  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. It doesn't on mine either, because I'm running Win 10 and the default is sys restore disabled.
  5. Recover Deleted Video from SD Card

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

    Difficult to say without knowing what file system is used, and whether camera, phone, etc.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. USB Device Unrecognized

    That's because it's spam, H. He's the same user as the banned Bkdroid13. Do your duty.
  10. Ccleaner use with SSD (solid state drive)

    Unfortunately the reason why we have TRIM makes this impossible. There is no indication to the SSD controller that a page has been deleted. The deletion is executed by a change to the bit status in the cluster bit map metafile. Whilst the controller can see that a page has been updated, it doesn't know that the page is a bitmap, or what a bitmap is - or what a file is for that matter. So the O/S has to tell the SSD what to do, with TRIM.
  11. Ccleaner use with SSD (solid state drive)

    CCleaner is quite suitable for use on SSDs in its base objective, 'cleaning' junk files, which is a simple delete. The architecture of NAND flash make overwriting pages and blocks impossible for any software. Thus a secure delete, or a free space wipe (both of which overwrite pages) are pointless to attempt and impossible to execute. To add to Andavari's post, I think TRIM was available from Vista onwards, and SSD controllers have supported TRIM for I guess at least the last five years. The default is enabled. Win10 runs regular TRIMs for you by default. You may wish to use Recuva to look at your deleted files. Although you will still see a list of deleted file names (they're held in the MFT) if you switch to advanced mode and look at the file header you will see that they are all zeroes, even if you haven't used secure deleteion or wipe free space. That is the effect of TRIM, and may reassure you.
  12. One has to ask that if defraggler (and other aftermarket d/f's) are cpu heavy why don't you use Windows defragger? In Win 8 onwards with standard settings you will get a monthly defrafg of your HDD and SSD drives anyway if certain conditions are met. Sometimes Widows can look after itself quite well.
  13. Increasing C Drive

    Why not just move some of your data folders to the D drive? That would be the same as 'taking away' space from the D drive, and exceedingly easy.
  14. Top 10 Games

    What are top 10 spammers of 2019 ? I dunno, but you're on the list.
  15. Hide files

    Yes. It's the same way that CC wipes the Master File Table.
