Photorec running for two days

#1 Post by Sugah »

I have situation similar to one included in another post.
I am trying to recover photos from a microSD Sandisk card. It was working fine in my Samsung S5 phone.
Then I removed it to use it with a camera. Then put it in my Mac to download the photos and video, but was not readable. I thought it was compatibility issue, different partitions maybe. However, back in the phone it was not recognized either and indicated that I need to format it
I found PhotoRec on line and followed the steps choosing raw device.
The program has been running for almost 2 days. I included a screen shot of what I have now.
Is this because I chose raw? Any indication that it is working from what I have displayed?
The hours are counting down and sectors counting up.....but it I am reading this correctly then it will finish in a couple of months.
Any advice or instructions on how to proceed?
Thank you
