Hi

I accidently deleted a whole folder, thinking that I had initially selected a file within it

All the apps I can find to undelete the folder, and its contents, want to copy the recovered files to another drive

Isn't there a method to unflag the deleted files ? And therefore leave them where they are ?

thanks

That's on the old FAT file system.  Modern Windows use the NTFS and that is far more complex and I don't know if that method will work on NTFS.

Yep.  And the recommendation is that you don't install an undelete application on the drive you wish to recover from.

So you take your drive across to another machine where the undelete application is (I do recommend GetDataBack https://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm - free to try, pay if you want recovery) and get it to scan the drive and copy the found files across.
