File Recovery

IT professionals face the challenge of protecting critical business data. Yet there are substantial gaps in using conventional methodology of backup systems. Traditionally, the only way to recover a file has been from backup, a time-consuming chore that can only restore a file if it existed at the time of the last backup.


If the last snapshot was taken at 9am and the file had not yet been created, you’re out of luck. As you can see, this leaves a major hole in your data protection. But it doesn’t stop there. If a file is deleted or overwritten on a network drive, the Windows recycle bin will not catch it.

Accidental deletions and file overwrites happen all the time and they can cost your company a lot of time and money.

Why leave your organization vulnerable to data loss, when there is an easy solution that is specifically designed to provide true continuous data protection and instant, pain-free file recovery?

Undelete: The File Server Recycle Bin

When it comes to data protection for your organization, traditional methods simply don’t provide complete protection. You’re still vulnerable to accidental deletions or overwrites that can cost your organization time and money.

Undelete® continuous data protection surpasses the occasional data protection provided by Windows Volume Shadow Copies, removing all gaps from your data protection strategy to ensure data is never lost. By protecting all files, local and network, and enabling instant recovery, Undelete is the first line of defense before backup to ensure true continuous data protection and easy recovery of lost or overwritten files.

Without Undelete, sys admins recover files by digging through backups, hoping no corruption or coverage gap made the file unrecoverable. Backups are designed for catastrophic data loss but are impractical for file-by-file recovery.

Instant Recovery of Lost or Overwritten Files

Undelete changes all that. It provides a cost-effective, instant recovery solution that completes a company’s overall data protection strategy and eliminates the inefficiency of digging through backups.

Undelete safely replaces the Windows recycle bin with a recovery bin that captures all deleted or overwritten files—even those deleted from network drives. And, unlike Volume Shadow Copy (VSS), Undelete works in real-time, capturing every file version, so files can be recovered instantly in the same state they were at the exact time they were deleted.

Rather than relying on your help desk to come to the rescue every time a file is lost, Undelete allows users to restore their own deleted or overwritten files with the Undelete Desktop Client (10 licenses included with each Undelete Server purchase) or Professional licenses installed on their desktops.

Undelete provides a vigilant, transparent shield of protection that no file server should ever be without.

“Undelete is undoubtedly worth every penny. It has saved our helpdesk numerous hours in restoring files inadvertently deleted as opposed to having to restore from backups.”
– Michael Lucas, Gancom (Division of Gannet Fleming)

“Undelete is invaluable to our organization. Our users love the ability to restore/replace what has accidentally been deleted in a matter of minutes, rather than waiting hours for backups to be delivered from an offsite storage facility.”
– Robert Segui, Network Administrator Freeman Company

What People are Saying

“Typically, IT professionals respond to application performance issues by reactively buying more hardware. Without the luxury of a padded budget, we needed to find a way to improve performance on the hardware infrastructure we already have. It saved us from having to make a heavy investment in SSDs or do a complete rip and replace of our entire hardware infrastructure. To this day, I still can’t believe software is doing this.”
R. Ortiz, IT Manager, ASL Marketing

“I have used Diskeeper since it was first introduced. It has always worked well in keeping my drive defragged for the fastest response times for all of my apps. Thank you again for this fine piece of software.”
Philip Baldwin, NVQB

has saved our Techs numerous hours in restoring files inadvertently deleted as opposed to having to
restore from backup tape.”
Michael Lucas, Gancom (Division of Gannet Fleming)

“Undelete saves backup restores when someone accidentally deletes a file from a Windows share. We store tapes off site so Undelete can save a big delay for file restores of that type. Undelete does what it says on the box – really – and it works nicely as a network recycle bin.”
Glenn Edwards, Infrastructure Analyst, Itron
