Basics of Data Recovery - Important points to consider when doing Data Recovery using Wondershare Data Recovery

Any data that is written on a disk is not lost until it is overwritten or corrupted purposely or accidentally. Once you delete the data from Recycle Bin or by using Shift+Delete, just the address to that data is removed from the file system but the actual data still remains until it is overwritten by some other data. Overwriting of data happens only when the storage device runs out of free space to write and decides to reuse the data location where you "deleted" the data. This happens in first in first out format, means that the oldest location which was freed by a user is overwritten first.
When you run some data recovery software like Wondershare Data recovery, it searches these "deleted" files and recreates the address that was earlier deleted.
