Recover files and folders
Select files in a view
Select files in any view mentioned above using cursor selection (Use Shift or Ctrl keys for mutli-selection).
Open File recovery dialog
After files are selected in a view, click Recover button in view's toolbar or use Recover command from context menu or use Ctrl+R shortcut.
Confirm recovery location
By default File recovery dialog appears in simplified form - in most of the cases default recovery settings are sufficient for file recovery. However, to use advanced options click More Recovery Options button.
Enter destination path where file will be recovered and click Recover button.
- Use original file names
- Names of detected files will be preserved only if no file with the same name already exists in the destination directory.
- Rename files
- All files will be renamed by their given specified file root name and added enumeration ID. File extensions remain intact.
Existing files conflict resolution
- Unique file name
- If a file with the same name exists in the destination folder, a file with a unique name will be generated to avoid overwriting.
- Ask before overwrite
- If a file with the same name already exists in the destination folder, the application will ask the user for a specific action to take.
- Overwrite without prompt
- All files will be overwritten in the event if they already exist in the destination folder.
- Skip existing files
- If a file with the same name exists in the destination folder, recovery of a new file will be skipped.
- Create Folder Structure
- When this option is selected files will be recovered with their original folder structures e.g. original folder hierarchy as it was on the storage source. In case files were organized in groups (date, file extensions, or by an associated application) then such groupings will be created by the folder structure in the location where the files will be recovered to.
- Recover Name Streams
- With this option on, files will be recovered with their original name streams.
- Browse destination folder
- Opens the destination folder in the default OS file browser.

- Use Disk Lock
- The source disk will be locked during the file recovery process. It will be unlocked as soon as the process is completed.
- Ignore Disk Lock Errors
- With this option on, the file recovery process will continue even if locking of the source device fails.
- Ignore Write Errors
- No error messages will appear and all write errors will be ignored during the recovery process.
