Easily restore permanently deleted MP3 & other audio files with Advanced File Recovery.
Saving music offline is definitely what every one of us has done in the past. However, with the rise of streaming platforms and the availability of online music, offline storage has just become obsolete. However, many of us still keep our music files offline, especially artists who create, record, mix and customize their audio files for multiple purposes.
If online music files are deleted, you always have the option to download them again. However, if you delete an audio file or a created music file, it can ruin your project. Since musicians and producers have multiple tracks on their hard drives, they often delete music files thinking they do not want them, and later realize they deleted an important audio file.
If this has happened to you, worry not. In this blog, we will look at how you can recover deleted music and audio files on Windows. If you have deleted a music file you never wanted to remove, or know an artist friend who faces a similar problem, make sure you read it till the end.
Well, the best part of using a Windows PC is that it is foolproof. Multiple set mechanisms ensure that you do not make mistakes unless you want to make them. The same goes for the unintentional removal of files. If you delete an audio file on Windows by chance, there are always a few ways to recover them. The first one that we are going to discuss is the Recycle Bin.
Now, the concept of calling Windows a foolproof operating system becomes even more firm with the existence of a Recycle Bin. What is that? It is a basic entity you can find in every version of Windows. Basically, whenever you delete a file from your PC, it does not automatically disappear from the drive. It is moved to the Recycle Bin so you can recover it.
If you have simply deleted a folder with files in it, or while selecting multiple files, your important files got mixed up and were deleted, do not worry. You can still recover them.
Go to your Desktop and find the Recycle Bin. If you can't find the bin icon on your Desktop, simply click on the Start menu, search for the Recycle Bin, and open it.
Once you have opened the bin, look for the deleted audio files you want to restore.
From there, select the file and double-click on it to view the properties > confirm that it is the exact file you want to retrieve and click the Restore button.
The files will be restored to the original location they were saved before deleting.
However, if you have a habit of deleting files using the Shift + Delete key combination, you can no longer recover files from Recycle Bin. In this case, you will need to use a recovery tool. Read the next method to learn how to restore audio files using Advanced File Recovery.
The Advanced File Recovery tool is a third-party application that works smoothly with Windows and helps recover deleted files. It is an all-inclusive data recovery software that can assist you in retrieving deleted audio files, documents, videos, etc from any type of storage device.
