Finding files from recovery results

#1 Post by Mark »

I ran PhotoRec and got 7 folders of files named recup_dir. All files start with f and then a number and they say what kind of file it is.

How do i find out what these files are?

Thank You

You check them one by one... or at least all the files from the type you where looking to recover.
