  1. Unable to locate and retrieve folders and files of photographs stored on PC hard drive


    I have been unable to locate and retrieve folders and files of photographs stored on this hard drive since I downloaded them years before 09/01/2018. Every folder had a category name, is; Family, Funny memes, Birthday memes, My Headshot Photos, Cars, etc. and so did the sub-folders for photo files of a certain person, place or thing.

    Is it true that even if folders, files and photos were erased that they still exist on the hard drive and never truly erased?

    So is there still a way to recover the data from the hard drive?

    :)

    Stored files in Hard Drive

    I'd like to know if there's a way of listing all the files stored in my hardware and arrange them by size, because I want to keep track of what's on my hard drive. Thanks, I hope you answer.

    You can use Windows search. Just search for *.* on a desired drive. When list is done just arrange them by size LOL.

    You can do it via command line as well and make an output text file showing files and their sizes (but without arrangement)
