Can I delete files during recovery?

#1 Post by chops »

I have a 3TB HDD that I'm running photorec on, seems to running smoothly, files are being identified and movie files have their icons. But the HDD I am copying it to is only 2TB. I dont think it will get full, but in any case can I delete these movie files it has recovered? also lastly is it possible to open these files, to see if they have been recovered correctly? Thanks.

Edit: It seems that you can delete, access just fine. After a search on forum found solution. Sorry for double post!
