Imagine that you have accidentally deleted a file or two in a hurry then after a few days you realize that the files you have deleted were important and now you want to beat yourself to death. So it is a good thing to create a backup of your data often, but anything in between backups is usually lost forever. Well that’s where the software’s like Pandora Recovery come in. The assurance of recovery packages is that they can acquire formerly erased archives back in one piece for you. But to apprehend whether one of them is good or not, you also have to grasp how removing files actually work.
This might come into you as a surprise but when you delete a file, it is not actually gone. Windows merely tags the space on your hard drive, where that file was located, as a place where it can store new files by overwriting the old one. So if the file has not been overwritten yet with something new, recovery software’s like Pandora Recovery can repossess the data and deliver a complete file which is as good as new(but with the data of course). Once the data is been overwritten, it is impossible even for most powerful recovery software to retrieve what has been lost.
