Please explain the problem in more details. Have you disable some file types ? Is there some error message ? Is the current sector location always the same or progressing slowly ? Is PhotoRec using 100% of the CPU ? Do you see disk activity ?

Hi, it worked in the end just took 6 hours.
It is a 62 gb memory card so to be expected I spose
However it doesn't find anything on the card 0 files found. Do I format the memory card first and then scan it? As I refused to format it and yet it still finds nothing
