Computers using an operating system like Windows, commonly use alphabets for naming the disk drives. The hard drive is identified with the letter C. A and B for floppy disks, sometimes it uses for tape drives too. Alphabets after C are used for naming the new partitions in the computer. Generally, the C drive contains all the program files, which means whatever you installed in your system, all the basic files and folders of those applications are saved in the C Drive. So we can say that each and every folder in the C drive are very important. If you delete your folder in the C drive accidentally, then it proves to be a troublesome situation.

How the folder gets deleted from C Drive?

  • Emptied Recycle Bin: Whenever you delete a folder, it will get saved in the Recycle Bin. If you want to restore deleted files from the Recycle Bin, just open the Recycle Bin and select the option “Restore”. But, if you clear the Recycle Bin, then the folder gets deleted permanently and there is no option availed on your system to restore the C drive data.

  • Using Shift + Delete keys: If you delete a folder using Shift and Delete button, then the folder does not go to Recycle Bin. The file will be completely removed from its file location.

  • Virus Attack: Viruses are one of the common reason for deletion/loss of the essential folders from the C drive.

  • Accidental Format: If you accidentally format or re-install the OS then all your data will get deleted as reinstallation process.

Well, the files are not entirely deleted from the hard disk storage even after format, shift-delete, or emptying the recycle bin folder. The deleted files remain in the same storage drive location until they are overwritten by any new files. So, therewith, care must be taken to avoid any further write operation on the disk as soon as deletion occurs. Therefore, unless the deleted files are overwritten, it is possible to regain the C: data using a reliable data recovery application.
