Recover Lost Or Deleted Files
If you improperly edit, accidentally delete or corrupt a file or folder through a system crash, in many cases you can restore a previous version of the file or folder. You probably know that a visit to the Recycle Bin will typically let you recover an accidentally deleted file or folder. But what happens if you’re editing a file such as a document or photo and mistakenly save it with unwanted changes? In either case there is a good chance you can recover the file or folder by using a built in protection feature called Previous Versions.
TIP: To replace the contents of a complete folder. Find the Folder that the folder you deleted was located in. Make a backup of all the other folders and files in that folder to another location. Right click on the folder and click on Previous Versions. Select the newest folder on the list and follow the on screen instructions. Your deleted folder should reappear. Now bring back the other folders from the backup.
If you are replacing a file, right click on the folder that contained the file, click on Previous Versions. When the list appears double click on the folder to open it and save the deleted or former file to the desktop. Now you can drag it back into the correct folder. If you want to keep both copies of a file change the name of one of them by adding a letter or number.
