The Recycle Bin for Windows has been designed to protect files from accidental erasure, but what happens if you want to recover a file deleted from the Recycle Bin itself? Or, what if your deleted file didn't get to the Recycle Bin? Viruses will not send anything to the Recycle Bin! Give Back2Life a chance to find and unerase those files! Back2Life is a handy undelete and data recovery utility for Windows. Looking similar to Windows Explorer, it provides access to erased files and folders that are beyond the reach of the Recycle Bin.
