I was over-zealous when clearing space on my hard disk and accidentally deleted a project that wasn’t completely under source control. Fortunately, WinUndelete came to the rescue. It finds files that weren’t even in the recycle bin and allows you to restrict the search to only the file extensions you need (making it much faster than some competitor products). The restore worked perfectly – although the display of the found files wasn’t that pretty, it did the job. My only gripe was the cost – $49.95 seems pretty high when I only needed two files. Still, it was worth it to avoid repeating half a day of development.
