Multistage Recovery is capable of retrieving files and folders that you thought lost forever. These files may have been deleted accidentally (or not), stored in formatted partitions, or wiped out from the recycle bin, for instance. The program supports all Windows file systems (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, VFAT and NTFS or NTFS5), so that you can use it not only with hard disks but also with Flash drives and other external devices.

Probably the feature that makes this recovery utility stand out from most of its competitors is the program’s “honesty”. Unlike other similar tools that boast of showing endless lists of deleted files, be they retrievable or not, Multistage Recovery will only show you those files that can be effectively recovered. This means that every single file and folder that appears on the program’s list after a scan process is there because it can be retrieved with 100% accuracy. This allows the program to show you perfect previews of any of the images listed, instead of just tiny fragments of them.

All internal and external storage devices are fully supported. Hard drives, Flash drives, USB drives, floppy disks, and all types of removable cards (SD, microSD, TransFlash, etc.) can be thoroughly scanned looking for files to undelete. The scan processes themselves are also one of the program’s big assets. It offers you three different undelete methods, depending on the type of file you are looking for. Together with the program’s default scan, there are specific methods to look for missing NTFS files, FAT files, and files in formatted partitions (low level file search).

If you are looking for an honest recovery tool that does bring back to life all the lost files and folders it can identify, Multistage Recovery is a tool worth trying. The program’s one-window interface makes the entire recovery process simple and gratifying.
