning time, and vice versa. This is shown in Figure 5.
Normally, if your disk has about 2 GB PDF files in memory, the whole process of disk scanning may last about a minute. Please wait patiently.
Step 4: Select your lost PDF file to recover
After the scan, you can browse all the files on your D drive through the left column of the interface.
