  1. I think that plenty of people would notice if the free CC didn't clean. The free version cleans for the current user, where the paid versions can clean for all users.
  2. This is a Piriform forum so specific discussion of competitor software is not allowed. This subject might attract some vitriol as well, so unfortunately the thread will have to be locked.
  3. Ignored Files in Recuva

    Yes. Read my previous post.
  4. Help locating my compact flash

    One post will do, thanks, and I've moved this to Recuva Discuaaion. I presume that your camera cable to pc will result in a drive letter appearing for the card. Just select that drive letter when runnning a scan in Recuva.
  5. Changes in v5.45 and your feedback

    Yeah. The Data Factsheet (you know, the stuff nobody reads) states pretty clearly in the first section that: '...it is necessary for some data, such as the operating system you’re on, whether you’re using a free or paid version of CCleaner, and the language you’re using, to be reported.' and '...anonymous usage data doesn’t need to be reported for us to maintain CCleaner, but it does help us to build a better product. It provides us with statistics about what is being used within CCleaner and what isn’t. ... You can choose whether you’d like CCleaner to report anonymous data in CCleaner’s ‘Privacy’ tab.' So you're still going to get that initial ping on CC startup, even if you've unchecked the usage data box. Should you care? That's up to you, I rate it at about the same level as eveyone knowing what make and model of car I use everytime I go to the shops.
  6. How to search recuvia results

    After the scan go into Advanced Mode and enter either the file name (or part of it) or the extension in the File Name/Path box.
  7. Unable to open recovered photos

    It's difficult to say with the level of information given, but possibly not. If the image handling software says it's the wrong format, then it's doubtful that the rest of the data holds any image at all. A file name with a .jpg extension does not mean that the file contents are in a .jpg format. You could try a deep scan, and hope that the pics are in one extent.
  8. Can you sort photos

    Click on the column heading for State and the contents will be sorted with Excellent first.
  9. Recuva not working

    It looks like H can't even access the disk to me. Is that so, or has a scan been run?
  10. Search field

    Well, just look for it. It's hardly an extensive list, is it? It's easier to wag the slider bar up and down than type something in a search box.
  11. Yes they will (minus any that have been overwritten by subsequent activity on your pc). Recuva copies deleted files to another device, they are untouched on the source device.
  12. Unfortunately you'll have to re-run the recovery with the correct option selected.
  13. Only restoring shortcuts to files

    File's data not on disk means that the cluster addresses are not valid, they are probably set to 0xffff. There's no point trying to follow these addresses. You may find your files with a deep scan, if, at the end of the scan, you filter for file type and date, size etc. But this is a long job, and if you find a file only the first extent will be recoverable without professional help.
  14. Picture/Images not being recovered

    Recovery is not actually recovery, Recuva (and other recovery software) will copy the contents of the deleted clusters exactly as they are to a folder on another device. If a header is seen as corrupted it means that the cluster contents don't match the heade specification for that thype of file. In this case it is unlikely that the rest of the clusters will be viable either. In the O/P's case a header of null (zeroes) almost certinly means that the file has gone forever. In other words I don't think it's just the header that's been lost.
  15. SSD plus Optane optimizer

    Run Windows Optimise?
