Whenever you send a file to the Recycle Bin, bits of it still remain in your computer. While you don't see them, they can be restored using the proper software solution.
One of them is File Plucker. It's a useful application that helps scan your system and retrieve all sort of files that you might have deleted or lost. It allows you to restore them in no time.
It sports a really intuitive and clean graphical interface with many useful tools at hand. It doesn't require registration, but it only comes with some instructions on how to use the program.
It lacks any customization options, but you wouldn't really need them since the interface is quite modern. The trial version allows you to perform scans, but if you want to retrieve files you will have to purchase the paid version.
The first thing that you need to do after launching the application is to pick from one of the three available scan options. You can have the program perform a very fast file scan and find the most deleted files, perform a deep scan with multiple results and recover all information on drives that have been formatted or damaged.
You also need to specify the directory that you would like to scan. It displays results based on file type or arranged into their original folders. You can navigate through files using the tree-view.
It displays information on the file name, size, type, folder and date modified or created. It also shows you the degree of recovery in percentages. Results can be filtered by file name, date interval, size or even keyword.
You can also have the application search for only a specific file format. All in all, File Plucker is a very useful application for scanning your computer in order to find lost files and restoring them in just a few steps.
