Unblunder1.2.5

Protect yourself against accidental data loss.

Overview

Unblunder was designed to protect against accidental data loss.

Have you ever sent something to the Trash and emptied it only to realize moments later... OOOPS? We all have and it can happen to anyone.

Unblunder to the rescue!

Unblunder uses OS X's UNIX underpinnings to hang on to files after the Trash has been emptied. When started, it runs quietly in the background and stays out of your way.

Essentially, Unblunder offers OS X a much needed "Recently Deleted" feature, giving you plenty of time to recover files before they're gone forever. Note: for optimal file recovery and peace of mind, Unblunder needs to be running before an accident happens (i.e., trashing the wrong file).

By default, trashed files over 250 MB in size linger for 5 minutes and smaller files are kept for a day. Of course, you can tweak all these settings to match your work style at anytime.

You no longer need to bother with expensive, complicated file recovery software. Unblunder is much faster and, more importantly, helps instantly recover your files exactly as they were when deleted -- not how they were an hour ago or a week ago.

Try out the free 7-day demo and see for yourself.

Unblunder gives you an extra cushion of assurance when working on your Mac.

Some key new features in Unblunder:

  • Protects against accidental data loss.
  • Runs quietly in the background.
  • Easy access from the menubar.
  • Uses almost no system resources.
  • Instant recovery of recently deleted items.
  • A no-brainer to use.
  • Offer constant peace of mind.
  • Fully customizable.
  • and more!

I had 2 after-business-hours questions: does the license follow the user or the machine (user); App Store plans (unsure). A responsive email arrived immediately. Then I realized I forgot to ask a 3rd Q: is there some sort of automatic update mechanism in place (Sparkle). Once again, the response came within 2-3 minutes. That's the sort of thing that makes me WANT to support a dev with my $$. I couldn't get back to the website fast enough to place my order. As for the app itself, its inherent quality (genuinely set it and forget it) is dwarfed only by the attention this dev lavishes on his customers, paid or prospective. (Don't know the dev, just his handiwork.)

Surprisingly simple. You start it and "forget" it. It's like it doesn't exist. There's only one bar on the menu to remind me that I'm not alone, when I have to retrieve what I accidentally erased. There is nothing better for immediate solutions.

I wish I could adjust the time of the definitive deletion and a field that shows the total of "saved" files.

Does not work on all files, only on some random selection of files! My settings are maxed out to keep everything I delete for as long as possible - yet that does not help.

When this App finally lets files go, does it use regular or secure delete?

I purchased bundle today and have not yet installed this app as I am concerned of the trash I want securely deleted, such as all my files downloaded after I do my banking online. I do not wish for these to ever be found once put in the trash. Do they stay even after a secure delete trash chosen from finder?

I quite like Unblunder. But it's missing something that seems so natural and even important that I wonder why it wasn't included in the first version: a SIZE column in the Unblunder window. When it opens, the first thing I look for/at — after the app(s) name(s) of course — is the size of the files available to recover. Am I perhaps missing a pref setting or display option somewhere? If not, I think I'll wait for enough people to request a size column before I spring for Unblunder.

I'm curious how this compares to just using Time Machine to go back before you deleted the file and restore it?

What a great and unique idea. The only thing missing is an option to automatically start Unblunder in the user logins items.
