Free undelete tool/program to recover deleted files under Windows 7/Vista

Free undelete tool for Windows 7/Vista

Undelete is a feature for restoring computer files which have been removed from a file system by file deletion. Deleted data can be recovered on many file systems, but not all file systems provide an undeletion feature. The Windows 7/Vista undeletion facility is usually called undelete tool or undelete program.

When a file is deleted on a FAT file system, its directory entry remains stored on the disk, slightly renamed in a way that marks the entry in FAT table as available for use by newly created files thereafter. Most of its name, and its time stamp, file length and - most importantly - location on the disk; remain unchanged in the directory entry. The list of disk clusters occupied by the file will be erased from the File Allocation Table, however, marking those sectors available for use by other files created or modified thereafter.

If you have accidentally deleted the important files in Windows7/Vista and now need to get them back, standard FAT recovery utilities can be used to recover them. And free undelete tool under Windows Vista/7 can recover the files which could not be accessed normally.
