Essential Software: FreeUndelete

This is a great free file recovery tool. It is simple to operate: select drive and scan, select files to recover (multiple selections can be achieved using ctrl + click) , it prevents you from selecting source (the location you are recovering from) as the destination to restore for obvious reasons. Caution: A]: Don’t install to the drive you lost data on (if you only have a C drive go to the next step), B]: in case of C being your only drive letter, try to recover data to a flash or other media drive (of course, burning software uses a temp folder for storing what is to be burnt, so if you only have C, burning to disk would be a bad idea).

  • Supports FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS file systems.
  • Easy to use. No special user skills required.
  • Available for all modern platforms: Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 Server/Vista

Does not support Windows 98, Windows 98SE and Windows ME (Sorry).
