But before that, let us get familiar with some of the obvious data deletion actions on a Windows computer, so that you’ll get an idea as to how to prevent accidental file deletions in future.

  • Actions that can cause file deletions on a Windows computer and tips to prevent them:
  • The most common one is unintentional file deletion, where you might accidentally perform Shift + Delete actions, empty the Recycle Bin, etc.
  • Errors faced while creating disk partitions, formatting / reformatting a volume, etc. can cause WMA or all files in general, to get deleted from that respective volume
  • Using third party softwares in order to access WMA files such as using an Antivirus to clean up junk files or using any file compression tools incorrectly to compress WMA files can cause them to get deleted
  • Transferring files from one device to another improperly can cause those files to get deleted
  • There are various other reasons that can cause file deletions or sometimes the files just disappear unknowingly

Nevertheless, whatever may be the action leading to file deletion on any Windows computer, what happens is the Windows OS just marks that file, after a file delete action, as free available space ready to overwritten by any other file.

So, unless and until that free space is overwritten by any new file, deleted WMA file recovery can be performed with the help of any reliable media rescue tool such as Remo Recover in order to undelete WMA files.
