Recover Files Lost During Move

Posted by:

I was cleaning up my desktop by moving the folders containing pictures to “my documents” using the drag and drop technique. While moving the files all of a sudden my system froze and the file transfer process halted. I even waited for it to respond but it didn’t, so I eventually just right clicked on the folder in the taskbar and clicked “close” and then “end now”. But after I restarted my PC the folders that I dragged from the desktop claim to be empty. I have no idea how to get them back; any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

That’s very sad to lose precious files due to a simple move operation. Most of the people might have encountered such instances. However, now there is no need to worry, as you have a solution to recover files lost during move operation. You don’t have to worry because it’s not a permanent loss, your files will still be present on your hard drive or any storage media like memory card, pen drives, etc. until new data is added and can be easily recovered with the aid of recovery software.

Situations that might lead to loss of files

There are various ways in which you can move files from one location to another on your system. One extensively used method is the cut and paste options that can be accomplished either using Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V commands or directly using the right click menu options Cut and Paste. Otherwise, you can just drag the folder to be moved and drop at any location of your choice.
While performing these actions, if any interruptions occur before moving the files, then you will lose those files for sure. Some of the causes or interruptions are as listed below:

  • Power Failure: This is one of the most common situations which would interrupt the file moving process. If a your system shuts down due to power failure before you paste cut files or before all files are transferred, then file moving process halts and you lose all files that were being moved.
  • Improper Removal of the Drives: While moving your files from the external device to the system or vice versa can get abruptly terminated when you forcefully eject your external storage media like external hard disk, pen drive, memory card and so on.
  • Other Causes: Some of the other possible reasons due to which file transfer gets interrupted include application malfunction, improper system termination, hardware failure, etc.
