Symantec's Norton SystemWorks has pulled off a major upset in the contest for Best Undelete Utility, taking the award from Executive Software's Undelete 4.0, which won the award in 2003 and 2002. Not bad for a suite of diagnostic and repair software that includes an undelete utility.

Norton SystemWorks' UnErase Wizard gives users their choice of three methods for recovering deleted files. The Find recently deleted files option searches for the last 25 deleted files, whether the files exist in the Norton Protected Recycle Bin or the Windows Recycle Bin. The Find all protected files on local drives option searches only for files protected by the Windows Recycle Bin or Norton Protected Recycle Bin. These files are those that are typically not recoverable, such as overwritten files or files deleted from a DOS dialog box. Finally, the Find any recoverable files matching your criteria option lets users search for files according to specified criteria such as filename, file type, file location, and file contents.
