Where are deleted files in Windows 10?

When you delete a file on Windows 10, it usually goes to the Recycle Bin and you can easily recover it from there: just open the Bin, find the file and right-click Restore. But if the file is larger than the size of the Recycle Bin, or the Bin is full, or you delete the file using Shift+Del, the file passes by the Recycle Bin. If you need to restore it, you will have to use a special data recovery software like ReclaiMe:

  1. Download, install, and run ReclaiMe File Recovery.
  2. Identify the drive in question and click Start.
  3. Wait till the end of scanning.
  4. Use the search function of ReclaiMe – you can type the file name or just use Find all deleted files.
  5. As soon as you find the files you need, check them and copy.
