In this article we have discussed the manual scenarios to recover data from Windows 10 through some backup and recovery tools which are offered by it.
Hello everyone, do you make use of any consistent solution that provide free data recovery for Windows 10 to recover lost data? Few days back only I switched to Windows 10 because Windows 10 provides so many great features and a great app store as compared to earlier versions.

I downloaded many amazing applications from the App Store. One of them was music app and downloaded many songs from there. Two day ago, my friend came to enjoy music with me and tried to transfer music files into her phone, and she started transferring the file by copy and paste method, later by mistake she cut the file and forgot to copy and directly paste it. Then suddenly my system hanged and transfer procedure was stopped. And when I started again my system files were gone. Not a single music was transferred into my friend’s phone. However, no files were left in my system as well as in recycle bin. So I recovered my data from Windows 10 through below mentioned manual process. Just go through this article, I am sure it will help you out to recover your lost data too. 

Although Windows 10 does not introduce any new backup or recovery tools, but offers great upgrade feature to the tool it earlier offered in Windows 7 and 8. Windows contains numeral technologies for copying and backing up documents and other files on your PC.

Some of the backup and recovery tools offered by Windows 10.
  1. File History. File History automatically restore your most important files to a separate network location or hard drive. But this approach is better as compared to simple backup. File History also allows you to retrieve previous versions of a file, so that if you do any modification to a file or document, you can “go back in time” and convert them to any previous versions. This version of Windows backup more locations automatically and works almost completely from the Settings app, avoiding the need to retrieve the legacy control panel interface.
 
  1. PC Reset. Windows 8 contains “push button reset” tool i.e. PC Reset and PC Refresh that have been modified into a particular tool that lets you return the PC in the same condition when you first purchased it.  However, you can do so without any destruction, where you keep all your data and other documents, as well as apps that you have installed, if needed. And you can clear the PC firmly, which is fine because if you want to sell your PC or give away, you no need to worry about anyone retrieving your personal data.
 
  1. System image backup. Windows 10 restore full Windows Backup tool-set, and now you can make a full system image backup and easily restore your complete PC from it, but also provides a backup plan that keeps your PC backed up over time. Moreover, you can easily make use of this tool to recover the files in any backups that you have made earlier in Windows 7 or 8.x.
 
  1. Windows Recovery Environment. Windows 10 allows the user to boot the PC into a Windows Recovery Environment that can be used to execute various system restore activities and troubleshooting by means of enhanced recovery tools. This environment is same since Windows 8, and it can be very beneficial in the situation when there is something going wrong with your PC.  It allows the user to access tools like selective startup, Startup Repair, System Image Recovery a command prompt, and System Restore.
