File Recovery - Undelete and data recovery tool

File Recovery is a data recovery tool for Windows users. It can recover deleted files with the original time and date stamp (even when a header entry is no longer available), find lost drive, et.

Platform: Windows

It's common that we could lose data or files on our computer. Some common scenarios for data or file lost are:

  • You accidentally deleted files.
  • You lost data due to power outage or blackout.
  • Computer virus deleted your files.
  • After disk formatting, you realize there are some data on the formatted disk you want to keep.
  • System crash such as the notorious Blue Screen of Death.

So can you reconstruct damaged files? Yes, you can use PC Inspector's File Recovery tool for the rescue. Make sure you also check out another more powerful recovery tool Recuva - file undelete program.

Features of the File Recovery program:

  • Recovers deleted files.
  • Finds lost drive (if the drive letter is lost or the drive is inaccessible).
  • Finds partitions automatically, even if the boot sector or FAT has been erased or damaged.
  • Recovers files with the original time and date stamp.
  • Supports the saving of recovered files on network drives.
  • Recovers files, even when a header entry is no longer available.

Note that:

(1) A second hard disk is recommended for recovery use.
(2) File Recovery can not help you if the data media was damaged physically - there are mechanical problems with the disk drive.

The following is a demo showing how to recover a deleted file.

Step 1: Delete the image file 001.JPG from thumb drive. I will use File Recovery to get it back.

Step 2: Open File Recovery program and go to select drive window.

My thumb drive is F drive so I selected it from the drive's list, and then I clicked the green tick located on the right hand side of the window. Note that you need to select its logical drive first and then you can switch to the physical drive if you want.

Step 3: Select the deleted file to recover.

The deleted file is inside the Delete folder (see the trash can icon below). There are six types of information about a deleted file: Name, Size, Date modified, Cluster, Condition, Type. Right click on the file name and then choose Save to... in the pop up menu.

Because this deleted image file is shown to be in good condition - which means when I save it back, it will still be usable, so I approached to next step.

Step 4: Select a destination folder to save the deleted file.

It is recommended to save the lost or deleted file on another drive. Otherwise, lost/deleted file may be overwritten if it's saved on the same drive where it was originally deleted.

I saved deleted file to D:\Compare folder, which is different to the F drive where I deleted the original image file. When I opened it, it was the original file I deleted. Everything was in perfect condition.
