If Photos Saved On Computer Have Been Permanently Deleted, Can They Be Retrieved?
When using computers, we all may meet the situation that some files or folders must be deleted because of insufficient storage space. And some people like to use the "Shift + Delete" key to delete. In such a situation, photos will be "permanently" deleted and can not be retrieved, which will bring trouble to users who want to find them back.
"A friend of mine came to my house a few days ago and wanted to use my computer temporarily. But she found the storage space was not enough when using my computer. I was on an important phone call at that time, so I told her to clean up some memory. The next day, I found that she permanently deleted the folder on the D disk that I put my parents' photos in by accident. I really felt very depressed."
Have you ever meet things like this?And how can you restore your permanently deleted photos? Don't worry. Here are two solutions for you.
Solution 1: Restore your photos from earlier versions of the system.
This is a way to restore deleted files or folders through the system built-in function. As long as you remember the names of deleted files or folders, you can retrieve them through the "previous version". The specific operation steps are as follows.
1. First create a new file or folder on the desktop, then use the name of the deleted file or folder.
2. Right-click on your new file or folder and select "Restore the previous version". Then the system will search and list all previous versions of the file or folder with that name and their related dates.
3. Then you just need to select the latest one and click Restore to restore the files or folders you deleted.
However, if your system does not support this function, you will not be able to restore your photos by this way.
But you still needn’t worry, the next solution will surely meet your needs.

The scanning process takes a certain amount of time. The length of time is determined by the files stored on your D disk. The more complex file type and the larger file size will take the longer scanning time, and vice versa. This is as shown in Figure 5.
Normally, if your disk has about 100M files in jpg format, it takes only a few seconds to complete the whole scanning. Please be patient.
