Large files after recovery

#1 Post by Kinghovey » 19 Feb 2016, 16:52

I used the program to recover data from my hard drive - ran it twice. It seems to recover several large files (the drive had about 1.5tb) and then hundreds of smaller files (around 1 - 3 kb). None of the files are executable, all appear with strange extensions. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I assume you have uses PhotoRec.
What are the extension of the recovered files ?

The massive files are:
.gpg
.rw2
.tib
.wdp
.ab
.dad
.mp4

The 3kb ones are:
.html
.txt
.java

But none of them are valid. If you try to open them - you get a fail message.
