  1. Hi Augeas, In the meantime I tried a second recovery tool and the result is identical, which means that most probably the data is gone, as all files recovered seem to be overwritten with a similar pattern. It is not '00' or 'FF', what I would expect, but a repeating string. My guess with the encrypted disc is probably wrong as I can read from the disc, so I assume that the data (even the deleted one) is decrypted correctly. The files were deleted by 'WinMerge'. Maybe this tool is not just marking deleted but actually overwrites the data, or then, you are right, it's because it is a SSD. After deleting I did not do anything on the disc, as it is a pure data disc. The chance of being overwritten is approx. zero. But of course, I don't know what a SSD does on its own. I'm trying to recover some data on an external HD, deleted by windows explorer, lets see if this works... Thanks!
  2. Hi, I tried to recover some files (.VHD) from my ssd, I could find them, the state is claimed to be excellent, no cluster overwritting, the folder structure is regenerated, but when opening the files with an editor they are not readable. I wonder if this is because I use the free version, maybe this does show the files but does not recover them without buying a license? The drive is encrypted (bit locker), could this be the reason for the problem? Please see the attached file Do I need to buy a license? count_down.vhd
