✔ Best Answer
If you've accidentally deleted files (and assuming they're not in the Recycle Bin---assuming Win8 has such, never used it), then you'll likely need some software to recover them. Here's one that I've used with XP/Win7 and had pretty decent results:

Stick to the free or portable version and make sure to uncheck anything it wants to add on (besides the application itself)...

Just to clarify the situation... Was the drive reformatted and the an OS installed - consequence of which you lost all your files?
