I accidentally deleted a whole folder of an alphabet! Is there a way to recover it? Thanks in advance to whoever can help me!

Yikes! That would be an awful event! Good suggestions below.

Also, remember to back up your files on a usb stick or other external drives that you may have and back up often. If you purchased them from a website, you might contact them and see if they can resend the alphabet! If it was a "free" alphabet, they might not help you out.

Sorry to hear about your missing folder! it happened to me last week, my entire embroidery design folder gone, I had to take it to a technician and it took him hours to find it. A very stressful time, but he managed to find it in the computer inner brain. Wow, I was so happy. Holding thumbs for you:)

Yes, if it was small enough, you'll find it in the computer trash. If you deleted it permanently, then you'll need a computer person with special software to get it back.

If you haven't cleaned out your Recycle Bin, go there, and use Recycle Bin tools to select and restore the file(s). You can move a whole folder in one step.
