Can photorec find more pictures?

#1 Post by ammano » 16 Nov 2014, 15:29

So in January 2012. I accidentally deleted files dating from November 2011 to January 2012. I was 14 at that time so I didn't know about photo recovery so I took more pictures. 3 years later, I found Photorec, when enabled brute force, it found pictures dating all the way from May 2011 ( when we first got the camera) but it only found 614 files and of those 614 files, it didn't find the pictures I was looking for, so tell me, can Photorec find more pictures.

Unfortunately I don't think it's possible to recover more pictures.
The older pictures you have been able to recover using PhotoRec were probably stored at the end of the memory card.
The 2012 pictures you want to recover have been overwritten by new ones.

Oh, I forgot to mention. The 614 pictures I was talking about, half of the pictures Photorec recovered are unviewable with photo gallery, does that mean those pictures are really corrupted or damaged really badly, because I think one of those pictures are the one I am looking for.
