Installation Notes

NEVER install any software or write any data on the disk where lost data resides! Or you may damage or even completely lose the data.

See the Data Recovery Issues topic for details.

If the lost data resides on your system disk (usually C:):

Create a portable version.

You may create a portable version on any removable media. When installing R-Undelete, select Create portable version on the R-Undelete installation wizard and specify the device with removable storage.

R-Undelete portable is installed in the R-Undelete folder in the device root. Also the autorun.inf file is created and any time the device is connected, R-Undelete will start automatically. If you do not want that, simply delete the autorun.inf file from the device and start R-Undelete portable by launch the r-undelete.exe from the R-Undelete folder.

Use another computer

1. Install R-Undelete on a second computer.

2. Disconnect the hard drive with the lost data from the computer where it has been hosted (the primary computer).

3. Connect the hard drive to the second computer. You may connect it as a second hard drive or use an HDD-to-USB 2.0 adapter.

4. Run R-Undelete on the second computer and recover the data.

Now you may reconnect the hard drive to the first computer.
