"TestDisk can ... Undelete files from FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2 filesystem ...
Copy files from deleted FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3/ext4 partitions."


I haven't tried building that (and don't know if the separate download
links still work, but at least the latest TestDisk isn't 6.12 anymore,
instead 6.14), but it shouldn't be too hard to get working.

It's not that a Linux liveCD (or whatever else) isn't acceptable, but
those often have higher RAM and cpu requirements than most DOS

P.S. I think the original (16-bit) DOS Navigator 1.51 (now freeware w/
sources) had a built-in undelete, too. Not sure if later variants kept
that part, however. IIRC, wDE undeletes too.
