1 @ @ @================== All About ========= DataRecovery is freeware and written by TOKIWA to undelete accidentally deleted files even from recycle bin. But DataRecovery doesn't assure that all files deleted can be recovered success fully. It mostly depends on your system/configuration and we can't support each of all those varieties. Compatible operating systems ============================ Windows9x/Me/NT4.0/2000/XP/2003/Vista Key-features ============ 1 FAT12,FAT16,FAT32,NTFS undeletion 2 undelete NTFS compressed files 3 undelete EFS encrypted files 4 wipe out deleted files never to be recovered again(NEW) 5 runnable from floppy disk 6 search by partial string in the file name 7 undelete whole files in a directory 8 undelete multiple files by selecting them with Shift/Ctrl key 9 sort items displayed by clicking column headers 10 neither installation nor DLLs is needed 11 Windows Vista supported How to use ========== You can understand it intuitively through simple UI. So there is no need for in structions. Also you can update DataRecovery to new version if available through "Version i nfo" of system menu(NT only). Notice ====== 1 You need "administrator account" to run DataRecovery at WinNT/2000/XP/Vista. 2 To wipe out deleted files, DataRecovery directly write NULL to disc. 3 On fat volume, first character of the file name is sometimes overwritten by d elete-code on deletion. In that case the lost character is replaced by "$" on the list displayed. 4 When you get "Runtime Error" on scanning drive, try Debug version. 5 Norton UnErase keeps DataRecovery from scanning deleted files. 6 On Windows Vista, Never to destroy OS, you can Not wipe files in system drive . 7 "Full scan" for NTFS is effective in such a case where you quick-formatted dr ives. But this would take long time, so try it only when you could not find wanted f iles through normal scan. Install/Un-install ================== DataRecovery doesn't need to be installed. Just unpack the archive you download ed and it's runnable. DataRecovery doesn't install anything, so no registry entries or initialization

files are left on your computer when you delete the directory of DataRecovery File Attributes =============== R:read-only H:hidden S:system D:directory A:archive N:normal(no other attributes are set) T:temporary O:offline C:compressed E:encrypted Rp:reparse point I:index view Sp:sparse file License ======= Copyright(C)2007, TOKIWA All rights reserved.
