  1. Option to leave advanced mode

    Thanks for responding. What wasn't appearing on the list of file types in the advanced mode was an option to get back to the master list of files. But in another scan I noticed how it might be by manually entering... D:\* where the D here was my drive name.
  2. UPDATE: I'm gasslighting myself. I got the 60gig drive to work on my Win10 PC using the adapter I used that found so many files. I had to dig out an ancient power supply to find the right plugs to power it. And it's not finding those 200k files I found last night. It's finding the same 98k files and no email even shows up. So at this point I have no idea why Recuva found so many files yesterday and not today.
  3. Can't open and play recovered movie files

    Found it. This is the program I used... You can try it for free... but it will only show you half the video. But at least that will see if it works. Of course maybe some of the free ones now do the same thing. My experience was 3-4 years ago.
  4. I've been trying to recover files from a 2002 drive. I did a deep scan for all files. When they were listed I went to the advanced mode to look for emails rather than go through the long list. There were none... in fact no files for those categories... music, photos etc. So what were all those files I originally saw? But I could not get back to the original list. I did the scan all over again, but since I was still in advanced mode... again none showed up in those categories. There needs to be a way to get back to the file listing in the original mode.
  5. Can't open and play recovered movie files

    I just posted this about damaged photos... but it may really apply here. I was shooting video at the US border crossing coming back from Canada and the person at the booth demanded my camera. Oops. It, for me was just part of the vacation. To them it was a security threat. We had to go inside and I had to delete the video in front of them. I stopped using that SD care to avoid overwriting the videos. Back home I was able to recover them back home but they would not play. But I found a program that would take the correct headers or some info from a good file, and insert them in the damaged files. That worked. So I assumed there may be some similar program for damaged photos as well. Mine also was a Canon camera. I think the program was this one but I'm not sure. I didn't think the one I used was free.

  7. I have been trying to recover old email files from a 2002 IDE drive and finally got it all to work on a 2009 Win7 PC. I originally used bi-directional IDE to SATA adapter and it showed over 200k files on this old 60gig drive. I didn't have time to do the complete deep scan (10 hours), only 2%, but it brought up about 1500 emails 150 were completely recoverable. I then went to a new Win10 PC and used an external case that had an adapter for IDE and it showed 98k files... and no email files showed up after complete 40 min deep scan. On both PCs I was using the newest version of Recuva and all the settings were the same. So I went back to the 2009 computer using the same external case... and again only 98k files, no emails showed up. So how is it that the bi-directional adapter allowed Recuva to access more files than the IDE adapter on the external drive case? FYI the adapter was by Best Connectivity and features some Sunplus SPIF233 Chipset... whatever that is.
  8. This might be a Win10 bug... or a Recuva bug... or both. I'm running Win10 64. and Revuva (v1.53 64 bit). Typically when a running program is in the taskbar... one can run a cursor over it and see the small preview window. If one moves the cursor up to the preview window, the window fills the screen. When I left click on that preview... I can access the window with the program running and it stays open... in this case it should be Recuva with the search results. But I can't. If I right click on the preview window I get 3 options... Recuva, pint to taskbar, and close window. If I click on Recuva... it doesn't open the search results... it opens a brand new process. Essentially I was locked out of being able to work in the search results I just conducted. I also can't close Recuva from the taskbar. I have to do it from Task Manager. I have a taskbar problem with only one other program... a mp3 player called AIMP3. I can't open or close it from the taskbar and need to use Task Manager.
  9. Recovered Video Files Are Corrupted

    Thanks for responding. Yes, I've seen some repair utilities that want a un-corrupted file shot on the same camera to try and rebuild the corrupted files. But just curious, how can a video file lose its header... part of the original file, without some part of it being over written? How is Recuva not detecting this damage? Recuva has done wonders in saving all others file types.
  10. Recovered Video Files Are Corrupted

    Quick note.... I wasn't as stupid as I thought. I found the missing files on one of my 6 external drives. But it still begs the question why is Recuva saying that these video files are 100% undamaged... and yet none play?
  11. 1TB of important photos and documents

    "I accidentally deleted them from my 2TB external hard drive WD My Passport to the computer through the Recycle Bin on May 2nd, 2016 but now I realized I need those files back." Not sure what you mean. When you have two HDs connected and look at the Recycle box... it shows the deleted files from BOTH HDs and even if they seem to be together in the same place, THEY ARE NOT. But it sounds as if you think the files were transferred to the main PC when deleted from the external. Just think of how much time this would take... and room on your PC drive. >>>>>Have you run Recuva just on your external Drive? They could/should still be there if you haven't overwritten any. If they are, you're going to need a free drive of the same size to recover the 1 TB of files. If you try to recover to the same drive you're writing over the files you're trying to recover.
  12. I was trying to recover some video files from an SD card that had been moved to my PC where I must have foolishly deleted them. This required a deep scan and though the files all showed to be in perfect condition with no overwritten clusters... none actually play. Any ideas? I'm investigating .mov repair programs... but recovery would be the best option. Thanks!
  13. I don't want to delete all my cookies. I was hoping to use the CCleaner to manage cookies... protecting the ones I want from deletion. Avant must keep them buried somewhere in AppData or elsewhere. The reason I use Firefox though Avant as opposed to the standalone version is because it permits use of my bookmarks going back 10 years... and has some other nice features.
  14. EDIT: I can't change the name of the thread... so here's the update. I use the Avant browser that has three browser engines... one is Firefox. Cleaner does seem to clean the cookies from the stand alone Firefox browser... but the tools > privacy > cookies section in the Avant FFox is different from the standalone. So Avant has its own cookie cache which isn't being cleaned. Here's the original post. I'm so dumb. I've used CCleaner's cookie manager for years to delete unwanted IE cookies and save the ones I wanted... and assumed it worked the same for Firefox... after all I checked them off to be deleted. So for months I wondered why sites like Amazon always knew it was me ever though I signed out... and even changed my IP numerous times. So I finally checked the cookie list in Firefox to find a huge list. CCleaner wasn't deleting these cookies at all. So how do I get CCleaner to manage these FF cookies the same way it does with IE? Thanks!
  15. recovery

    In the digital world... where identical files can be created without errors... who can tell what is the original file except possibly with a timestamp? When you move or delete a file... is it really gone? Or has the OS just lost track of it? Programs like Recuva prove it's harder to get rid of digital files than you thought. Are they identical? You can do MD5 checksums on each. That would show if even on bit had changed.
