E-Support Undelete Plus is powerful software that can quickly scan a computer or storage medium for deleted files and restore them on command. It works with computers, flash drives, cameras, and other forms of data storage. Deleting a file from your computer, flash disk, camera, or the like does not mean it is lost forever. Software doesn’t destroy files when it deletes, it simply marks the space the file was using as being available for re-use.

Instead, the file system will simply mark the file as deleted, and no longer show you the file when you browse the contents of the disk. DiskDigger scans the file system for such deleted files, exposes them to you, and allows you to bring them back as ordinary files again. However, this kind of process has several limitations. Firstly, DiskDigger has to be "aware" of what file system is present on the disk. Therefore, it only supports certain types of file systems:

• FAT — used on floppy disks (FAT12), most USB flash drives and memory cards under
