If you canâ€™t locate a lost file from your backup, then you can use Windows File Recovery, which is a command line app created by Microsoft available from the Microsoft Store. Use this app to try to recover lost files that have been deleted from your local storage device (including internal drives, external drives, and USB devices) and canâ€™t be restored from the Recycle Bin. Recovery on cloud storage and network file shares is not supported.
