NTFS Undelete- Recover Deleted Files on a NTFS File System

I came across a freeware- NTFS Undelete which allows you to recover deleted files. It recovers files directly from hard drive, and it will work even if you empty the Recycle Bin. It will not only recovers deleted and erased files from an NTFS file system but it also recovers from other file systems like FAT and FAT32.

Before using this software you need to know that whenever you delete a file, its content physically remains intact on the media, but the occupied space becomes marked as free. Now whenever you save a new file, it may overwrite the contents of the deleted file. So, once you realize that you have a deleted a particular and you want to recover it then make sure that no application writes to the partition where the deleted file is located since every new file (even a small one) may overwrite the deleted file.

The software is pretty user friendly. You have three tabs- browse, search, and recover marked files. On the left hand side you can select the location you want to perform a search. After a detailed search the software displays a list of deleted files. Under the ‘recover marked files’ tab you can recover the ones you need.

You can also have a look at other free recovery softwares like DiskDigger and Recuva.
