Maybe you mistakenly deleted a crucial file, otherwise, you cleaned your disk drive, or perhaps you’re unsure of what to do with corrupted data – Windows File Recovery can help recover your data.
“For photos, documents, videos, and more, Windows File Recovery supports many file types to assist make sure that your data isn’t permanently lost.”

“Recovering from a camera or SD card? Try Signature mode, which expands beyond NTFS recovery and caters to your memory device needs,” Microsoft said.
“Let this app be your first choice for helping to seek out what you would like from your disk drive, SSD, USB drive, or memory cards.”
On its file recovery support page, Microsoft notes that if you would like to extend your chances of recovering a file, you ought to minimize or avoid using your computer.
“In the Windows file system, the space used by a deleted file is marked as free space, which suggests the file data can still exist and be recovered,” Microsoft said.
I currently make use of EaseUS Data Recovery, which has been helping me recover deleted files… but with this now available on Windows 10, then you don’t need to lose any longer files mistakenly deleted.
