The following situation is common to us. Sometimes there are too many files or folders in our PC, so we clear them to make the computer perform better. There are two methods we usually take, erasing files/folders/partitions or formatting the partition/disk directly. It takes a short time to erase or format, however, it will take a long time to unerase files/folders/partitions once we find some important files or hidden files are lost. To unerase files makes many computer users frantic because they think they have to re-do the erased files and don't know they could call for manual recovery or use data recovery software to unerase files. Here is some knowledge about erasing files to learn before we get acquaintance with the easy and safe method to unerase.

Methods to Erase Files

The first method to erase files is to erase files and empty the recycle bin. It looks that erased files are disappeared, however they aren't immediately destroyed. Windows simply marks the hard drive space as being available for use by changing one character in the file table so that the file entry won't be displayed in My Computer or a command line DIR command, etc. Please see: How can I Recover Deleted Recycle Bin Files?

Another one to erase files is to format the partition or disk directly. Usually we choose "quick format", which is the quickest way to make files disappear. Now we should know that quick format doesn't hurt the original files in partition. The procedure of format is just to rewrite the table of partition. That means the files are still at the original place after the quick format. This offers opportunities to recover data after format from hard drive/disk for those who want to perform formatted disk data recovery. Please see: How to Unformat Hard Drive?
