Undelete® software allows users to easily recover deleted files, reducing IT helpdesk cost

Every IT manager assigned the task of data protection has received many panic calls asking them to recover a deleted file or one that has been "saved over" or overwritten. These panic calls come almost always after the user themselves has spent precious time, sometimes hours, searching their system for the file.

Users are often misguided when putting their confidence in the recycle bin, which is standard on most computers, to recover a deleted file. The recycle bin is actually no protection at all when compared to the available undelete software on the market today, and large networked systems can be especially vulnerable if there is no recovery resources installed on the system.

According to Diskeeper® Corporation there are a good number of Fortune 500 companies which are loosing thousands on a daily basis due to accidental deletions; and it is estimated that deletions, accidental or not, cost the U.S. economy tens of billions of dollars annually.

Certainly, data protection software has been around for a long time now, but a casual survey of almost any group of computer users will show that virtually no one has such software installed on their systems. And, this is even the case with big networks, where the value of a lost document could mean serious dollars lost.

Higher end undelete software creates a number of defenses -- not unlike the walls of a castle -- which make it very difficult to "accidentally" delete any type of data permanently.

Diskeeper Corporation developed Undelete® to deal with these circumstances as a continuous data protection solution. Undelete replaces the Windows recycle bin with its own more powerful "Recovery Bin" that intercepts all deleted files, regardless of size, location and how they were deleted, or who did so.

Undelete's Server, Professional, and Client editions can access recovery bins on remote systems running Undelete Server Edition eliminating the torturous task of searching through a server's backup tapes to recover files deleted by a network user. Primary and extended partitions, volume sets, mirror sets, and RAID arrays all are supported. All editions are compatible with the latest service packs for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003TM.

To simplify deployment and maximize valuable IT resources, Undelete incorporates a push install feature that allows Professional, Server, and Desktop Client editions to be installed to selected workstations and servers throughout the network. The elimination of hands-on visits to each system is a major factor in cost justification.

Getting a good data protection solution isn't something that should be thought about after it's too late. Using Undelete as your data protection plan will help ensure your files and business are protected from permanent "deletion" and users can recover deleted files on their own without having to involve helpdesk or other IT staff.
