As much as most iPad users save a lot of data in their devices including music, videos, documents and even apps, they will also be the first to tell you that the data on their devices is not 100% secure. Losing data on an iPad is a common occurrence and there are lots of reasons for it. As unbelievable as it sounds one of the most common reasons for data lost on an iPad or any device for that matter is accidental deletion.

But regardless of how you came to lose your data, it is vital that you have a reliable way to get back that data. In this article we are going to discuss the issue of data loss in an iPad as well as offer you a comprehensive solution for recovering this data easily and quickly.

Part 1: Is There a Trash Can App on iPad?

Normally when you delete a file on your computer, it is sent to the recycle bin or the trash bin. Unless you empty the bin, you can recover the data at any time. This is great because when you accidentally delete your data, you don't need any special software to help you get it back, simply open the recycle bin and recover the data.

Unfortunately the iPad doesn't come with the same functionality. This means that any data you delete on your iPad whether accidentally or otherwise will be lost completely unless you have a powerful data recovery tool to help.

Part 2: What to Do When you Accidentally Delete Something Important

First of all, stop using the iPad immediately. This is because the more new files you save on your device the higher the chance that you will overwrite the missing data and make it more difficult to recover the data. It is also a very good idea to recover the data using a data recovery tool as soon as you can. This will increase your chances of being able to quickly recover the data.
