The name Pandora originates in Greek mythology, and it means "all-giving." It's an appropriate name for Pandora Recovery, which can give you back files you've deleted–even those gone for months.
Now for NTFS and FAT-formatted volumes, Pandora functions by scanning
the hard drive and building an index of existing files and deleted file
markers. This, in turn, allows the dead files to be brought back to
life–as long as the file format is currently supported by the
computer. Users can browse for deleted files, search for specific ones,
preview certain file types like images, and get an estimate on the
chance of recovery and the amount of time the procedure will take.
The program offers a guidance wizard to make sure that you're
able to find deleted files. Pandora cautions you to recover deleted
files to a separate drive from the one which they're being recovered
from–sound advice, and the program makes it easy to recover to an
external hard disk or portable drive. The interface isn't anything
special, but combines Windows XP Explorer-style navigation with its own
toolbar for an effective if uninspired layout.
