Retrieve Deleted SQL Database

“Hi, I’m in trouble guys please someone help me out from this difficulty. Actually what happened is, I have stored important SQL database files in a folder on my Windows system. Today while going through this folder I noticed few unwanted documents which were not required by me anymore, hence I decided to delete those useless files. Unfortunately while deleting these useless files I have selected an essential SQL database file and deleted it. If I ended up with this I would have restored it back from Recycle Bin, but soon after deleting, I emptied Recycle Bin too. Now I don’t know how to retrieve SQL database file emptied from Recycle Bin?”

Don’t bother much about it because accidentally deleted SQL database files can be restored by employing any reliable Windows file recovery software. But keep this in mind if you save any new data on same folder as this will result in overwriting of deleted SQL database file. Once if it is overwritten, it can’t be restored. So be careful and don’t save data until and unless you are done with recovery.
