  1. I accidentally overrwrote a file (an HMTL specifically) in a specific folder, but I just want Recuva to scan that folder. How do I go about that? Entering the folder path in the search field does not specify to that folder at all, it just attempts to scan the entire drive.
  2. I've found that Recuva resets both the "date created" and "date modified" on files it recovers. The creation date is unreliable and not important, but I'd ideally like to retain the last modified data on files that I recover. I've been told by Seagate that their recovery software retains the last modification date, but does anyone know of any other data recovery software that retains this?
  3. Well, I was pointed to Seagate's FAQ, and it says this: http://www.seagate.com/services-software/recover/recovery-software/ But I've noticed something about many of the files/folders I've been unable to recover. I was mainly looking in the general listing for all files of a type (like all mp3 or FLAC files), and I'd see multiple copies or very similar of a file, and all or just one of them would offer a preview. But when I'd track down the directory they were in, the file in there would preview. For example, these are the files at the very top of my FLAC files ordered alphabetically: None of the files for the song "Cold" have a preview. But when I go into the directory I have the song in, it offers a clear preview: This seems to be the case for almost everything so far- files that I find in the listing for all of a single type often don't have previews, but when I track down the file in the directory it was saved in, I encounter no issues. What exactly might this be? Are the files not offering previews previous versions or something?
  4. Not sure what you mean by "Sort on folders by clicking the Path column header." Do you mean just selecting a folder and expanding it?
  5. I have a hard drive I'm trying to recover data from (not deleted data). The hard drive is actually undamaged and technically perfectly functional, it's just that all of the data I transferred on it from another (both of the same model, a Seagate, and the new one is a warranty replacement of the one I moved data from) is completely inaccessible through normal means, even though the hard drive properties show the space as being occupied by the exact amount I copied over. I ran a 12 hour+ scan with the trial of Seagate Recovery Suite, and it managed to find seemingly every single piece of data as being good integrity. When I called up Seagate support and asked them questions, I noted how many of the files (mainly audio and image files) didn't have previews, and they both initially leaned towards this meaning the data is damaged or unrecoverable, but then both became unsure, but that the lack of a preview means there's a greater possibility for it (though a preview being present coupled with good integrity isn't a 100% guarantee either.) This has gotten me pretty worried. On the other hand, I've run both Recuva and the trial version of EaseUS on a USB flash drive, and both managed to find all of the photos I recently had on it- photos that I cut and pasted off onto the old drive I transferred data off (which I then wiped), and are now on the new drive where I can't access the data (not that they were gone forever, I had them elsewhere). Despite this drive also not even being plugged in, I got full previews with both programs too. This was really impressive, so I'm wondering that if I could access this kind of data, should I really have any kind of issues with the data on this other hard drive? Should the lack of a preview be any cause for worry, whether on Seagate Recovery or Recuva? I know this is mainly about another data recovery program altogether, but I noticed many files I found scanning my current HD with Recuva showed up as having "excellent" integrity but having no previews, but I imagine for just about all of them, I'd have no trouble accessing (though none of them were image or audio files.) Also, many photos identified as "unrecoverable" have previews, but admittedly, these seem to be previous versions of photos I'm able to recover. Also, I'm curious how exactly I was able to recover all the photos off the flash drive. Again- I cut and pasted them onto another drive, where they were then moved to another drive, and the drive I originally pasted them onto was wiped (and neither were connected when I did the scan).
  6. I know Recuva has an option to include the original folder structure, but in my basic tests (like of my current drive, which is healthy, has comparatively little on it and takes no time to scan), I don't see any identifiable folder structure, it's just a huge list of files alphabetically. Would this only show up if I paste everything in bulk? I think I'd want to prioritize some folders when I do a full scan of a drive I'm having issues with, would I be able somehow identify individual folders to extract? At the same time, when I try to select a type from the filename/path dropdown in the search bar, only selecting "pictures" shows anything, and it's just 2 files (even though I'm able to readily access more pictures than this on the HD.) The drop-down in the search is the only identifiable selection I can see that allows me to select specific file types, and it gives me basically nothing. A few other questions: -Is it possible to order files by integrity/health? -Is file/folder creation and modification history retained? I ran a very, very brief scan of the drive I plan to run a full scan on, got a single file off it, and the data creation/modification dates were reset to the date of extraction. -Can I save a scan for later?
