    UndeletePlus lets you scan your PC, flash drives, cameras, and more for files that were accidentally deleted.

ESupport's UndeletePlus isn't free like some of its rivals, but to go along with its $40 price, you do get a full-featured recovery application that's a bit easier to use.

UndeletePlus features an attractive interface that makes it easy to get started. You can set a filter in order to search for a file by all or part of its name; the date it was modified; and its size. Then you click "Start Scan" and let the application go to work. It returns a neatly organized list of results, sorted by file type so you can easily scan through to see if your missing file is among them.

Restoring the files is easy—just a few clicks required—and the application offers helpful hints on how to recover files most effectively. UndeletePlus is user-friendly in a way that few free file recovery utilities are. Like rival Recuva, UndeletePlus managed to track down one of my two missing files, and did so quickly and easily. If only this product were free, as Recuva is, I'd be more willing to recommend it.
