Hi all,
Yesterday I accidentally deleted a .jpg image file from my O2 XDA Orbit - Windows Mobile PocketPC. So, I came on to the internet in search of a utility program which would restore deleted files, thinking this would be simple....think again.
I cannot find anywhere a program such as this..........so any suggestions?

Surely there must be something out there which can recover deleted files on a windows mobile device, it would seem strange if there isn't.

Many thanks in advance for any replies.

Ash.

There is no way to recover the file. Some file explorer programs offer a "recycle bin" feature, but only if you delete files through that file explorer. I think Resco File Explorer offers something like this.

Well I am extremely suprised at that, i 100% expected it to be standard in windows especially. But never the less, thanks for your response. In my mind, accidental file deletion is very common and in some cases, like mine, very unfortunate. Maybe i should learn to be more careful next time!

Have in mind the Windows Mobile OS is completely different and use a separate code base from the desktop version... Also, most files would have a copy on the desktop, so you should be able to restore from there.

But, yes, this would be a handy feature...
