Unique Names

#1 Post by Kiyonari » 06 Mar 2014, 22:12

Hi guys,

First can I say excellent software, brilliant work.

My question is does photorec give each recovered file a unique name, or if all the directories "recupdir" were to be merged, would there be filename clashes?

Many thanks :mrgreen:

You can move the files, the filenames are uniques.
Potentialy, you may have duplicated jpg thumbnails, the files are identicals, so you can overwrite them if necessary.
