Unable to get mov/mdat

#1 Post by spamjack » 01 Aug 2018, 18:52

Hi everyone,

I am trying to rescue video files using the "Recover mdat atom as a separate file" option (PhotoRec 7.1 WIP).
When I select it alone (all other FileOps unchecked), it found no file.
When I select mov/mdat plus just mov, it found a number of mov files (working mp4 videos).

Am I missing any option that's causing the mdat to be not output?

The option "Recover mdat atom as a separate file" works only for some videos that are generated in 2 file fragments.
It's not the case of your camera.
