recovering AWR / RAW file deleted from SanDisk SD Card via Photorec

#1 Post by ellipse »

Hello! I tried to recover a deleted AWR file from a SanDisk SD card using Photorec.

Photorec saved 1 file in .apple file format.

The file is 121 GB, almost the size of the entire SD card. The deleted file was approx 21 MB, an uncompressed RAW file.

Can I retrieve the AWR file from the .apple file? If yes, how do I open .apple?

Is there a better way to retrieve a deleted AWR file using testdisk, or using photrec?

thank you!

"awr" is not a file format recognized by PhotoRec:

You will either need to create a custom fingerprint for this file or find another software that recognizes this file format.
