As the name implies, Restoration is a file restoration program. This one seems to work really well on my XP system. It is simple to use, and also gives you the option to really delete files, that is, destroy them so that simple undelete programs like this one cannot restore them. ( Experts with specilized software might
still be able to retrieve data after you use the "delete completely" option).
From the Download site:
"Restoration is an easy to use and straight forward tool to undelete files
that were removed from the recycle bin or directly deleted from within
Windows. Upon start, you can scan for all files that may be recovered and
also limit the results by entering a search term or extension. In
addition, it also provides the option to wipe the found files beyond
simple recovery. The program is small and standalone, it does not require
installation and can also run from a Floppy disk. Restoration works with
FAT and NTFS as well as digital cameras cards. "
