ONLY RECOVERING 5.71MB MP4 files???

#1 Post by helpmepls » 03 Jan 2014, 15:35

External hard drive lost all my movies, so I was running Photorec. A fair few episodes and movies showed up, but now all I'm getting are 5.71MB MP4 files.

Are these going to be put together later or are they completely useless? Can I delete them? I'm running out of space. :/

PLS HELP

You can delete the recovered files if you want.
When using PhotoRec, it's highly recommended that the destination is as big as the source and you must never use the source as the destination, otherwise PhotoRec ends up by recovering the same file over and over until the destination is full.
