The Benefits of Using Free Undelete Software for Recovering Files

Using Free Undelete Software for Recovering Files

There are occasions when we all lose files through accidentally deleting them, and attempting to recover them can be a time-consuming and exasperating business. Free Undelete v2.1, is a file recovery tool which allows users to undelete files from both internal and external hard drives, flash drives, memory cards and other types of storage devices.

Why Program Interface Is Important?

The program interface is very user-friendly, but fortunately it is not lacking in all the features you need. If you have tried other file recovery tools but have found them to be difficult to understand or confusing, you should be pleasantly surprised with Free Undelete. Not only is the interface minimal and clean, but all the buttons are easily accessible and the results are very simple to sift through.

In summary:

  • It runs on Windows 7, 8, XP, Vista, and 2000, besides Windows Server 2003 and 2008
  • This software is able to scan for deleted files on both FAT and NTFS drives, which are two of the most popular file systems currently in use.
  • The search tool allows you to filter the results instantly to show files/folders of a particular extension or name only.
  • The results can be sorted under the file name, extension, size, folder, date of modification, date of creation, and recoverability status.


  • Very easy and simple to use
  • Small download size (less than 1 MB)
  • Can restore whole folders of files
  • Displays the results in a recognisable folder structure
  • Can restore multiple files and folders in one go
  • Displays the recoverability status of the deleted files
  • Is a portable option


There only appears to be one disadvantage, which is that it is not free for business use, only for home/non-commercial use.

Some files found by data recovery programs will not be completely recoverable, so they will not necessarily open properly or work as you would expect once you have restored them. The great thing about Free Undelete is that it tells you the recoverability status of each of the files before you undelete them. This will save you a lot of wasted time and effort in restoring a large number of files, only to discover that none of them work.
