PSD images recoverd as inexplicably large files

#1 Post by kennymannmal » 04 Jun 2017, 21:35

Photorec is generating lots of very large individual PSD [.psd] (50-350MB) files that I never created, so large. :shock: I have opened a few of these and not only are they a huge size on the disk but they open as thumbnail-sized images (85x125 pixels, for instance) and the aspect is distorted -- stretched on the vertical. [I'm keeping any that are less that 50MB, to sort through for ones that are appropriately sized, and trashing the rest to prevent running out of disk space.]

To reduce the number of overlarge files, avoid to disable the other file types.

Still getting giant (>2GB) PSD files, that never originally existed. Now also getting equally large .plist and .pdf files.

(I tried selecting all file types accept JPEGs -- which I had already successfully recovered. Now I will try a scan with all file types selected.)
