Cut and Paste Recovery
"Cut", "Copy" and "Paste" method is an easy option to transfer your files between two different storage devices or different locations. This simple method is applicable to transfer a single file or even Giga bytes of data from one location to another. However, there is a minor drawback of losing some files during the file transfer process. The difference between cut and delete is that cut removes the file from the screen but stores it in the memory. However, the files deleted will be lost permanently.
More about the Cut, Copy, Paste and Delete in the following table.
|COPY - CTRL+C||With this shortcut key you can make a copy of the file which can be transferred to the desired location without having to remove it from the original location.|
|CUT - CTRL+X||Removes the file selected from its original location and can be pasted into any desired location.|
|Paste - CTRL+V||This function is usually used after either copy or cutting to paste the file onto the desired location.|
|Delete -CTRL+D||You can select any file and delete it with this shortcut key. The file will be directly moved to Recycle Bin.|
When deleted or lost files are not available in both the source and destination folder it means that the file has lost its access path, so it is not physically present and not accessible in file explorer. But the storage space assigned to that particular file is still occupied by the same file. This positive sign allows you to recover files lost during cut-paste from your computer.
Ensure that you do not use the same device until you recover lost files after cutting and pasting. Because overwriting of data reduces the possibility of safely restoring files that are permanently deleted.
