Pandora Recovery allows you to find and recover recoverable deleted files from NTFS and FAT-formatted volumes. It will scan your hard drive and build an index of existing and deleted files and directories (folders) on any logical drive of your computer with a supported file format. Once the scanning is complete you have full control over which files to recover and what destination to recover them to.

You can BROWSE the hierarchy of existing and deleted files, or you can use SEARCH functionality to find a deleted file if you remember at least one of the following: full or partial file name, file size, file creation date, or file last accessed date.

Pandora Recovery is a robust PC software designed to retrieve lost or deleted files, whether accidentally removed, lost due to system crashes, or corrupted by malware. It operates by scanning your storage devices, identifying remnants of deleted files, and offering tools to restore them to their original state. With its intuitive interface and advanced file recovery algorithms, it aims to provide a seamless solution for users seeking to recover their important data.

On top of that, Pandora Recovery for Windows 11/10 allows you to preview deleted files of a certain type (images and text files) without performing recovery. This feature becomes really important if you are forced to recover deleted files to the same drive. Currently, you can preview files having several image file types (BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, ICO, TIF, TGA, PCX, WBMP, WMF, JP2, J2K, JBG, JPC, PGX, PNM, RAS, CUR) and several text file types (TXT, LOG, INI, BAT, RTF, XML, CSS).

Quick Viewer allows you to preview file contents as text if it cannot find the appropriate viewer for it. To use a quick viewer you can select a deleted file and or click the Quick Viewer icon or right-click on the deleted file and select 'Quick View'. Quick View will then display a preview of the deleted file.

Finally, the app allows you to recover deleted files, without any limitations on the application's end. Note that successful recovery might not be possible - if the original location has been reused by the operating system to store different content the integrity of the original content has not been preserved and the recovered data will most likely be corrupted.
