How many "I cannot believe I did that!" moments have you had when you accidentally deleted documents, audio clips, photos and email messages from your computer or mobile devices? It is also possible that an upset sibling or roommate decided to mess with your unattended computer by deleting a deceivingly unimportant email that contained important information about your school or work. You do not need to make a fuss (or maybe you do, just to make them feel super guilty) because they can be recovered back into your mailbox.
How is this possible? Well, when an email or file is deleted, it is relocated to a space where all deleted items are placed in queue to be overwritten either by clicking the "Delete Forever" button or by occupying its space with a new item. Once they are overwritten, you usually will not be able to get them back - however, with the help of a really good data recovery tool, you may be able to retrieve them in whole or partially.
There are plenty of data recovery tools available in the market to help you recover deleted files. They are great in helping you "undelete" emails and files on your computer. While there is no existing email recovery tool, here is a list of freeware that will help you undo the mistaken act of deleting important emails and files:
This data recovery tool is able to restore emails, images, videos, audio files etc. from desktop computers, laptops, mobile devices, hard drives, iPods and digital cameras. It is one of the most reliable software around that facilitates the retrieval of deleted data easily, quickly and effectively.

Of course, this list is not exhaustive and there are plenty of other software, free or paid, that can help you get back lost or deleted emails, files and other data.
