I can't find my recovered files


Recommended Posts

I have run Recuva several times on a flash drive that was inadvertently formatted.  Each time, I have selected another flash drive as the destination folder for all the recovered files, but when the whole process has finished, my destination drive is empty. I've tried using several different flash drives, including a brand new one with 64 gig capacity. Recuva tells me the files were recovered, but the destination drive is empty.


Is it something I'm doing wrong?

Update: It was something I was doing wrong. I was identifying the type of file I needed to recover when the wizard first started up, but I didn't realize I also had to identify that type of file in the box with the pull-down menu in the upper right corner before I select RECOVER.  The files are being written to the identified destination folder now.
