    Best Windows undelete software

    Does anyone have any recommendations for the best file undelete
    software?

    For example, for when I empty the recycle bin with a file that I
    didn't want to delete.

    What I want is something that I can have on computer for when I do
    something really stupid.

    The software has to support

    * Windows 2000
    * Windows XP
    * Windows 2003 Server (32 bit and 64 bit)
    * Windows Vista

    The filesystem driver assumes that you don't do "something really
    stupid" in the first place, so it does not preserve deleted files in any
    way. You have no guarantee that you can restore deleted files.
    Assuming otherwise would render today's filesystems totally inefficient.

    Stick to the recommendation of another poster in this thread and use
    backups instead.

    For really trouble free backups, I use SynchBackSE. It costs about $20.
    You can set up different profiles to copy different directories, drives,
    parts of directories or whatever to CD, DVD, FlashDrive, or 2nd or third
    hard drive. Never found anything easier -set it and forget it.

    Undelete from Diskeeper is what you are looking for, I think. It
    replaces the recycle bin with it's own version of it.

    You can check out the trial versions here:

    The filesystem does only one thing when you delete a file: it erases the
    entry in the file allocation table (like ripping out an index-line of
    book) thus in effect making the still used filesystemblocks available
    for overwriting...
    Formatting a disk does the same: either just write a new file allocation
    table or first check the sectors on the disc if they can be used (if not
    register them as such) en then write the file allocation table. The
    content of the disc remains intact until overwritten.
    The only time when you can restore a file almost certainly is when you
    notice the accidental delete,you stop all harddisc access. Otherwise
    this access might just overwrite the datablocks on the disc that were
    just released from the file allocation table.

    Vista maybe, but Windows Server 2003 certainly have a feature called
    shadow copy. Study it an use it. It allows for undeleting files after
    deleting them, but only for as long as the shadow copy of that
    particular file is still on the server and not replaced.

    As for the tools: google for "undelete windows 2000" and you get quite a
    big selection of tools available.

    Last but not least: as some others said: backup backup backup
    and...backup (with history).

    Greetings
    Eric

    Ojas ... I hope you got a decent reply to your question. If so, what did you find for a good undelete program?

    So this is your first post at techarena.in (a Usenet-leeching web
    'forum'), and you are a spammer.

    "Price per Unit 139.95 USD" <lol>

    [you replied to yourself]

    So does it work (restore) if you don't pay? How much of the $139.95 do
    you get?
