  1. Even if it's a "lost" partition that Windows sees as only raw data? That shouldn't be happening. At the very least, being able to pause a scan for cooling might be helpful. An option to automatically pause after X minutes of scanning then resume after Y minutes of cooling might mitigate overheating issues. Or if adding the ability to monitor the drive temperature isn't too far beyond the scope of Recuva, an option to pause scanning when temperature rises above X and resume once it's dropped down to Y would be even better. In any case I'm setting up a fan to blow across my drive dock
  2. It would be extremely useful if a scan session could be paused, saved, and resumed, so that if a scan needs to be interrupted for whatever reason a user doesn't have to start the process completely over. I was scanning my 4TB harddrive, but after it sat at 31% without any progress for nearly 4 whole days, I decided to check the drive temperature and found that it was 118℉. I decided that the drive must be overheating, so I cancelled the scan and am letting the drive cool. (It might also be getting hung up on bad sectors, so I'm going to try cloning the drive and seeing if recovery software
  3. In my experience, devices that can function as independent portable devices, e.g. tablets and cell phones (let's call them "handhelds"), tend to communicate with an attached PC less cooperatively than something more "PC" like an external harddrive. A USB-connected harddrive will usually behave as if it's part of the PC's internal system, while a handheld seems to usually have an additional layer of abstraction between its file system and the PC. I have an MP3 player that responds resistingly to having a "New Folder" renamed directly on the device, so I'll usually name an empty folder on my P
  4. It's possible that some files were heavily fragmented and for whatever reason recuva couldn't quite put the right pieces together. I'm just theorizing on this next point on how Recuva might work, but one of many possible methods of data recovery is to locate and identify a table of contents (addresses of files on a disk) which might be "current," or might be an old version (from before some files were moved or otherwise rewritten), or might be partially corrupt, and then use this table to locate files. As a simplified example, a file might have an address of 12345, which in binary is 1100000
  5. I'm currently in hour 29 of Stage 1, have "3 days remaining," and the progress bar has been stuck at 31% for the last 20 hours. I'm new to disk recovery (in practice) and have been reassured that this is normal behavior for recovering a large drive. No doubt then this could take even longer than 3 more days, but I can't help but getting antsy with a progress bar that isn't moving. Understandably recovery scans can take a very long time to complete, especially on a drive that is multiple terabytes large (this one is 4TB). This brings me to my feature request: If at all practical, a progres
  6. It's possible that the wrong content was recovered, either because it had at some point been overwritten or maybe an older file pointer was used, or some other unfortunate corruption. I had a harddrive recovered using some other software (I'm not sure what, my brother did it for me), and maybe 5-10% of the files had the wrong content, e.g. an image file contained zero image data but instead a chunk of text that looked like it probably came from my web browser cache. To confirm whether your recovered file is corrupt, you can try opening it with MediaInfo (download the "without installer" p
