If your file type is not available and PhotoRec didn't find it, you can ask/suggest it to the developer;

Also you can have a try to add your custom signatur;

Hi Fiona
.dng files are listed as supported on the main page for photorec there just doesnt seem to be an option in photorec for it im guessing its grouped together with another file format like the raw picture files i was just wondering if some one knew which one

Probably it belongs to a file family?
Did you test PhotoRec 6.14-32bit?

Yeah I did test 6.14 but still didn't have the option so it must be in one of the family's just cant work out which one

Did you ever resolve this issue? I'm dealing with the same question. I've also been seeing .dng files appear and then suddenly disappear in the recovery directory...did you ever notice that behavior?

Thanks.

dng are in the TIFF file family.
If you have the problem of appearing and disappearing dng file in recup_dir.*, try using the latest 6.14-WIP version and if the problem persists, please send me some unmodified dng file taken with your camera.
