Restoring Deleted Files and Folders

Find and select the deleted file in the Active@ UNDELETE console as described above. To restore contents of the file, execute the Undelete command using one of the following methods:

Undelete Files

  1. Click the Undelete icon on the toolbar or right-click the file, and then click Undelete from the context menu. The Browse for Folder screen appears.

  2. Select a folder on another logical or physical drive, or create a new folder for recovery. Once selected a Command Confirmation screen appears.

  3. Click Yes to restore the file. A Command Complete screen appears with a summary report naming the location of the recovered file.

  4. After the recovery process is complete, make sure that the file has been restored correctly by verifying its contents.

Drag-and-Drop / Copy-and-Paste

This method does not include the option to create a new folder. If you wish to create a new folder for recovery, use the previous method.

  1. In the left pane, locate a folder on another logical or physical drive for recovery. Expand folders using the plus sign (+) to locate a folder. If you click the actual folder, the report in the right pane will change to display the contents of the current folder.

  2. In the right pane, click the file to be recovered.

  3. Drag it to the selected recovery folder and drop it there or right-click the file and click Copy from the context menu. Right-click the recovery folder and click Paste from the context menu.

  4. After the recovery process is complete, make sure that the file has been restored correctly by verifying its contents.

    In some cases, a file can not be reliably restored, because its contents or a part of it has already been overwritten.

Restoring a Deleted Folder

Find and select a deleted folder to be restored in the Active@ UNDELETE console. A deleted folder will appear in the left pane or the right pane, depending on whether a logical drive or a sub-folder is selected. Clicking a deleted folder in the left pane will reveal nothing in the right pane.

To recursively restore the contents of the folder with files and subfolders, the process is the same as described in the previous section about restoring files. Run the Undelete command by one of the following methods:

  1. Click the folder in the left or right pane. Click the Undelete shield icon on the toolbar.

  2. Right-click the folder, then click Undelete from the context menu.

  3. Drag and Drop the selected folder to another logical drive.

  4. Copy and Paste the contents of the folder, using the Microsoft Windows clipboard (Copy command in the context menu, Copy button on the toolbar or Copy command under the Action drop-down menu) and paste file to another logical drive (Paste command in similar locations).

  5. After the recovery process is complete, make sure that the results are correct by verifying the contents of the files and subfolders.
