Estimated Time to Complete

#1 Post by LisaB » 09 Mar 2016, 19:45

I have been running the TestDisk & PhotoRec software over night and it is still saying that the estimated "Time to complete" is showing 50+ hours. I am running the Win 64 bit program and made sure that was appropriate for the system that is running this scan. I am trying to recover lost images/data on a Micro SD card. Is this time requirement normal? Is there anyway to tell if anything is/has been found while the scan is occurring?
Thanks in advance for your response.

It seems very slow. PhotoRec shows the number of files recovered and you can consult them in the recup_dir.1, recup_dir.2... directories

Any suggestions as to what I could do to speed up the process or something else I can do to utilize this scan!!
