File Recovery Tips
File recovery utilities take advantage of the fact that the actions performed when emptying the Windows Recycle Bin are reversible. When a file is deleted, the operating system only changes the attribute of the space used by the file from an "occupied" status to an "available" status. The files information is hidden until it can be unlocked by a recovery utility. It is a good idea to avoid writing files to the affected drive partition to steer clear of writing over data that you wish to recover. Learn more>>
After booting from the CD/DVD you will see a Windows environment with Networking, so you can either just recover your data (copy files to a USB drive or Network drive). Many other useful utilities are included besides data recovery utility: Web Browser, File Manager, Terminal Client, Partition Manager, Task Manager, Command Prompt, etc
