If you have ever accidentally deleted files from your recycle bin – stick around! Companies get rich from offering recovery service and/or expensive software to recover from our boo boos.

Now comes an undelete program that PC World Magazine rated “Very Good” that you can use to recover those deleted files in the blink of an eye. When you read the help file you will find that there are a couple of technical issues to be aware of, but the program looks a bit like Windows Explorer making it relatively easy to navigate.
