Since computers are not always operated by experts or by adults, for that matter, accidents are bound to occur, and their consequences can occasionally be disastrous. When it comes to mistakenly deleted files however, there is a solution: software that specializes in file recovery, such as Undelete Plus.
Once Undelete Plus is launched, it automatically recognizes all the drives and lets the user pick the one that needs to be scanned for removed files. The destination location also needs to be specified, usually on another partition than the one currently being processed.
Even when testing the application with multiple drives, the generated are accurate. Not only will Undelete Plus locate a lot of deleted files, but it also works fast, even on very large hard disks.
Once the scan is complete, users can filter the found files by type, so as to be able to easily restore their desired items, be they photos, videos, MP3s or any other format. The status of each file is also mentioned, thus informing the user on the chances of recovery they have for each document.
Another way of filtering the results is according to their filename, size or the date of the last modification, while also hiding the temp and the overwritten files (while can no longer be restored).
The Settings window is the place where keeping the folder structure can be disabled or the Deep Scan feature can be activated. Undelete Plus can also be used to detect zero-sized files on the target drive.
The unregistered version does not allow file recovery, but when the accidentally erased files are of vital importance, purchasing a license to unlock the full powers of the software might be a smart investment.
