Recovery of Windows Mail/Windows Live Mail messages and Windows Vista/7 contacts

1. Welcome screen

This is the initial screen of the recovery wizard containing a welcome message and a Next button at the bottom of the window. Click this button to proceed to the next step.

2. Selection of the source drive

The second step of the wizard prompts you for the drive the program will search for deleted items on. Just select one from the list of available NTFS-formatted drives and click the Next button to start the analysis.

3. Data analysis (automated)

This stage of the data recovery process is completely automated. You will briefly see a new window with a log of the actions being performed and an elapsed time indicator. Once the program is done scanning the selected drive, it will automatically move on to the next step.

4. Preview of recoverable data

On this stage, Mail Undelete Recovery Toolbox Free displays a list of recoverable items in the form of a tree. You can expand tree nodes and navigate the folder structure to select the files you need. The pane on the right hand side displays item-specific information when an item is selected in the tree. You can select individual items or entire folders to be recovered. Once we have made your selection, you can proceed further by clicking the Next button.

5. Selection of the output folder and recovery settings

The fifth step of the data recovery wizard enables you to specify the folder to be used for storing the recovered items. This can be done in several ways:

  1. By typing its name and path into the input field located at the top of the program window
  2. Using the standard Windows open file dialog that can be opened by clicking the corresponding button to the right of the field.
  3. By selecting a previously used location from the dropdown list that can be opened by clicking a small button with a downward arrow in the right part of the input field.

The panels under the destination folder field give you some flexibility in terms of controlling the way your files will be recovered. If you want the program to recreate the original folder structure in the specified destination folder, choose Directory tree. If you'd like the program to simply copy the recovered files to the target folder, use the One directory for all files option.

The last three options pertain to the actions of the program in case of file name conflicts. If a file with the same name as the one being recovered already exists in the destination folder, you can configure Mail Undelete Recovery Toolbox Free to act according to one of the following scenarios:

  1. Overwrite existing files
  2. Rename the saved file (add a number to the end of the file name)
  3. Don't save the file

Once you have selected the necessary recovery options, just hit Next and wait for the program to do its job and proceed to the final step.

6. Recovery log

This is the final step of the wizard that allows you to view the recovery log and see what objects were recovered, what their size in bytes was and where they were copied to. At this point, you can finish working with the program by clicking the Exit button, go back any number of steps in the current recovery session or click your way through to the very first step and choose another drive for recovery.

As you can see, Mail Undelete Recovery Toolbox Free is amazingly simple and fast - and using it is a real breeze. However, don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or problems using the product.
