Recovered files unreadable

Recommended Posts

Recuva created the file download-3.pdf which is not a pdf file (when viewing it does not start with %PDF-1.3)

 

Why create junk files? If the file is not a pdf, why give it a pdf extenstion?

It didn't. The extension comes from the file name held in the MFT. Recuva will recover the data clusters exactly as they are on the disk without making any judgement. Whether the contents are any use is up to a human to decide.
