Windows Help & Advice - - WINDOWS 10 OCTOBER 2018 UPDATE REVEALED -

1 In­stall Re­cuva

If nec­es­sary, down­load the por­ta­ble ver­sion of Re­cuva (from www. ccleaner.com/re­cuva/builds) di­rectly to any drive other than the one Win­dows is in­stalled on. Next, ex­tract the con­tents of the ZIP file to the same drive, then dou­ble-click re­cuva.exe (32-bit) or re­cuva64.exe (64-bit) to get started.

2 Re­cover filested

The wizard will guide you through the process of re­cov­er­ing your files – in all like­li­hood you’ll need to leave All Files se­lected. Click ‘Next’, then click Browse un­der ‘Spe­cific lo­ca­tion’ to se­lect C:\Users\{User­name} where most of your miss­ing files should nor­mally re­side. Click ‘Next’.

3 Deep Scan

If your files only re­cently went miss­ing, don’t en­able the Deep Scan op­tion. In­stead, click Start and wait for the scan to com­plete. A list of files will be dis­played – green ones should be re­cov­er­able. Tick those you want to re­store and click Re­cover to save them to a dif­fer­ent drive.
