More and more users like running computer with Windows 10 operating system since this excellent OS has been greatly improved in many aspects nowadays. However, this OS cannot ensure absolute data security. For instance, users may mistakenly delete some precious photos, and they don’t know how to get deleted files back.
Now, in today’s post, I am going to introduce four different ways to recover lost pictures from computer.
Solution 1: Recover Deleted Pictures from Recycle Bin
As we know, Recycle Bin is a temporary storage for files that have been deleted in a file manager, but not yet permanently erased from the file system. Thus, if you delete pictures or other files mistakenly, you can easily get them back from the recycle bin. Open the Recycle Bin, then find needed files, and restore them, as shown below.
Please note that it might be the easiest way to restore lost pictures from computer hard drive. However, what if you cannot find needed files from Recycle Bin?
