“I was cleaning up My Desktop by moving the folders containing pictures and files to My Documents using drag and drop option. While moving these files, all of a sudden my Windows computer stopped and the file transfer process ended. 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 recover them back; any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!”

Situations That Leads to Loss of Files During Move

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 option that can be accomplished either using Ctrl + C / Ctrl + X 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 pasting (moving) the files, then you will lose files for sure. Some of the causes or interruptions are listed below:

  • Power Failure: This is one of the most common situations which would interrupt the file moving process. If 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, the process may 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.

Due to these interruptions, you might lose your important files. But there is no need to worry, as this Remo file recovery tool lets you recover files lost due to any data loss scenario. The utility is result-oriented and works independently of the situation behind the data loss, hence, it could easily restore all your files back.

Important Tips To Avoid Data Loss While Moving Files:

  • Stop using the storage drive, after you lose data from it while moving files.
  • Use Ctrl + C rather than Ctrl + X.
  • Maintain power back up to avoid an abrupt computer shutdown.
