Scans the hard drive for specific locations to recover files that have been deleted or lost because of accidents. Supports hard disks that have been formatted. Includes support for various file systems (NTFS, ReFS, FAT/FAT32, exFAT, HFS+, Ext2/Ext3/Ext4, UFS, XFS, JFS)

Active@ UNDELETE is a feature-rich file recovery utility that provides you with a quick way to restore data from deleted, lost or damaged partitions. This program is compatible with various types of data storage containers, helps you recover all sorts of files, and gives you access to multiple disk management features.

All of its built-in tools are listed on the left side of the interface. Simply choose the type of task you wish to complete and the program will get the job done. The developer lets you choose between 3 types of program licenses to meet the needs of both small and large companies. The prices are quite affordable if you compare them with amounts of money you would pay for other file recovery tools.

At first glance, the tool might seem a bit difficult to handle due to the multitude of built-in utilities and buttons. However, once you work a little with the program and check the integrated help manual, you will be able to use the utility a lot quicker and easier.

The only thing that bothers me is that you cannot test all of the integrated tools while using the trial version of the program. For example, you cannot restore a deleted partition, create a virtual RAID assembly, use the File Organizer tool, etc. Still, you can use the program to see if it manages to restore files and, in my testing, it really got the job done.

Hence, you should give this tool a shot if you need to quickly restore files from deleted or damaged partitions. It's effective, works 100%, and comes with a fair price.
