PhotoRec stuck. Please help!

#1 Post by gfichten »

I am running a scan to recover JPG files which were lost to some mysterious mishap.

I am reading from one partition and writing to another.

Running in a cmd.exe (as Administrator) on Windows 10.

After few minutes the program takes around 50% (one cpu) and doesn't seem to be moving.

See screenshot attached.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!!!
