  1. I have a 16GB Ram PC with a dedicated SSD for Windows 10 and a 1TB drive for work files.
    I needed to reinstall Win 10 and due to a EFI drive C formatting issue, it installed to my work files hard disk overwriting file table.
    Cloud backup stopped months ago without notifying me... 
    I purchased Recuva and scanned the 1TB work file drive and was on day 4 of renaming and sorting recovered files (without turning the PC off).
    All looked as good as possible until last night the PC apparently rebooted... so now I'm waiting another 5 hours for a second deep scan.

    Suggestion: Since Recuva can almost instantly find all the files of a given type, when filtering per extension, it seems it must create a file allocation table with the results of its scan.
    If it does, why can't this be saved avoiding the need for repeating scans?

    Question: Can I work on my drive C SSD while Recuva deep scans drive D or will this negatively impact scan results - I seem to have read this somewhere, although it was a generic statement which may not apply to a 2 disk drive PC.

    Thank you!
