    I have accidently deleted 25 gigs of music and would like to restore it.
    I have downloaded Restoration version 2.5.14 (?)
    All the data is there, however I can only restore one file at a time is there something else I can use to restore large file chunks rather than one at a time?
    Hopefully windows is not currently writing over the info. I have disabled programs that might do this.

    No, I have never seen a program that does more than one at a time.

    And using the PC at all may over write deleted files. I would install the drive into another PC.

    To reinforce the above do NOT EVER recover files on the same hard drive or partition that they were deleted on. The recovery action will write over the rest of the deleted files without doubt.

    When deleted the areas on the disk are marked as available, the recovery program will use then for the recovery process.
