Recuva crashes on Deep scan


Recommended Posts

:blink: I have a problem with the Deep Scan option of Recuva, in that it causes the program to stop working. I am using a Vista home operating system, on a user account with admin rights.


A Microsoft Windows error message is displayed - " Recuva has stopped working. A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available


Recuva works fine when the 'deep scan' mode is not chosen.


I have opened Recuva in the debug mode and copied and pasted what I think is the error log below.

I think that the deep scan is a little flaky at the moment. I've just run a deep scan up to 1% and cancelled it, then set Recuva back to no deep scan, and it failed in stage 2 and went into not responding mode. Cancelled it and reran OK.


There must be more than two users playing with this, no?

I've just used the 'Deep Scan' on my 1GB XD-PictureCard. It took around 10 minutes, but it works OK.


It just doesn't work with my C Hard drive. I've tried beta versions 1.13.307 and 1.13.308 and still no luck. V1.13.308 froze completely and after an hour of 0% progress I cancelled the program.


I've tried to use Recuva on a non-admin user account and still no joy.


Any joy out there?

Now why didn't I think of that? I've deep scanned a 512 mb flash drive with no probs in around 30 secs, found another 160 files. Nothing interesting though!
