Active Undelete is designed to explore and browse all data storage devices on your computer in different ways to find and recover lost data. All information in the application is organized in tabbed views that provide easy access to information for different purposes.

After you can see partitions on a device, the file recovery process consists of stages:

  • Scan a Logical Drive
  • Analyze Logical Drive scan results
  • Use Recovery Explorer
  • Use Document View
  • Search for deleted Files and Folders
  • Filtering Files and Folders in Recovery Explorer
  • Recover deleted files and folders

After you have completed a device scan, a Scan Results branch appears in the Recovery Explorer tree. Detected partitions are listed in order of their certainty.
There are 12 attributes that define a partition. In some cases, the application cannot be certain that the found item actually is a partition. The rating in the order of certainty depends on how many attributes are found and what condition they are in.

You may perform the following actions on partitions in the Scan Results branch:

  • Stop and Resume a Scan
  • Save and Load Scan Results
  • Restore Scan Results
