well if you use the pc after file deletion, that means the hard drive writes file on the deleted file portion then recovery chance goes down. you have to try some software depending their algorithm chances of recovery is different, you have also consider paid applications.

Use Windows System Restore to Recover Individual Files

Download ZAR demo. You do not need a paid version of ZAR to do photo recovery.

It is possible to recover your files, try or
However if you have direct access to the shared hard drive, then it will be easier, but if it is remotely locked from other software to access it, then it will be impossible, install the software and see if it has access to the drive c, then try locate your user account and do a scan...

Hi @sridhar

In computer we have two type of users. 1 standard user 2 Admin user. A standard user have limited access. He won't be able to recover any file that is deleted from Admin account like System administrator. Admin have access to all standard user's file and have ability to manage or remove them.

Kindly contact your system admin. He will be able to help you.

I am a retired College professor. In college system most college teacher are secondary user and do not have administrative right to do any correction except t delete personal files. I used to backup new files I created before I left. Also most important is to sign out from the PC system before you leave. If other professor came in and used the same PC and they did not logout for you, they are eligible to log in with your credential, they can delete your files. Nowaday the big capacity external hard drive are very cheap, buy one and used for back up is most ideal. Hope it can resolve your prolems.
