A free, open source file recovery tool for Windows.
Kickass Undelete is a free, fully featured, file recovery tool for Windows. Accidentally deleted a file? Never fear; the data is probably still on your drive and may be recoverable. Kickass Undelete finds all of the deleted files on your hard drive, flash drive or SD card and allows you to recover them.
- Free and Open Source
- Support for both NTFS and FAT filesystems
- Filter by filename and extension
- Easy-to-use interface
- Unreasonably large scan button
I have a SanDisk Compact Flash card reader attached by USB to my laptop. Windows 7 Enterprise runs chkdsk f: just fine, but the Kickass program kept the F: grayed out, so I could not run the tool on the CF card.
kickassundelete is fast and stable
Stable and works.
Does work on some files. Not quite "there" yet. Would crash on certain files. I had better luck with Recuva. Should also warn users to recover to a different drive and not the same drive.
A piece of "crippleware" I used, successfully recovered 3 files before it "expired", which is why I tried this. It crashed a few times, before I figured out it was choking on one particular file. It APPEARED to have recovered several files I wanted, but I was unable to open any of them. Very disappointing. :( (Windows XP SP3) The search continues...
