WinUtilities Undelete 3.1
Find and recover accidentally deleted files with the minimum of hassle

WinUtilities Undelete is a straightforward tool for recovering accidentally deleted files.

Run the program, choose the drive containing your deleted files, and WinUtilities Undelete will scan the volume for you. You'll then be able to browse directly to the folder in an Explorer-like interface to find your document, or you can browse all the deleted files in a new "All Deleted Files" folder. The program will highlight the condition of each file, so you can easily see your chances of a successful recovery, and these can then be undeleted with a right-click option.

As per usual with this kind of tool, the list of deleted files can be a lengthy one, making it more difficult to find what you need. So it's good to see there's a Search option available to help. Right-click in the right-hand pane, choose the Search option, and you can opt to search for files matching the text you provide.

The author's website also claims the program allows you to "preview images and binary files before recovery", however we couldn't see how to do this, and that's a minor annoyance. You can view the text names of deleted images, for instance, but no thumbnails, so you'll need to recover them before you can see precisely what they are.

Verdict:

WinUtilities Undelete is a capable enough undelete tool, although it would benefit from a better interface, and the ability to preview files before you try to undelete them

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
