Many people like to use Samsung SSD drive because it provides a safer and faster solution for data storage and transferring, but you may still run into data loss problem on Samsung SSD drive in following situations:
Are you facing the similar data loss issue on your Samsung SSD drive? If this is the situation, you do not need to worry about data loss since data from the Samsung ssd can be restored in most logical and human errors.
Does Samsung SSD have a recylce bin that holds the deleted files?
No, Samsung SSDs (Solid State Drives) do not have a built-in recycle bin or trash folder like operating systems do. The recycle bin is a feature of the operating system, such as Windows or macOS, and is typically used for managing deleted files on the file system level.
When you delete a file from a Samsung SSD, it is typically immediately marked as deleted and the space it occupied is marked as available for reuse. The SSD does not move the file to a separate recycle bin or trash folder within its own storage. Instead, the operating system handles the deletion process and manages the recycle bin functionality.
To recover deleted files from the Windows recycle bin, regardless of the storage device being used (including Samsung SSDs), you can follow these steps:
Open the recycle bin: Double-click on the recycle bin icon on your Windows desktop. This will open the recycle bin window.
Locate the deleted files: Scroll through the list of deleted files in the recycle bin to find the ones you want to recover. You can also use the search box at the top-right corner to search for specific file names.
Select the files: Click on the checkboxes next to the files you wish to recover. If you want to recover all the files, you can click on the checkbox at the top-left corner to select all.
Restore the files: Once you have selected the files you want to recover, right-click on any of the selected files and choose the "Restore" option from the context menu. This will restore the files to their original location before they were deleted.
Check the restored files: Navigate to the original location of the restored files to confirm that they have been successfully recovered.
It's important to note that the recycle bin is a temporary storage location for deleted files. If the recycle bin has been emptied, or if the files were deleted using the "Shift + Delete" shortcut, they bypass the recycle bin and are permanently deleted. In such cases, you may need to use specialized file recovery software to attempt to recover the deleted files.
