Pandora Recovery is a freeware tool that lets you recover deleted files and folder from your Windows operating system. Puran File Recovery and Recuva are another free software, which finds and restore deleted files from your computer.
Pandora Recovery is able to recover deleted files from NTFS and FAT-formatted volumes. It scans your hard drive and rebuilds an index of existing and deleted files and directories (folders) on any logical drive of your computer with supported file format. Once the scanning is completed, you can select from files, which you want to recover.
Once scanning is completed, Pandora Recovery allows you to preview the deleted files, without performing recovery. It is good if you have less free space in your hard-disk. You can preview several image file types (BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, ICO,TIF, TGA, PCX, WBMP, WMF, JP2, J2K, JBG, JPC, PGX, PNM, RAS, CUR) and several text file types (TXT, LOG, INI, BAT, RTF, XML, CSS).
Pandora Recovery can recover not only ‘regular’ files, but is also able to recover archived, hidden, system, sparse, encrypted and compressed files. Encrypted and compressed files will be color-coded once drive indexing has been completed. Names of the encrypted files will be displayed in GREEN, while compressed files will be BLUE.
This tool also allows you to search for unspecified deleted images or movies with common file extensions:
– *.avi, *.mpg, *.mov for video
– *.bmp, *.jpg, *.png, *.gif for images
This free tool is currently compatible with Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2003 and Windows 2000. You can download Pandora Recovery from here.
