There are different data loss scenarios, and data overwriting is one of the most common ones. People usually think that modern operating systems, such as Apple and Windows, immediately overwrite deleted files under regular conditions. This is not true. When computer users delete data, Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and other operating systems erase the corresponding file entries.
Your computer or laptop will overwrite the actual files of the deleted data only when it writes new content. Until this, users can reaccess their lost files with the help of a professional data recovery service.
Recovering overwritten files is possible, but chances for success depend on the case. Getting overwritten files off it is a very complex and challenging process, even for data recovery experts. There are various factors that can affect file recovery results. Thus, it is essential to treat the device with overwritten files carefully.
In the computer data storage system, file overwriting is the process of replacing old data with new data. Usually, overwriting occurs when old unused file systems are written upon with new data. Generally, data that has been overwritten is considered to be unrecoverable. But it all depends on the case, and it can be possible to recover previous versions of data.
What Can Affect Success of Data Recovery Process for Overwritten Files?
- Size of Overwritten Files
- The extent of Media Overwrites
- File Format
- Media Type (HDD, SSD, or RAID)
- File System and Operating System
Recovering overwritten files is not so easy. Because of this, we strongly do not recommend utilizing online data recovery software for such a responsible process. This software is very prone to failure.
If this kind of data recovery tool fails, it can cause additional damage to very vulnerable media and make some files inaccessible. We realize that today digital files that we store on our laptops, computers, and phones are way too meaningful to lose them because of a software mistake.
Facing data loss due to file overwriting, it is better to contact a responsible data recovery company nearby instead of using DIY methods. Experienced data rescue specialists can rebuild partially overwritten files or folders and recover them in the most efficient way. Engineers of our company have repaired hundreds of overwritten hard drives, SSDs, and flash drives.

How To Recover Overwritten Data
Facing data loss due to accidental file deletion or formatting, you should immediately take appropriate steps to limit overwrites. Turn your desktop computer or laptop off right after noticing a problem.
While operating, computers continually read and write data, and the longer your computer runs after accidentally deleting files or formatting, the higher the chances of permanent data loss are.
Thus, do not turn your failed device on before contacting a data recovery specialist. Do not move any type of files to the affected volume or install any software. Commercial data recovery programs use a number of different methods to recover deleted files. Unfortunately, most of this kind of software can cause partial data overwriting and lead to file corruption.
Providing a list of potentially recoverable files, these utilities will not show accurate information if your device has overwritten data. Trying to save some money and time, you risk the safety of your data. The data recovery software is not a security choice because it can spread your recovered files all over the Internet due to its insecure servers.
Contacting us, you get not only a professional approach, guaranteed security of files, and high-quality service, but also a superior evaluation, fast shipping options, and a reasonable pricing policy.
