Each disk format or operating system has its own way of storing files date. A date is a mixture of two variables, a starting point and a count of intervals. There are two parts where user can search files using file date or file size. The typical attributes to a file are:

  • Creation time
  • Modification time
  • Access time

Let us discus few reasons that cause file loss from specific date:

  • Formatting/reformatting
  • Interruptions during files transfer process like sudden power failure, abrupt system shut down etc.
  • Deletion of files from command prompt result in permanent deletion
  • When the file system of hard drive is corrupted or any kind of logical errors will make entire drive inaccessible
  • Emptying Recycle Bin folder without checking its contents
  • Using unauthorized antivirus tool to scan malware threats
  • When user account in Windows system is removed or data is not saved then all related files gets erased automatically
