    Great Undelete pgm for GPT spanned drive -- works !!

    Hi there
    I'd accidentally deleted an entire Video library from a set of TWO disk drives defined as Spanned as a single 4TB GPT formatted drive.

    I thought I'd had that -- but eSupport Undelete Plus worked an absolute miracle and was able to restore the entire library even though at delete time I got message "File to big to send to recycle bin -- delete permanently".

    I was just in the process of going to arrange backups -- and was re-organising my Disks -- just shows you that an accidental delete can happen to ANYONE no matter how careful you usually are -- and it would have been a HUMUNGOUS pain to re-create this all over again. -- I'm running W8 x-64 enterprise (TechNet edition) BTW.

    For example (it can show in Folders as well as files stuff available for restore) screenshot enc -- here's just one part of my video library --the entire 5 seasons of Stargate Atlantis.

    Fortunately I hadn't touched anything an the drive after deleting the library so the ENTIRE library was re-coverable -- nearly 400 GB of Video !!!!!. and this was on 2 disks spanned and set as GPT.

    Well worth EVERY EUROCENT / CENT / PENNY etc. -- Everone is going to delete some major library by accident at least ONCE at some time.

    On restore it restored all the files to the original directories and sub directories so I just had to click the boxes for the files and the program did the rest -- brilliant piece of software.

    If you accidentally delete stuff then STOP all activity as far as possible on the drive where you've deleted the data from and run your recovery AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so the directory entries don't get over written or the data clusters filled with new data.
