Recover files

By hanifaso ·
I am using Windows 98 and I mistakenly delete some files in my local hard disk and also clean up the recycle bin. However can I recover those deleted files back to my hard disk?

Use Noton Utilities or Undelete, I think that's your only way to do it yourself.

Norton Utilities UnErase or OnTrack Fix-It File Undeleter.

The reason I am also posting an answer is because to inform you of the following warning:

Deleted files are still stored on the disk, but because they are marked for deletion, the OS may write over them, making recovery impossible. Therefore, the best two things that you can do in this case are:
1. Try not to do any further activity on your PC, until you undelete the deleted files ,as all activities cause (temp) files to be written to the hard drive.

2. If you purchase a program to undelete files, DO NOT install it, but start the Undelete program from the CD or Floppy. Installing it would copy many new files to the hard drive, and increase the chance that the deleted files are written over, making recovery impossible!
After you have undeleted the files, you can safetly install the utility software, and the next time this happens, you can start the software from the hard drive.
