Have you ever accidentally deleted your worthless cryptocurrency wallet, only to realize that years after you deleted it, the value soared? Well you aren’t alone, and here is a guide that actually gives you a chance of recovering deleted wallet.dat files. If you deleted the wallet prior to the last automatically generated Windows restore point, you may just want try restoring your PC to a previous version before attempting this process, as the deep scan can take several hours...

This is a nice guide but it won't work when you have formatted your PC or hard drive before doing the recovery process. It will also not work on wallet.dat files that was deleted for two years and above. That's why it is important to back up your private keys and seeds online in a secure cloud storage so that you can still recover it even if you formatted your PC.

I would strongly advise against this. Secure cloud storage is only secure until it isn't. Storing seeds/private keys online somewhere makes retrieving it more convenient, but also opens up another attack vector. Storing them physically makes them impossible for hackers to get to. Robbers can still get them (only if they know about them too), sure, but if one enters your home, you likely have bigger problems.

Please, modify the title to "How to Recover a fresh Deleted Cryptocurrency Wallet."The file recovery process also depends on the modification to the hard drive after the formatting process. So the best advice is "do not modify your files"create a new one" after  formatting if you want to restore files."

Download recovery software free trial on the computer you deleted the wallet from. WINDOWS DOWNLOAD – MAC DOWNLOAD
Personally, I believe that downloading any new files, "even this program" will reduce the chances of recovery.

If you have located the missing wallet, it is likely worth upgrading to the full version to recover your file, depending on the value tradeoff.
You do not need to download a whole blockchain but bitcoin core (the only wallet uses the wallet.dat format)
1. use prune ( reduce disk-space).
2. use dumpprivkey and export your Pvt key into SPV wallet.

Once the computer is reformatted, any recovery efforts will no longer work. My way is to print it out and keep it where you know it. Every care will always bring good effect to your property.
