Ever deleted files from the Seagate Barracuda HDD by mistake?

If you have encountered this situation then how to retrieve deleted files is a primary question that arises in your mind. Do not worry!!! Here is the best solution to get back erased files from your Seagate Barracuda HDD i.e. File Recovery Software. It can restore accidentally erased files and folders from the different types of HDDs such as SATA, SCSI and IDE. It can also restore files emptied from the Recycle Bin. It also has the ability to perform Recycle Bin recovery on Windows 7 and all other different files on latest versions of Windows.

This software can retrieve erased files only if they have not overwritten by new files. Overwriting a file means storing the new files over already stored files, which generally results in permanent loss of old files. Therefore, you should avoid using the hard drive after accidental deletion of data. Have a look on common data loss scenarios, before using the software.

Common Scenarios are as follows:

Deleted the data using Shift+Del keys: You might have accidentally erased data using Shift+Del keys. When you delete data using Shift+Del keys, the files do not get stored in the Recycle Bin instead, the files bypass the Recycle Bin. Therefore, you cannot find files erased using Shift+Del keys resulting in a loss of data

Accidentally erased the files from Recycle Bin: You might have accidentally deleted the wrong folder from the Recycle Bin instead of deleting other unwanted folder. When you delete a file or a folder from the Recycle Bin then the file is permanently removed from it. Therefore, you cannot restore the data deleted from Recycle Bin using any file Management option.

Deleted the wrong files using Windows Command Prompt: If you have accidentally deleted the wrong file using Windows Command Prompt then you may end up in a loss of data. For instance, you might have deleted the file using “del abc.doc” command instead of deleting another file called abcc.doc.

Emptied the Recycle Bin by mistake: You might have emptied the Recycle Bin before restoring some of the important data from it. When you empty the Recycle Bin, all files and folders that were moved to the Recycle Bin get deleted resulting in data loss.

Precautions to avoid permanent deletion of files

  • Stop the usage of hard drive to avoid overwriting thereby avoid permanent deletion of data
  • Avoid installing the file recovery tool on the same hard drive from where the files have been accidentally erased
  • Do not save recovered data on the same affected hard drive
