How to recover the deleted files

There is a software called Pandora Recovery which can recover your permanently deleted files.

It is a completely free software but very very useful.

How the software works

When you permanently delete your files, it is not actually permanently deleted from your hard disc. Windows simply marks the memory space as free for use by changing a character in the File Allocation Table. So a very important thing is, you need to recover the file before the particular memory space is overwritten by windows. At any time windows can overwrite the file and after the memory space is overwritten nothing can be done.
