Photorec stuck on one sector and one file

#1 Post by egen »

Photorec stuck on one sector and recover one .mp3 file again and again after few hours i have over 500000 same mp3 files so I quit recovery process. Then i try to switch off MP3 files from recovery. But on same sector is another "cycled" file M3U. What shoud I do now? Is there way to skip this sector? Or some switch in options to skip this behavior?
My setting is paranoid yes (brute force no)

Thank for any answer.

Can you double check that you are not saving the recovered files on the source ?
