Undelete is the method of recovering and restoring accidentally deleted or lost data from different type of storage devices like hard drives, flash memory cards, USB external drives, FireWire drives, etc. When a file is deleted from your hard drive using Windows Explorer, the entry in the file allocation table is deleted and the deleted file is designated as being situated in the Recycle Bin directory. Actually, file is removed from the root directory of partition and renamed therefore, the file is not visible in the partition from where you have deleted the file.
For instance, consider you have deleted a file called myfile.txt from hard drive and it is residing in the Recycle Bin of Windows OS. After deleting this file, it renames like Dc1.txt. The original location and name of the file has stored in hidden index file, which names as INFO. This hidden index file situates in the root directory of Recycle Bin. The INFO file is very important, when you want to restore accidentally deleted file back to hard drive. Because, INFO file allows deleted files to be automatically restored to its original location. While restoring deleted files from Recycle Bin, the original path can be retrieved from the INFO file, then the file is renamed and restored back to its original name and path.
Recycle Bin is not able to store deleted files in some circumstances like deletion of file using Shift+ Del keys, deletion of files from removable storage devices, etc. In these cases, the deleted file bypasses the Recycle Bin resulting in data loss. If the size of deleted file is larger than the Recycle Bin size, then also Recycle bin does not store the file, instead it bypasses the Recycle Bin. The earlier versions of Microsoft Operating systems like MS-DOS 5.0 to MS-DOS6.2 were able to restore deleted files using UNDELETE command. But, if you are using other improved versions of Windows like Win 95, Win 98, Win NT, Win XP, Win 7 and Win Vista then UNDELETE command does not restore any deleted data. If you want to recover lost or deleted data from these Operating systems, then you need to use third party recovery tool such as My Undelete.
If you have already taken backup, then no need to worry because, you can restore deleted data from backup file. If backup file is not available then you need to utilize My Undelete tool to recover deleted data from system hard drive along with other drive types like IDE / ATA / SATA / SCSI with ease. If you want to recuperate lost or deleted data by making the use of this tool, then you should not copy or save new data over affected hard drive to avoid permanent data loss.
