Best File and folder recovery for hard drive to recover deleted files and folders from hard drive in Windows 7/10/8/XP.
Files are organized by storing related files in the same directory. In a hierarchical filesystem (that is, one in which files and directories are organized in a manner that resembles a tree), a directory contained inside another directory is called a subdirectory. The terms parent and child are often used to describe the relationship between a subdirectory and the directory in which it is cataloged, the latter being the parent. The top-most directory in such a filesystem, which does not have a parent of its own, is called the root directory.
A directory is a file system cataloging structure which contains references to other computer files, and possibly other directories. On many computers, directories are known as folders (A folder is a virtual location where programs, files, and other folders can be located. Computers with an Apple, Microsoft Windows, or other GUI operating system have folders to help users store and organize their files and are accessed using a File Manager.), or drawers to provide some relevancy to a workbench or the traditional office file cabinet.
In some cases, data on a hard disk drive can be unreadable due to damage to the partition table or file system, or to (intermittent) media errors. In the majority of these cases, at least a portion of the original data can be recovered by repairing the damaged partition table or file system using specialized data recovery software.
Most files and folders can be recovered with original file names whatever the data loss reasons. Only a few files and folders can be recovered but without original file names. These files need to be scanned by “file type”.
