Why are there no files in my Recuva Professional Edition?

Recommended Posts

I delete files almost daily. I'll admit that a lot of the files are securely deleted, but not all of them by any means. Why are there 0 Files found? 

Okay, I clicked the Scan button. Now it says over 420K files found, but none matches to the filter. Do I really have to do a Deep Scan just to see files deleted unsecurely?

Thank you, Michael

The simple answer is that there are no records in the MFT flagged as deleted that match your selection criteria. A deep scan will not help as it doesn't return any file names, as they are held in the MFT. Securely deleted files (if I remember correctly, years since I've done any) are renamed so they also won't be found, and if they were they would contain zeroes.
