Can anyone help? Using Windows Commander I accidentally deleted a file using the F8 key and not to the recycle bin.Now I have realised I deleted the wrong file. Can I get it back? If so how, with what and where can I obtain the software to do it?

Thanks macs


With the old program undelete (it was part of dos(dunno you can still find it in win98)

restart into dos-modus(I’m not sure this can be done in a dos-prompt under windows) lock your hard drive (c:\lock c: or what ever drive it is on) and then use the command undelete(undelete filename). It will ask you to enter the first character of the file since only this character is changed(0 to 1 or 1 to 0).

This works for me sometimes.

Good luck,


undelete was deleted from command list whe 95 came out
