Restoring deleted files is a task that can be easily done nowadays, thanks to the many software solutions available and the most difficult task is to actually find a tool that really does what it’s supposed to recover files.
Recover Files is one of the utilities that promise to help you a lot in this matter, coming with all the needed features to support its goal. This program is made to bring back the files lost either by an accidental delete or those erased by viruses.
The interface is quite simple and you won’t have any difficulties when using it because all you need is a couple of clicks to operate it. Just pick the drive you wish to scan and hit the ‘Analyze’ button if you don’t have the time to get deeper into details.
If you’re a power user, on the other hand, there’s also a filter area that will enable you to search for a given filename with specified size or modified in a certain period of time. Plus, you have the option to hide temporary files and overwritten ones.
The scanning process takes just a few minutes, but this also depends on the size of the discs and the filters you have configured. The undelete process, on the other hand, depends on many factors, but it’s still great that it manages to recover the deleted files.
