I agree with Alan's post.


I have not seen this error before, so I don't really know what is the cause. Have you tried recovering a smaller number of files, for instance 5,000 or 10,000? If this works then you might be able to recover all of the files in a small number of steps.

Is this a space bug, or is this a filename bug?


If you are recovering, be sure to use a short file name such as D:/Recovered, rather than D:/Users/(user name here)/Documents and Settings/etc, etc, etc


Names that are too long will either be truncated, or not be able to be recovered. This is a Windows limit on name length.
