exFAT partition with a lot of zero sized files

#1 Post by ogeen » 31 Mar 2018, 10:15

Hi everyone,

I have here a 3TB exFAT partition with a lot of zero sized jpgs on. I know the original path, I know the file name, but the file is simply empty. Is there a way how can I recover these files?

Thanks for any help!

The fastest way may be to delete all zero size files and run PhotoRec on the free space of the partition: run PhotoRec, select the partition, Search, choose [Free] instead of [Whole].
Store the recovered files on another disk, sort the recovered files...
