Handling large files (> 4GB) is buggy


Recommended Posts



the implementation of large file handling is unfortunately flawed. Scanning a folder / drive for deleted files > 4GB will return the files with a filesize of 0 and unrecoverable.


To reproduce the bug simply delete a large file (greater than 4 gigs, e.g. a HD Video), scan the folder with Recuva and see for yourself. Dont' forget to activate "Show zero byte files" in the options dialog, elsewise you won't see the file at all.


Recuva version tested: 1.32.444

OS: WinXP 32-bit SP3

Filesystem(s): All NTFS

Please be so kind to investigate the issue to further improve this great program.
