Recuva Crashes


Recommended Posts



I downloaded the latest edition of Recuva and installed the .exe on a portable USB drive. All the previous versions ran without a hitch, however, with this version when I scan the USB drive on which the program is located it gets to 80-odd% then hangs. The first time I ran it, it mentioned something about Dr Watson and debugging, then after dismissing it I've never seen that warning.


It does still hang, and I have to force it to close through Task Manager. I haven't got any error logs because its on a USB stick, but I pulled this off Event Logger.

Strangely it doesn't crash when I get it to scan the hard drive, only when it scans the USB drive on which its installed on.


My System:


AMD X2 64 4800+ (Skt 939), ASUS A8N-SLi Deluxe, 2GB DDR3200 RAM, 300GB HDD, 2x128MB 6600GT in SLi.

Does the same happen if you install recuva to the C: drive then use that install to scan your USB drive?


To answer your question, I haven't tried that. But if I get it to scan the C Drive from the USB drive (G) it doesn't crash at all and works perfectly. It only crashes when I get it to scan the usb drive on which it is running from. With the previous Betas, there never used to be a problem with scanning the USB drive.


Heres a sequence of events to help:


- Installed on a USB thumb drive (G drive)

- Open Recuva from "G Drive"

- Scan "G Drive" - the drive on which Recuva is installed on and running from

- Stops at 80-odd %

- Crash, get above post error message in Event Viewer.

Just to update the Recuva team, I've tried the latest download of Recuva and it still freezes at exactly the same point: 80% and 1722 files.


I ran it in debug mode and got this from the debug error log:


[2007-07-23 10:28:35] [iNFO ] Recuva v1.02.091

[2007-07-23 10:28:35] [iNFO ] System Info: MS Windows XP SP2, Intel? Celeron? CPU 2.53GHz, 959MB RAM,

[2007-07-23 10:28:41] [ERROR] Exception: DriveNamesEnumerator.cpp(46) : The device is not ready.


It looks like I'm suffering the same problem as "Bobz" in the previous thread.

Hi milanbb55, can you confirm if Recuva was on the USB drive when you ran it?




Just to keep you updated MrRon, I've just downloaded the latest version (.095) and I still have the same problem. I've also noticed that when I Recuva to scan my HD from my USB drive, it doesn't go beyond 0% and 0 files. The progress meter briefly comes up and then in about a second its gone.


If you want I can do another video of this for you.
