What is the undelete boot CD

Accidentally deleted important files and the computer failed to boot? Stop your work immediately and boot from a recovery CD to maximize your chances to undelete files successfully. Don't write anything to the disk that holds the deleted files, and don't download anything from the Internet as the files you download can just overwrite the deleted data! The faster you boot your PC from recovery boot CD, the better your chances to get the files back are.

Just because your computer can't boot up Windows from your hard drive doesn't mean you can't boot it up with another operating system on another disk just long enough to undelete your important files. There are lots of boot CDs and DVDs that you can use to get your computer running long enough to undelete your files, like the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard WinPE Edition, which can help you build a undelete boot CD or USB device to undelete the lost data.

Deleted file retrieval works because the files are not really deleted, just an indication is made in the disk index that file is no longer to be accessed and the space on the disk is to be reused - the data is not actually overwritten at first.

With a undelete boot CD, you can run one of these files undelete boot CD without installing it on the disk that has the files.
