It is not rare that at one point in time you deleted a certain file off your computer without backing it up.
You probably did not delete it, someone who wanted to get a copy of a certain file off your laptop, home desktop, SD card and left you with a virus.
It could also be someone who shared your Hard-drive or Flash-drive and corrupted or lost all the data which was on it to a virus or accidentally all the data was swiped off. Sometimes, your hard-drive or computer could be exposed to heavy radiation and you find all the data lost.
Many times, computer users complain about losing some or all their data, which may be due to many reasons. A friend earlier this year approached me about losing over 50GB of his movies on his new 1 TB hard drive, and this was due to plugging it into an infected computer.
One of the very commonest ways people lose data as mentioned above is to viruses. Naiver user or not, a virus attack might catch you unaware. Other reasons include, damages to hard-drive, malicious software corrupting your data, a human error of formatting or overwriting, power outage during a transfer and so much more.
The good news is, losing data is from way back. You can recover your lost data, do not lose hope. While there exist many ways of preventing data loss, if it is lost, you can get it back.
