How to recover deleted or corrupted files 2021 (Windows and Android)

Accidentally deleting a file or having corrupted media is something that eventually happens, whether with photos, videos, or documents. Here’s how to recover deleted or corrupted files.

Accidentally deleting a file or having corrupted media is something that eventually happens, whether with photos, videos, or documents. This makes it necessary to use an external tool so that it is possible to recover from the internal storage the content that has been deleted, whether on the HD, partition, or USB stick. There are currently several software options that scan the drive to find content that has been deleted, and you can recover it in a few steps.

Despite the ease, most programs are paid and have a relatively high license purchase price, making the acquisition unfeasible. Fortunately, there is a free option that fulfills the objective of locating the lost files.

Meet the program

Unfortunately, Windows and macOS do not have native tools so that the user can repair partitions on the HD or removable disk and perform the recovery of files that have been deleted. Despite this, it is possible to use some software that scans the storage unit and is capable of recovering deleted media.

In this tutorial we will use Recuva, a program developed by Piriform and which is compatible only with Windows, but which also allows scanning on smartphones, simply by being connected to the PC using a USB cable. The software is paid but has a limited trial version, but it has the function of recovering deleted files.

Right after downloading, install the program. There is no need to activate the product, the free version offers the necessary resources to scan the computer/partition and recover what was accidentally deleted or corrupted.

Recover your files

After installing, you will be able to use the program. It is worth mentioning that the process can take hours depending on the size of the drive that will be scanned, so we advise you to select a specific folder instead of the entire HD, SSD, or USB stick.

1st Step:

Open the program and select which type of file will be recovered. To decrease the processing time, specifically select the type of media you want to recover (photos, audios, documents, videos, compressed files, or emails). If you want a general search, select ‘All files’ and tap on ‘Next’.

2nd Step:

In this step, you must select the directory in which Recuva should search for deleted or corrupted files. The program gives you the possibility to scan in the trash, in folders, on a connected device or in a specific location. To do this, select ‘In a specific location’ and then search for the folder or connected device (HD, SSD, Pendrive, memory card) memory, etc.).

3rd Step:

Select the file to be recovered and tap on the ‘Recover’ button and define in which directory the media will be saved. We recommend that you save it to another drive or folder and make a backup to the cloud.

If the software has not found or recovered what was deleted, it is likely that there is no way to recover it, but it is possible to use deep scanning by enabling ‘deep scan’.

Other options to recover deleted or corrupted files

For those looking for another alternative to recover deleted or corrupted media, 4DDiG can be a good option, being also compatible with several file formats. The main disadvantage is that in order to be able to retrieve the content it is necessary to hire the paid version, but it is an excellent program.
