Left mouse click causes file deletion!

Sometimes the most bizarre things can happen on your computer. For instance, think of left click on your mouse deleting files? Yes, although it sounds weird, it has been reported by many users on Windows 10. Incomplete installation of programs and virus attacks on your system are some of the main reasons for this to occur.

No matter what the reason is, it can be pretty frustrating to have a file deleted from your system when you least expect it to. Now if these are important files, you will want to recover them. Of course, as a first step look in the recycle bin. If you find it here, well and good, just restore it back. However, if the files are too large or a Shift Delete operation has occurred, deleted files are not stored in the recycle bin. In such cases, files are deleted permanently and can be recovered only with the help of professional data recovery programs like Hi5 Software.
