Recuva can't find WIndowsImageBackup file in Recuva Posted August 28, 2019 44 minutes ago, Augeas said: It appears to have located a folder. Recuva doesn't list folders explicitly, but lists files and then builds up the folder structure (if required and requested) in a chain-back process. Deleted folders, as far as I can establish, are cleared of their list of files by NTFS, so finding a deleted folder is of little use, it's just a name. You are of course free to use whatever software you want to aid any file recovery. What do you mean "chain-back process"? Will I be able to restore this file with Recuva?
