How do I undelete a file in Windows 98?

By vgp0001 ·
I accidently deleted a .pst file and also emptied my Recycle Bin. How can I recover it without using a utility? Or is there a freeware utility for file recovery?

As far as I know nothing comes with Win98 to undelete a file. You can try older DOS versions (not what came with Win9. There was undelete.exe there. But it may not work with FAT32. Other than that you would have to find somebody with Norton Utilities and create a rescue disk. Then you will be able to undelete a file. If you installed anything on your computer since the deletion, chances of a good recovery are very slim.

Cross your fingers and wish for a tornado to take you away. The dos undlete program will only work if you have a FAT (or FAT16) drive, or if you deleted it in DOS. I don't know of any shareware or for that matter freeware programs.

let me know how it goes.

Good luck.

(P.S. Don't save ANYTHING to the harddisk, you might overwrite the clusters that contain the file)
