Photorec Saved Session

I am recovering an external WD hard disk with Photorec.

I was recovering data with Photorec. I saved testdisk directory to other hard disk. Then I had to reinstall Windows OS. I copied testdisk directory which was running photorec that I had saved earlier back to my pc. Now, photorec cannot recover data from where it left off. Photorec is reading that hard disk, showing progression in sector, but not recovering files.

The drive letter/device name may be different than previously.
If you still have the original session file, you can edit with notepad++ or wordpad.
If you don't, you probably will have to restart the recovery from scratch.
