Undelete 360 is the free version of a commercial product, and so leaves out some useful features (file filtering, previews and so on). These still appear in the interface, though, and suggest you upgrade if you ever click on them, which can be annoying. There are no restrictions on the amount or size of the files you can recover, though, and otherwise the program is very simple to use: point it at a drive, it'll scan for deleted files, then you can view particular file types (JPGs, PDFs, videos and more) by choosing them from a tree. Scanning speed isn't great, but Undelete 360 can recover files that other programs miss, and so it's definitely worth considering [ (Williams, 2013) ].

This software would be a good one for the general public that is conducting some kind of investigation. Additionally, this tool only works for devices that have the CDMA Qualcomm chipset based phones, so this would not work for GSM phones and/or carriers (BitPim).
The pro to using this the BitPin forensic tool is that it does however gather the phonebook, calendar, wallpapers, ringtones, to do’s, SMS, call history, playlists and filesystem for the most of the supported phones (BitPim).

Extractor by Oxygen Forensics costs approximately $600; however they offer a light version which excludes the ability to conduct device backups, image support and render data reports. Because of the single user interface Extractor provides, this makes it much easier to manage, and I would certainly consider utilizing this tool if I was a system forensics specialist (Oxygen Forensics, Inc.).
A scenario where this tool would be of much assistance is if an organization is investigating an unprofessional relationship between two employees of a company (supervisor and subordinate). Using this tool, a specialist would be able to extract any emails or text messages sent to and from a mobile device. Even if the messages were deleted, the Extractor tool can recover them and the evidence can be used to support the case (Oxygen Forensics, Inc.).
