More recovered file than saved

#1 Post by vargad83 »

I use Photorec, and its said recover 5318 file with 49,9 GB size, but in the destination folder I have five recup_dir folder, with 1989 file with 11 GB size.
Somebody can help me, where is the missing 38,9 GB data?
I use Ubuntu, and the hidden files are visible, so I have no idea...

PhotoRec doesn't display the total size of the recovered files.
Please post the exact message you want and the photorec version.
Use photorec 7.0 or better 7.1-WIP, explains how to install latest version.
