Unicode and Shift-JIS TEXT

#1 Post by NobMiwa »


PhotoRec always save me.
If I saved TEXT file in English with ASCII code, it was recovered.
But PhotoRec cannot recover TEXT file of Unicode(16,8) and Shift-JIS.
I wrote letters in Japanese and its size is about 4KB.

Please comment or please fix it.

Best Regards,
Nobuo Miwa
