Restoration Description:

Restore files which are deleted from the recycle bin by mistake. Conversely, delete files completely.

Restore files which are deleted from the recycle bin or deleted while holding down the Shift key by mistake.
Conversely, this program has another function that makes it almost impossible to restore all deleted files.
You can use it after deletion of confidential documents, embarrassing files and so on.

You don't have to install it, so it doesn't leave any garbage in the PC.
(You can also run it from a floppy disk.)
Even if a file seems to be restored, there is no guarantee that the contents are correct.
After you run the program, please check the files.
You can probably restore it correctly if the drive has enough free space
and if it's just after deletion.
If you restore a folder, there is no guarantee that all files or folders which used to belong to the folder will be in it.
If you can't find them in it, please search and restore them one by one.
If you still can't find them, it's impossible to restore them.
It will be almost impossible to restore any deleted files if you run the complete deletion function.
To be exact, fragments of deleted files can be in last clusters of existing files or allocated and unwritten files.
(Note that this function is not suitable for TOP SECRET information.)
Even if you find the information of completely deleted files, their contents must be erased.
If you want to erase the information too, please run the function again.

Operating System Support: Windows 95/98/ME/2000/NT/XP

55555 Excellant program

Tried it on Win98. When compared side by side with shareware recover_my_file, Restoration stands up to its recovery peer. It is simple and effective. No fancy intrusive configuration. I hope all software would work like this one: does completely what it is supposed to accomplish. No more, no less.

55555 awesome program

whoops, just toasted that file. well, r-undelete could get at it, so could restorer2000. but they both wanted $60 to retrieve it. the interface here isn't as slick or refined, but it is pretty close to those two while being free! great program!

44444 Good software with a few flaws

I was looking for an easy-to-use "undelete" program and this one fit the bill. The only major drawback is (as previously noted) it requires you to select files one at a time and save them one at a time... It would have been nice to have a way to select files or select all and then restore in one fell swoop.

This leads to the other problem. Instead of re-instating the file into the File System's Allocation Table, it asks you to copy the file somewhere else. The downside to this is that if you have no other drives to copy to, then you risk overwriting the files you're trying save.

Other than that, it's a great free undelete program. I especially like the thoughtful inclusion of filtering by string.
