Best undelete software. Everyone deletes files they shouldn't have once in a while. But it's nearly always possible to get them back. Uneraser can recover deleted files from hard drives, floppy drives and other types of storage media. It can recover files that were accidentally erased, even if you have emptied the Recycle Bin since they were deleted. A preview mode lets you see thumbnails of your files before you recover them.
Every PC needs something like this, because the sooner you act after you realize a file is lost, the better your chances of recovering it. Install a trial version of Uneraser now so it's there if you need it.
