How many times did you delete some files on your hard disk by mistake? And if you are like me, how many times did you use the Shift+Del keys combination to avoid the Recycle Bin? I’m using that all the time, and there were a few times when I was sorry to discover that in my rush of cleaning my hard disk, I deleted things that I actually needed.

If you didn’t know by now, find out that there are possibilities for you to bring those files back. One of these possibilities is Handy Recovery. This is a data recovery software designed to restore files accidentally deleted from hard disks. It also works on memory cards. Handy Recovery can also perform other things such as recover files damaged by virus attacks, power failures and software faults or files from deleted and formatted partitions. If you use to skip the Recycle Bin when deleting files, you can bring them back with this software.

The operating systems which support Handy Recovery are: Microsoft Windows 9x/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista. The program supports all Windows file systems for hard and floppy drives including FAT12/16/32, NTFS/NTFS 5. It also performs image recovery from CompactFlash, SmartMedia, MultiMedia and Secure Digital memory cards. Moreover, it can recover compressed and encrypted files on NTFS drives, or data from formatted partitions. I don’t know if it also works on a Wireless Hard Drive, but I suppose it should make no difference from common drives.

The data recovery software is easy to use, its interface is intuitive and it has search and filtering possibilities. In case you are not sure anymore which of the deleted files you want to recover, you can use the file preview function to see what each file contains.

Handy Recovery comes with 30 days trial period. During this period, you can recover only one file per day, but it should be enough for you to decide whether or not the software does its job properly.
