Ontrack EasyRecovery Professional always helps me out, when I get myself in that situation.

If you're using w98 the best is to shutdown or even pull the power cable (cos on shutdown win writes stuff to disk that can overwrite your deleted files) The boot from a floppy or a cd and type "lock" and answer yes. Then use undelete in your recycled directory, which is hidden. I like to use norton's unerase for dos. Got it from some old norton utilities version. When you're using ntfs partitions you can forget about this type of recovering.

Does anyone know where you can find the files, when you get a word document in a mail and select open it when clicking on it. Then you do some editing and after a while you close the file and word asks you to save it and you select yes, but the mail program deletes it after the program (word) is closed. It should be in c:\windows\temp directory, but if I undeleted I couldn't find anything of use. Now I selected make backup copies in word and my computer is full of *.wbk files. 8). Any idea how to hide them? Thnx

There are two excellent Commerical programs that I'm aware of that will solve your problem: Mijenix SystemSuite or Norton SystemWorks. The Mijenix title is much better for undeleting. Norton's UnErase treats users like idiots and searches all their drives and then lists every file every deleted that's no longer in the recycle bin. The SystemSuite Version will let you specify which drives to search (much faster) and what filespec to display for example *.doc for word documents (much easier to locate your deleted file). You might try tucows.com for a freeware alternative, but really you can pick up a good copy of SystemSuite 3.0 for about 5-10 bucks so who cares if it costs a little. For that Try Ebay or Half.com.
Good Luck,

Norton System works will do the trick, but as others have hinted at---it sucks. I refuse to install Systemworks on any of my PCs ever again because it ends up "fixing" things that are fine. If you just need an undelete util, NSW is a waste (well...it kinda is to begin with)

[censored] DataRecoveryWizard utility can help. Speaking about me, it was
easily able to restore deleted, lost file and unformat drive,
so I think you will also find it quite useful. Really recommended
tool, give it a try.

A number of programs exist. Recuva comes to mind, but I think I have at least a half dozen, all freeware. Try Google, or another and search for "Windows freeware" and the try "Disk utilities" or files or whatever seems appropriate.

Yes, there are always methods to get your lost files back. So how to recover lost file from a Mac? Here brings you two normal ways which are used in our daily lives.
1. Utilize Local Backup Program in your Mac
Mac machines purchased after November 2007 are installed with the Leopard operating system. One of the most important utilities of the Mac OS is Time Machine. This complete backup tool can backup almost anything and everything on a Mac every hour with its unique features. Once you deleted or lost your critical files, just enter your Time Machine browser, and you can undelete Mac files from Time Machine backup. Besides Time Machine, there are other programs on Mac such as Backup which allows you to undelete Mac files. In Backup, you simply select a plan for backup and find the files you want to undelete.
2. The third-party Mac File Recovery software
If Time Machine and other backup programs on your Mac cannot help you undelete Mac files, you can use third party software to undelete Mac files. There are various Mac undelete files programs (both free software and paid versions) on the current market. If these Mac files are really important for you, you should use professional one. uFlysoft Data Recovery for Mac can undelete Mac files deleted accidentally or intentionally, even deleted by emptying Trash. It can undelete documents, archives, images, videos, songs from Mac machine, USB drive, digital camera, iPod, cell phone, MP3 or MP4 player and other storage media.

It’s happened to us all, we’ve emptied the recycle bin on our laptop or PC, only to discover – too late – that an important file or folder was in there and has been erased by mistake! It could be some photos, an important document or anything at all. The key detail, is that it’s been deleted twice – once from your files and secondly from your recycle bin.
