DataRecovery File Undeleter for Windows

July 6, 2007

The DataRecovery Application

This ultralight utility lets you recover files which have been unintentionally deleted. It works with all versions of Windows from 9x to Vista, and supports FAT and NTFS file systems.

The program makes no entries in the Windows registry, has no external data files, and doesn’t need an installer or setup. As a self contained program, DataRecovery itself virtually no footprint on your system. Just download it and double click on DataRecovery.exe. That’s very good because in a data recovery scenario you want to keep the lost file intact. Downloading a new program onto the computer and running its installer might cause the data you’re trying to recover to be over written.

I have used this program to successfully recover files on Windows 2000 and XP. The interface is ugly, but like all great utilities it is simple and functional. As with any data recovery scenario, there is no guarantee of success. Depending on how quickly you act, your file may not be recoverable.

Put DataRecovery.exe on your USB thumb drive, or your emergency utility CD. That way you have the best chance of recovering your files. I have added DataRecovery to my PortableApps menu by unzipping it to a subfolder of my PortableApps folder. Nobody is perfect, and even the pros experience data loss sometimes; only a real pro learns how to cope with it when it happens.
