Easy File Undelete is a solid and thorough utility that is used for restoring files, deleted from any type of storage media imaginable. It supports recovering files from recycle bin and makes it possible to even restore shift-deleted files, those that bypass the recycle bin in the process of deletion. The programs capabilities permit scanning even the largest hard drives, without any volume limit in a relatively short time and allow restoring the maximum number of files that are still recoverable.

With over 90 file types supported, this recovery program can be called one of the most versatile undelete solutions available these days.

From the lack or response and down votes I deduce that the program is unable to recover/undelete files deleted from multisession CD/DVD/BD-ROM meadia then... and the developers have tunnel vision on their imagination.

@# fran. You cannot imagine how much, as an old (73! and pre-PC) guy, I do regret this "horrible past". In those DOS (+ early Windows) days, I was in full control of the machines I supported, through the tweaking of autoexec.bat, config.sys and (too?) various .ini files, complemented with efficient and straightforward DOS commands. These were then complemented with good ol' Norton utilities and a few Gibson ones. And, not being a programmer, I became an expert in "graphically" enhanced batch file menus, I would cook for my "happy" users, using all the line combinations DOS would offer.

"My" machines were always faster and more reliable than any off the shelf ones, given a comparable hardware configuration, hardware that was also far easier to maintain through simple drivers and good support from the companies. If, for example, one of my Brother printers would err on a certain machine, the support guy would cook me up, in less than 24h, the special driver that always solved the problem....

From XP on and especially since the "horrible" Vista, the also horrendous registry took over (the asylum?) leaving us dependent on more or less efficient and sometimes nicely "guyed" applications to achieve meager control... Mind you, whenever a utility gets a good guy wrapping, without loosing efficiency and straightforwardness, I will use the latter. One nice example that comes to my mind is the excellent ERUNT!

I tried for quite some time to register this product using the provided registration number. However, the help menu's instructions do not match the current version of the program. I called the technical support line provided by the company. It was only the sales department. They didn't even know what the product was, much less what the program did or where the registration button was actually located.

No. 26, this programme found (i presume) every deleted file on my computer, thousands of them, immediately on installation, so yes it is a "damn I deleted something lets get software to repair my mistake” programme.

There might be something amiss with the GAOTD feedback box. I'd like to see an option to place the recovered file(s), all of them in a different directory, like a massive solid state drive.

Hi, so many people recommend PhotoRec whenever Undelete/Recovery Software is offered here and I can never get this Program going. No matter which download I choose (obviously not DOS) out of Windows choice and later run exe, or right click "as Admin" - the result is always the same: Black Console asking me to to tap in DOS, or "DOS-like" Commands. Is there no Windows (friendlier) version of PhotoRec that can be used??

I know this Program is free, I wouldn't mind donating cash to support it, but - using DOS Commands remainds me of "horrible past":) when my PC was down and I tried to repair it, so no love lost there.. Thanks in advance. I'm on 7 Home Premium.

This is a strange program.

It found over 7800 deleted files on my HD but can't find a file I just deleted as a test. At the same time though it has been able to undelete any file I have selected to recover. Maybe reading the instructions will help? 8-)

Even though I have defraged the HD several times since I deleted many of the files it is still able to find and recover them.

Thank you Munsoft and GOTD for offering this program.

BTW, if you're using an SSD drive, you had better be quick with your undelete efforts, or the Trim plus garbage collection programs in the drive's firmware can do a permanent wipe in short order, perhaps tens of minutes.

Keeping your hard drive fragmentation down to a minimum helps if you need to undelete files.
Fragmentation is very high when your pagefile.sys (virtual memory) is allowed to vary its size, personally mine is always a set value, Windows NT systems are notorious for fragmentation and need no help from virtual memory.

My experience has been that the greatest impediment to restoring deleted or lost etc files has been whether they are fragmented to start with. The 'system addresses' for the parts being obliterated means they cannot be put back together by any 'undelete' software.
Only then comes how efficient 'undelete' software is.
& then how user friendly it is.
I may be wrong? Please correct me.

Also watch for FREE =>"download"<= as opposed to FREE software.

Looks ok, as far as one can test a Un-Deleter that needed a Setup first.

Is there no Portable option for this?

Actually I expect "undeleters" to offer a Portable option.

So this software is just usable for "install and idle till needed" but not for "damn I deleted something lets get software to repair my mistake".

Developer should think about this.

Just did a quick comparison and one aspect of this program that I particularly like and is not available in iCare is the function of the preview window. In this program and image is shown as an image, or a document is shown as a document etc. When you select a file this is done automatically, in iCare you have to double-click on the file to view it and it shows it in its raw state.
My update in #10, I experienced a similar situation in iCare, i.e. a supposed jpg file was a Delphi Pascal file.

Deletion of e-mails.
All my e-mail programs store on the e-mail providers servers and are not stored locally, and when deleted cannot be recovered as they never existed on my machine.

@16 Inge:

You can do this from within Outlook (I'm running 2010). First highlight the mailbox folder you want (for example your Inbox). Then on the Outlook menus at the top go to "Folder" then "Recover Deleted Items". I'm not sure how long the emails are saved before the system automatically purges them though.

Many freeware can undelete files. I used M3 data recovery software to recover files after format at: www.format-recovery.com. Thanks for GOTD.

@16, Inge: I don't think so. MS Outlook stores all mail in one pst-file. When you're deleting a mail permanently (e.g. deleting the Outlook recycle bin or shift-delete) the pst-file will not be deleted but only the address to this mail is deleted in the pst-file. So there is no deleted file for recovering. However, as long as you have not compressed the pst-file, the deleted mails can still be recovered: You can find special pst-undelete software (only for freaks: or you can damage the pst-file in a hex-editor and the built-in outlook-recover-program will restore all deleted mails by repairing the pst-file.

To Inge:
No this program, nor any recovery program, will bring back an email you delete permanently from within your email software. However, it would restore the "root" delete file and sent file, if that is where you deleted it from.

I agree with you Francis......
With the greatest respect to Ashampoo ...they do produce some excellent software .....and they also respect any "unsubscribe" request and remove you from their mailing list if you do not want mail offers and updates !

On that basis ...I have purchased various software from them ...and the mails start again eventually ...but they have the right to promote their products in the marketplace ...so its' no great hassle to "unsubscribe " again !
As you say.."Where's the problem "? At least they respect users wishes and that's fine by me !

In the description it states:

"Easy File Undelete is a solid and thorough utility that is used for restoring files, deleted from any type of storage media imaginable."

I imagine a scenario where one is using a multi-session CD/DVD/BLURAY disc and in a previous session on the disc you saved aa critical file that you decided you did not want it to be seen in the compilation so you deleted it in another session and continued writinf to the disc and may or may not have finalised the media with the two or more sessions burnt onto it... Now will this program seach for and find such cleanly deleted files that will not have their physical data blocks over written because only the session directory had been changed to reflect the deletion on un-finalised or finalised multi-session optcal media?

And, yes, since I gave Ashampoo my mail address (which so many people resent in these comments), a long time ago, I do receive quite a lot of mails from them. Where's the problem? It's usually a delete, unread, and if I really got tired of them, I could just opt out from Ashampoo's mailing list

@#2, Wolf. Your link to the Ashampoo site works correctly, but then: no undeleter to be found (any more?) on the site. Anyway, it apparently never was freeware! In their rather recent review, PC Advisor says it costs £9.99!

http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/software/3331795/ashampoo-undeleter-review/
I then downloaded it for "free" from

http://www.download.hr/download-ashampoo-undeleter.html
and, indeed, the download was, of course, quite "free" (aren't they all?), but once installed it appeared to be the ubiquitous "trial" version and I had to register with Ashampoo to get a "40 days free full version trial" key which, indeed, was promised to be "100% FREE and without obligations!". Are we being funny or do I sense some "mind-fogging" here ;-). BTW, I do have quite a lot of registered full versions of Ashampoo software from various "Giveaways" and am quite happy with them...

Thanks for fixing the links giveaway team.

I tested today's giveaway and was pleased with the results. I've only deleted several programs since formatting and reinstalling the operating system and everything was recovered in perfect condition.

Thank you to Munsoft for giving this away and to the giveaway team for providing this brilliant service (the first to do so in a safe environment as far as I'm aware). I'm going to test Easy File Undelete further before deciding whether to purchase a license.

I've been wanting to install an undelete program as I've recently installed Win 8 and have lost all of my previous giveaways from the past five years. It's always useful to have the option to recover something you thought you didn't need then discovered it was needed. :)

As for losing all of my giveaways, that's not meant as a whinge, it was expected. I always purchased programs that I've first got from the giveaway site that I've found really useful; but as yet had been undecided on any undelete/recovery programs offered since first visiting the giveaway site over six years ago (Nov 2006) - the last one I purchased way back in 2005 was useless.

Definitely a thumbs up from me. :D

A quick update on my previous comment; an interesting result, a file found under documents had the extension of a video file that is AVI, the preview showed it was a document file.
When recovered the file name had the extension of AVI, and to be viewed had to have the extension changed.
Why this should happen I have no idea, possibly a bug, one that could cause less experienced users some problems.

In spite of this I still like the program!

I have downloaded and installed the program on my Windows 8 64-bit machine.

Then I deleted the 3 files (readme.txt, Setup.exe and Setup.gcd) in the folder EasyFileUndelete.

I also deleted 5 pictures in various formats and 2 text files.
The 3 pictures I deleted permanently with SHIFT+DEL and the other 2 via Recyled bin.

Great was my surprise when the program showed a very large amount of deleted files which I do not know anything about, but NONE of them I had just deleted as described above were found. I rebooted my machine and tried again, but none of my recently deleted files were found.

Although the program is offered cheap I do not buy it.

Installed program - deleted a WAV file from the recycle bin; ran the program against the recycle bin - nothing found.

Deleted an MS Excel file from the recycle bin; ran the program against the recycle bin - nothing found.

Useless program, in my opinion...

A quick test of the program using fast search was most impressive in its ease-of-use and speed of search.
When it has finished it attempts to sort the programs into file types, documents, images etc, in the left-hand panel.
When one of the above is selected it lists the files, when a file is selected a preview is shown in the lower panel.

A really nice piece of software and most definitely a keeper.
