I had a collection of my favorite music stored over five years on my computer. The music folder contained many selected and purchased songs in .wav format. I choose to use this file format over other popular audio file format such as .mp3 for my music collection as this is the only format which has the highest audio quality. Songs in WAV format really pumped up by home theatre system. But recently, while manually cleaning up junk files, I accidentally deleted my music folder. The size of that music folder was approximately over 8 GB, which was way too big for the Recycle Bin and hence it bypassed it. The folder was permanently deleted. What a blunder! I lost my favorite collection of songs within seconds. Is there any possibility to recover deleted wav files? If yes, how can I recover them and what software do I use? Please help.
In Windows operating systems, it is designed for Recycle Bin to store deleted contents up to its allotted capacity. And once the space allotted to the Recycle Bin gets full, the previously deleted contents gets replaced with newly deleted contents. The process goes on this way. But, if the deleted file or folder is bigger than the space allotted for the Recycle Bin, the system automatically deletes that data directly without moving it to the Recycle Bin. However, this command is prompted with the user before performing the delete action. Nevertheless, in this case, you can recover deleted WAV files if you act quickly and wisely. Read on to know how to recover deleted WAV files successfully and which is the appropriate file recovery tool you should be using.
