Deleted files in a Windows computer are moved to the recycle bin from where it’s possible to recover them. But, in an external drive, like a USB thumbdrive, they are purged straightaway, and indeed a bother to recover them. The solution? Install iBin on your pen drive and run. Whenever you delete a file, you’d be asked whether you want to move it to the iBin or not. On your choosing iBin the file(s) get moved to an iBin folder, and can be recovered using the iBin interface. The Dumping Management interface offers option to select any file or folder to be restored to its original path.

And, the user can change the size used by the iBin container, activate the use of hotkeys, and program the Auto-Cleaner routine to keep the iBin empty whenever necessary. Its also possible write a entry in the Autorun.inf file to start up the iBin when the user connects the device. The 685KB iBin v2.7a can be downloaded at http://www.autohotkey.net/~FirstToyLab/project_iBin_download.htm.
