We all need a way to recover deleted files, Windows XP users as well. But is there really a way, and does it matter how deleted our files may be? After all, me may delete a file and not realize it until the recycle bin has been purged – worse yet, we might get a monstrously destructive virus from off of the internet, freezing up our PCs and leaving us with no other alternative but to completely start over, formatting our hard drive, and reinstalling our operating system. That right there, is just about as deleted as you can possibly get, am I right?
Well, even this is no problem, as data actually never really leaves your system… it’s always on your hard drive in one form or another. To recover deleted files (Windows XP users, or VISTA users, or anyone), all you really need is to coax it out of your computer somehow. This leads people to think one would have to be some kind of geeky computer hacker in order to recover deleted files. Windows XP, Windows VISTA, or even Windows 98 it really just makes no difference, you do not need to have elite hacking skills in order to perform this task.
Truth be told, it’s all done with special software. This is very much the same type of software used by government agencies to grab information off of any computer, regardless of whether the system being completely purged of all data or not. Any and all deletions can be easily retrieved, all with just a matter of a few clicks of your mouse.
