recover some raw images

#1 Post by WilburFrances »

Trying to recover some raw images. I’m struggling with a couple of things...

after choosing the external drive it says ‘write access for this media is not available’

the files are coming up in red.

I can copy said red files into my desktop or downloads... circa 10k photos, yet when I try to find them they aren’t anywhere to be seen.

Should I use photorec instead? Is it the same process? I’m totally new to this and trying to figure it out using YouTube but I can’t find the answers to these particulars.

Please help. Posted it reddit not resolved. Please share your views on it
