Manager accounting file recovery

#1 Post by johna1954 » 09 Nov 2016, 12:30

May I start by saying how grateful I am for this programme which has enabled me to recover a lot of lost data. Being new to Photorec I had not appreciated that not all file extensions are recognised but since found out that custom extensions can be added. I am trying to recover files with the extension '.manager'. I have tried to follow the instructions (http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/Add_your ... o_PhotoRec) and added a .photorec.sig file to my 'Home' folder with - manager 0 "MANAGER" as my signature. I have a sample file in my 'Home' folder (sample.manager) but photorec still lists as unknown. I have checked that the 'Custom' option in 'File Opt' is switched on.
I have obviously missed something but not sure what and would appreciate any help you can offer.

Regards John

Can you provide a file sample ? Did you upload one using https://www.cgsecurity.org/photorec/ ?

Hi Cgrenier, thank you for your reply.

When I try to attach a sample file I get "Invalid file extension: sample.manager" so have added as a zip file
sample.zip
Sample backup file of Manager Accounting
(1.09 KiB) Downloaded 34 times
I did try to see if Photorec would recognise the file but it did not with error:

" SHA256: 4a0db7a032e216cd4bea7c6d8a0b376cd925afaaaa11183003367870665b447a
File size: 1569

ERROR: PhotoRec doesn't know this format."

FYI Manager accounting website: https://www.manager.io/

Thanks again for any help you can give.
John

Thank you to those who have looked at my post and downloaded the sample file in an attempt to help. I have been away having surgery so have not been able to view this forum for about a week. I get the feeling that it is not going to be possible to recover these files. Is there anything else I can do?
TIA
John
