utilities to recover the shift deleted files

All of a sudden you encounter a situation wherein you either knowingly or unknowingly but unfortunately happened to lose some of your files in the OS permanently. I could have better named it as ‘permanently deleted files’ rather than ‘shift deleted files’. But just to match with the naive user’s search query, i have termed it as such! That’s how generally people may search for it.

Day before yesterday one of my buddies faced a scenario and was feeling bad that he had lost his 6 hours of work because of an accidental shift+delete by his colleague.Not to blame anyone but the situation, he had not have the back up of the files as well. Suddenly i remembered that a couple of years back one of my ex-colleagues had sent a mail about such software utility but it was mainly to recover the mails from Microsoft Outlook exchange doing something with Registry.

With the thought, i had mailed my buddies and asked for a solution if they had also faced this situation. A couple of good responses i have got. Just Listing them here. Hope it would be of some use to the people in need! It is mainly for Windows OS as my requirement was for that.

Prior to this mailing attempt, got suggested by my colleage about one utility called ‘GetDataBack’. What a beautiful name? 🙂 You would never forget it! But as it was a shareware(!), i was able to just see the list of files got deleted but could not proceed further in retrieving the files as it was saying “copying of files is only allowed in premium edition” :). 

NOTE: Please make use at your own risk. Kindly go through the notes/documentation given in the software/crack.

Here you go….

(i) Please try this link http://www.winundelete.com/?rid=google&kid=wu0801 for getting the deleted files.

(ii) http://www.safe-install.com/programs/fat-deleted-data-recovery.html
http://shift-del-deleted-recovery.safe-install.com/ [FAT system]

(iii) http://pcwin.com/Utilities/Windows_Partition_Data_Recovery_Software/index.htm

(iv) try the software ‘undelete’..definitely it helps..i have recovered many files using it myself..espicially .jpg and .txt files..my java code resides on repository..i hope he lost it before commit:)

well, windows xp with FAT? first he should change to NTFS..
btw, how did he delete it? using a tool like eclipse? or from explorer?

(v) http://www.sharewareconnection.com/titles/shift-del-deleted-recovery.htm

(vi) I think i have used recovermyfiles.exe… i think its available in the net.. u can download and try..

(vii) http://www.quetek.com/prod02.htm?source=google15 [I got it through Google webclip when i was replying to this mail thread!]

(vii) Get data back , Data recovery [names of the software]

(viii) As i do not have a portable media, I am giving you the link from where it can be downloaded. Before installation disable Internet connection and Anti virus Programs because we use a Key gen to activate the software.


This gives a success rate of 65% for all the files. This is not file recovery software. It recovers Entire partition. So make sure u select the appropriate file types you want to recover in order to speed up the process. It works well for all the types of windows file systems.

Please do share this with all the folks you know.

Beware… n take care too!

All the very best! 🙂

I thank all my  buddies who have responded in time! 🙂

    Hey Raghs,

    Useful post! And now to answer your question in my blog, you can download the songs from the movie Polladhavan from youtube. Apparently, there is a utility called youtube to MP3 converter. Try googling for it.

    Have fun!

    You should NOT have necessarily installed the program as you might not have thought/predicted about the corruption of files. You can try installing it now. But be aware of what you do. Good luck.

    Shift deleted file recovery is best done by utilizing Remo Recover. This
    comes with additional features which let you perform the task in just a
    few minutes.
