Help with recovered files names

#1 Post by jcuyeis »

been running Testdisk and find that all the undeleted flac files are given new names that are crytpic (i.e., $RU24MNZ). They cannot be read. Is there a step I'm missing. This also goes for undeleted .jpg and .pdf files

You may have to try PhotoRec instead.
