After recovery I end up with a huge .gz file?

#1 Postby joeriggs » 12 Jul 2012, 14:44

Hello,

I used photorec to try and recover some .r3d (RED one camera) files, I accidentally deleted. After the recovery I ended up with recup_dir.1, 2,and 3. In recup_dir.1 there is a .gz file that is 40 gigs, I am hoping that within it contains my recovered files, however, I can't open it.

When I try to open it, I get "unable to unarchive "file name" into "recup_dir.1".
(error 2_ no usch file or directory).

Are my recouped files in there and how may I unarchive it?

I'm on a mac, running snow leopard, any help is greatly appreciated.

Can you send me a few r3d file samples taken with your camera ? The file format may have evolved since r3d support has been added to PhotoRec.
