Simple file recovery

Restore deleted files with ease using this intuitive program.

iUndelete is an easy-to-use utility that allows users to recover deleted documents. Although it won't work miracles, users stand a good chance of recovering lost data with this program.

The program's interface is simple and intuitive, allowing us to get started right away. For testing purposes, we created a Word document and deleted it. We hadn't emptied our Recycle Bin in a while either, so we did that, too. Then we clicked the Scan button and the program went to work. It quickly returned a list of the deleted files it had found, organized in a tree structure. We found our Word document without trouble, along with quite a few other files, but some JPEGs that had been in our Recycle Bin didn't turn up. We were able to make sure of this by filtering the search results by file type, a useful feature. (Users can filter by file size and date, as well.) As the built-in Help file explains, iUndelete's failure to recover all our files isn't a limitation of the program, just a reflection of the fact that our system may have already overwritten the space where the files were stored. Yes, iUndelete may be able to find your deleted files, but it makes no guarantees.

iUndelete has no time limit on its trial period, but it does prevent users from saving recovered files. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users seeking a quick and easy way to recover deleted files.
