First Things We Need to Know-Store and Delete

To recover the lost file successfully, the first thing we need to know is how the files store or delete on a hard drive.

When you delete a file, the operating system will not do any operation to the partition which the file is there, but only free up the space for it.

Turn to the file deletion, when a file is deleted, the real file is still there, only the space is free up for the new data and you still have chances to get it back.
