  1. Recuva Shows 0% After 2.5+ Hours

    I actually haven’t recovered the drive yet. I ran the scan several times, and it kept crashing! It’s not a heavily used drive. I used it to transfer files from one drive to a new computer. I’ve used it only a handful of times, actually. I’ll try again with deep scan turned off.
  2. So I’m trying to recover a 1TB Western Digital Elements portable hard drive. It’s showing as having bad sectors and won’t read at all in Windows Explorer. (I get an I/O error if I try to open it.). Chkdsk was unable to fix it. I partially scanned the drive with EasUS Data Recovery, which showed over 50,000 files found. I wasn’t excited about paying $70 for the full version of EasUS so I’m trying Recuva. I’m running a deep scan with checking for undeleted files. I ran it at first for 25-30 mins, but it seemed stalled, so I stopped it. It did show many files, so I started a scan again. Now after 2.5 hours, all I see is “Step 1 of 3: Scanning Drive for deleted files. Current progress: 0%, 1file(s) found. Calculating time left...” is the program actually working, or has it crashed? Should I just continue to let it run?
  3. Recuva Shows 0% After 2.5+ Hours

    So...follow up question here! My last run of Recuva failed, because my laptop apparently turned off sometime during the night. (Even though I had it plugged in and disabled sleep mode.) Grrrr! I've been running the program on a desktop now, for about 28 hours and counting. It shows it's still on stage 1 of 3, with 61,857 files found. But the progress shows as 156%?! Estimated time left keeps cycling continuously through number of days, 45, 34, 7, 2, 22, 3, 6, 11.... What's up?? Is the end anywhere in sight? I can't tell either from the estimate or the progress bar how far along I am in this process. Is this normal behavior?
  4. Recuva Shows 0% After 2.5+ Hours

    Never mind, I’m finally seeing progress after about 3.5 hours. It shows 8% progress and 2days estimated time. It still only shows 1 file found, but I’m assuming there’s more since I saw lots when I canceled the first run?
