How to Recover Files after Reinstalling Windows
One of the most frequently asked questions from our users concerns recovering data after reinstalling Windows. In this article, we would like to explain solving this problem in the way as simple as possible. We really hope that this information will be useful for you.
How to recover data after reinstalling Windows
First of all, we want to remind you that in most cases deleted files can be restored. We have already written about it in one of our articles. Even if you have emptied the Recycle Bin or pressed the Shift + Del keys, the files are still on the hard drive – they just need to be found and restored.
Quite often there are situations when after reinstalling Windows on the computer users understand they failed to copy their personal files from the system disk to any other media. Yet even in this case you can restore deleted data if certain conditions are met. Let’s look at them.
To recover lost files:
- Minimize the information stored on the disk of your computer.
- Prepare additional media (for example, a USB flash drive or an external hard drive). Magic Partition Recovery will be installed on such media, and the recovered data will also be saved there.
Note: We are fully aware that these actions are very troublesome and time-consuming, but the process of recovering data after reinstalling the operating system is complicated and depends largely on how serious your intentions are.
Your solution for data recovery after reinstalling Windows
The professional utility Magic Partition Recovery is designed for both novice users and professionals. The user interface of this program is quite convenient and easy to use, which makes it an ideal solution for most users when recovering deleted files.
One of the main features of Magic Partition Recovery is the ability to build file systems. In order to restore the original file system, Magic Partition Recovery performs analysis of the entire surface of the disk and finds each deleted partition to create a file table for it. If the file system is absent from the disk, the program will create a new one based on what files were detected on your media.
Magic Partition Recovery has been tested on many different types of media. Also, the product works equally well with media of any size.
When recovering lost files after reinstalling Windows, we recommend that you use the “Deep analysis” function.
The program will create a folder “Content-Aware analysis”, where it will add found files, sorting them by extension. Use the “Search” option to find the required file. For convenience, use the “Filter” option to see only deleted files. Use the right pane to restore the required files.
The “View” option allows you to view the contents before recovering deleted files.
