  1. 1) That's right the cost implication was for Easeus - my bad. Update - no I wasn't wrong on this - it costs $18 to get the deep scan feature in the wizard of Recuva. Easeus charges $70 after claiming to offer 1 - 2 T of recovery for free, but then allow only 500 M when you use it. 2) Yes it might show more drives because it shows unlettered ones (ok, both modes might show them, but the wizard won't do squat with them) No, you don't have to go into advance mode, but it is more clear what it is doing. 3) I assumed that he might run into what I was running into - the drive did not have
  2. What is a possible drive for not the same drive? Well any external drive large enough to contain the files such as a USB external drive is what I tried to use. So what happened, it allowed me to select all of the files, identify the drive and the location on the drive and then hung up. I finally told it to cancel so the program dumped and 36 hours of recovery down the tubes. I noticed that it has several other problems as well. It had scanned all of the files on all of the drives on the system, not the ones on the drive that I wanted. That one comes up with unknown file system now after it fa
  3. It would seem like the most likely method to create a reformat would be to take the MFT and move it along with supporting info to an unused location on the disk with a director to it, then create a new table with only the necessary basic stuff and the drive would be formatted. Instead they do something quite different and throw away all of the existing information without wiping the disk. If they used that little improvement, they could easily undo an unintentional reformat (uninformed intentional reformat) and put you back in business immediately as long as you did nothing with the drive afte
  4. Yes, this would be really nice to know before hand. If the program will destroy chances of recovery, i would not do it. Perhaps trying another recovery program has already ruined it. Some of the programs indicate that the user should make an image of the drive - of course, that is quite impossible because the system does not recognize the drive at all, let alone image it. I have made the apparently erroneous assumption that the program only reads the data and takes information into memory until it is convinced that the data is there, then rewrites the indices etc. It would make more sense
  5. The problem is that they cannot tell how long it will take, they guess based on the previous file sequence. From what I see, the program does not allow itself to get into endless loops. But if the rabbit trail of data writes is too long or is corrupted so it loops back into itself, they could go for hours, but like I say Recuva appears to have attempted to avoid that problem. But that is all that can be said. I have found only one other program that I tried and it appeared to work (Easeus Data Recovery Pro) - it took almost 40 hours on a 3 T drive which was half full at least. (It really
  6. They say upfront that FAT32 is very difficult to recover. Good luck. Most likely none of them will work, but if you can find out about the file format, you might try a converter to put it into a different format of the same kind such as, for example, mp4 into mpeg or something like that. They might have run into the issue and have a fix builtin to handle it.
  7. Have you actually successfully recovered directories in EaseUS Data Recovery or they show up as they appear on the screen as though recovered? I mean have you actually had them recovered so that you can use them? I am reluctant to spend $70 to buy software that looks like it works on the free trial, but only allows 500 MB to be read so a fee of $69.95 is offered to recover everything - I didn't do the recovery and now it appears that the drive is altered. It can no longer be recognized by other standard programs that could see it before. I missed the limitation and ran for about 48 hours recov
  8. If the 'drive' is not recognized as a drive, Recuva will not see it. You have to use the 'advanced ,,,' mode available to the right end of the bar near the top. I think that will cost you about $18. It will then show you the drives and ask essentially the same questions as the wizard shows as posted by JackAnt. If you have no idea about the workings at that point, you might need some help. I would pick the partition at the beginning of the drive and tell the program to recover everything (ALL). I forget the exact terminology, but it is similar to Recuva Wizard shown by JackAnt in a previous po
