    Deleted Folder


    I've accidently deleted a big folder of all my drawings i've done through these years.
    And accidently emptied my recycle bin aswell..
    Since I didn't have any internet when I did that, I gave up and shut down my laptop..

    Is there any possibility to get this folder back?

    Try this How-To Geek post:
    How to Recover a Deleted File: The Ultimate Guide

    My suggestion, don't create any new files and don't download large files until you get your data back.

    By deleting the files you remove them from the drive index but not physically, so the files still are somewhere on the drive waiting to be overwritten by something.
