Many of us still couldn’t believe that with market that huge, freeware slowly became part of us taken up all the space in our computer. Convenient? Not exactly, but for its function, I would say it is quite extraordinary.

Free Method for Recovering Deleted Files for Windows Users

Command prompt data recovery:

open cmd
CMD Recovery

Command line brief: Chkdsk recover

How does that work? Please take a step down and continue reading.

Command recover was widely used in most version of windows, as its index tells us: “The recover command is used to recover readable data from a bad or defective disk. The recover command is available in Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.”

So if data losses are caused by defective bad disk/chip or what we call bad sector, recover is the exact command you are looking for to perform such action to those. Deleted files can only be recovered in MS-DOS with “undelete”.

To check its directory, please enter command-line chkdsk with drive name. or use dir. as its index tells us: “The Dir command is used to display a list of files and folders contained inside the folder that you are currently working in. The DIR command also displays other important information like the hard drive's serial number, the total number of files listed, their combined size, the total amount of free space left on the drive, and more. The DIR command is available in all versions of Windows, as well as in MS-DOS.”

If anyone wants to know, PowerShell does the same trick as its command-line are quite similar as many people actually says, it might be a replacement of command prompt as its evolution for the past decades.
