  1. There's no published link that I'm aware of. The link is probably known to (let's be generous) a thousand users, against CC's claim of 6 billion downloads, which is statistially zero. Any link that's not published is unsupported, but Piriform staff have mentioned it and Piriform publishes MD5 hashes for the slim and portables. I don't know any other business that operates in such a bewildering way. This is of course not the answer to the problem raised in this thread, which is a running sore. To keep clear of this I use an old portable version. Yes, unsupported.
  2. Portable Recuva

    There is no limit 'on the number of files retrieved' in any version of Recuva.
  3. Well, I'm sure some of this will be down to personal opinion, but if you want to avoid 'adversely affecting my SSD' then don't run any defragger against it. My HDD dating back to 2006 which was retired early this year has never been defragged and everything was well, just fine. On an SSD it would be just finer. It's worth remembering that fragmentation is a logical construct, it doesn't exist on the disk. All a disk knows is clusters, or pages, and some are used and some aren't. Fragmentation is defined in the MFT, and that's what is used to create the Defraggler display and percentages. Whilst a HDD might suffer some slight delay in fetching disparate clusters (but I never noticed) on an SSD the overhead is as minimal as it can get. Windows 10 does defrag SSDs if certain conditions have been met, as has been discussed here recently. But this is not to reduce fragmentation in general, but to eliminate the possibility of mass extents in snapshot volumes, a very particular and specific aim. That's my opinion, there will be others. It doesn't sound to me that you have an overwhelming need to defrag your drive. Whether your loss of space is normal Defraggler action I don't know.
  4. Because these files are, as it states, not deleted. You can't delete a live file with Recuva. That's CC's job.
  5. CCleaner Wipe Disk Bug

    This thread goes back to the big bang, and you don't have the same problem. Please stick to your original thread.
  6. No progress after 3 days

    Simply reading a 1 tb disk (at around 150 mb a sec) should take about two hours, if my maths is correct. Recuva does rather more, it runs a normal scan first (which should be a few minutes only) and during the deep scan has to correlate the used (live) clusters with the unused, compare the first section of each cluster with a table of known file headers, build up a list in memory of what valid files it has found, and do all the other things I can't think of at the moment or just don't know about. In any event three days is silly. I doubt if anything good will come if Recuva ever finishes, but what it's doing heaven only knows. I guess it's an HDD, USB?
  7. Recuva Shows 0% After 2.5+ Hours

    I would think the problem has been resolved by now. Mopakarim, that's a very spammy post. So much so that you have been politely shown the door.
  8. The last two posts (barring yours, Mta) are spam. I think this thread needs pruning. Maybe you are still stunned from yesterday's ODI cricket. I am.
  9. It doesn't on mine either, because I'm running Win 10 and the default is sys restore disabled.
  10. Recover Deleted Video from SD Card

    Sorry, I have no experience of that file system.
  11. Recover Deleted Video from SD Card

    Difficult to say without knowing what file system is used, and whether camera, phone, etc.
  12. Avast CEO paid peanuts

    And not many peanuts for all that. Avast's new chief executive Ondrej Vicek has waived his salary and bonus and will take just $1 a year indefinitely. He's also donating his $100,000 board fee to charity (he can still receive shares in the company's incentive plan).. The previous CE Vincent Steckler was paid $512,653 salary plus a bonus of $632,627 last year. When did Avast lose its ! by the way? I'll answer that myself. The original Avast! blob logo was designed in-house by Martin Novak in 2010. It was redesigned and lost the exclamation mark in late 2016.
  13. recover from advanced mode

    in my understanding of your post, Recuva has always done what you're suggesting. Run a plain scan, and then you can put whatever filters you like in the File/Path box without rescanning, ad infinitum. Just press Scan to start a new scan, no need to close Recuva.
  14. USB Device Unrecognized

    That's because it's spam, H. He's the same user as the banned Bkdroid13. Do your duty.
