We often come across this problem when we have lost a very important data due to a virus or deleted some files accidentally.let’s see how to recover that data like a professional.

TestDisk is another recovery tool to recover whole partitions. photorec is bundled together with testdisk.in order to recover some important files we will concentrate on photorec for windows.
Extract the zip file and open photorec_win.exe in testdisk folder.
Before running this program,make sure that your pen drive or storage device is connected.
Use up/down arrow keys and select your storage media ,from which you are trying to recover deleted data.while performing this step you have to be careful as you may end up recovering from a different partition and may waste a lot of time for recovery of the files that you wouldn’t want.
