Adding more... when you even do not have any backup for the same. Unfortunate, right? We've all been there. Just last week I formatted my computer and later found that I didn't have any backup for some recently saved important files. It was an absolute nightmare. We have frequently been asked, "All my files have been encrypted or deleted by malware, what should I do now? Is there any way I can recover them without paying a ransom?" Well, whether you lose your files due to a cyber-attack, ransomware, wiper malware, or even accidentally, fortunately, some data recovery software better your chances of recovering your deleted or lost files. There are many data recovery software available in the market that allows you to recover most of your accidentally deleted files as well as data from damaged or formatted hard drives. However, when we talk about an easy-to-use solution, I find [Stellar Data Recovery Premium software](<https://www.stellarinfo.com/disk-recovery/data-recovery-premium.php?utm_source=Review&utm_medium=thehackernews&utm_campaign=WDR_Premium>) as an obvious first choice among file recovery software due to its efficient and straightforward interface, which also makes it an excellent choice for non-technical users.
