NTFS Undelete tutorial 1 – Installation
If you have deleted a file from your computer, it may be possible to recover it again, even after emptying the Recycle Bin. Of course, tools like NTFS Undelete are no substitute for a proper backup strategy and cannot always recover files, especially if you have saved or modified other files on your disk in the meantime.
Please exercise caution before installing this software!
Note that if you need to recover an important file from your PC’s system (usually the C:) drive, then you should stop using your computer and instead use a different machine to download and record the ISO (CD) image version of the software. Once recorded, the CD can be used safely on your target machine. The CD version will work outside of Windows without the risk of any new files overwriting your recently deleted file. The ISO version of NTFS Undelete is available from the softwares download page here. For tutiorials on how to record an ISO image to a CD, see this page. If your file is on another drive or an external device, such as a memory stick, then you can proceed with this tutorial and use the Windows version of the software.
