    Where Could Deleted Files Be?


    Win10.

    I copied hundreds of image files from G: to E: to make room on G: for Macrium images.

    Looking at the sizes they didn't match so I tried to get duplicate finder software to compare the directories so's I'd know what was missing and be in a position to delete those safely copied over.

    I was trying out a number of freeware tools - three or four of them - and got nervous about each of them because none of them made clear up front whether I was going to be offered an option of what to do... so I didn't actually go the full distance with any of them....

    Aborted them all.

    But now I find the G: directory is nearly empty. And the E: directory I already knew to be incomplete.

    I looked in the Recycle bin on the desktop and the last recycled files it finds are back on 25 July.

    Is that one bin supposed to handle all drives?

    Do perhaps these tools lock folders or files while working and my aborting leaves things in an uncertain state so's files effectively disappear perhaps?

    Is there anywhere I could look for these missing files... ?

    :)

    deleting hard drive files

    Hi,

    May we know what type of file are you trying to delete? Would it be Office documents, media files, or picture files? If you're trying to delete files for free some space on your device. We suggest to perform a Disc Cleanup. Kindly follow the steps below to
    perform the task:

    • Type in Cortana Disc Cleanup
    • Choose the files to delete
    • Click on "Clean up system files"
    • Click on Ok

    For any concerns, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Regards.
