This is a data-loss prevention and recovery software from Unistal. The product can be used both by home and office users, and is affordable. It takes daily backups of all critical areas of your hard drive such as the partition table, and root directory. It also takes a backup of the critical information of important ten directories.

It’s quite easy to use, and comes on a single floppy. You need the floppy whenever you have to recover any data. A good feature about the product is that it doesn’t let you recover data onto the same hard drive or partition from where the files were deleted. This way, the recovery will not accidentally overwrite the deleted areas.

The program stores seven days’ critical information, so you can recover from the day you need to. It also keeps multiple copies of the information, so in case one gets corrupt, you can resort to the other one. The program supports Windows based partitions including FAT, FAT32, and NTFS. While the product is quite useful, the manual could have been a little more extensive. Overall, a very useful utility for everybody.
