Files skipped due to size

#1 Post by qnapTS469pro » 03 Dec 2017, 09:44

I'm trying to recover files from my Qnap NAS Partition that runs on a raid 5.
When I try to recover jpg, mov, and tiff (I'm interested in .NEF) I find the following in the output log:

Code: Select all

recup1_dir.1/f91502296.jpg	 91502296-91502552
File should not be bigger than 52428800, stopped adding data
File should not be bigger than 52428800, stopped adding data
I call the program with the following parameters:

Code: Select all

/share/Public/testdisk-7.1-WIP/photorec_static /log /d recup1_dir /logname recup1.log /cmd /dev/md1 options,mode_ext2,fileopt,everything,disable,jpg,enable,mov,enable,tif,enable,search
The external USB drive that I use for recovery is formatted with HFS.
Any idea would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

PhotoRec stops the recovery of the actual file when a new file is found or when the filesize exceeds a specific limit. It doesn't skip file recovery.
As you have disable almost all file formats, PhotoRec has more difficulties to find new files.
