    How can I view my deleted excel files?

    Hey, everyone there! I think I need your help here. In fact, I have stored many excel files of some business information on my Kingston USB flash drive. But, I just deleted some of them when viewing them on my laptop yesterday. I had checked the recycle bin. There was nothing there. Where were my files? Is it still possible for me to view these deleted files? Please give me some help. I need some detailed suggestions. Thank you in advance!

    Hi Marcu563,

    Unfortunately, files deleted from USB drives do not go into Recycle Bin and therefore can't be recovered.

    Yes, the files deleted from an external USB flash drive often cannot be found in Recycle Bin. But, that’s not to say, your lost data cannot be rescued back from this USB flash drive.
    So, stop using it and check whether all your lost data is recoverable with the help of a data recovery tool, like Recuva, iCare Data Recovery Free and 4Card Recovery, etc.
    And then, back up all your restored files on a different storage device in case of data loss.
    I hope this can help you.

    I have no experience in recovering deleted files. Though this might help you: http://www.recovermyfiles.com/recove...-documents.php. I think there are also other ways to do this. You can search the web for more information.

    Although post #6 was reported as spam it doesn't contain any links and hence isn't contrary to any rule and is therefore not in my opinion spam, rather a recommendation/suggestion

    If anything the last posting in 2014 which did contain a link was spam but was clearly not picked up at the time.
