    Hi!
    I’m new here and don’t speak english so forgive me for some errors!
    SO, I have an external e-SATA/USB3.0 box Fantec with inside 4x2TB Samsung drives in RAID5 (6TB total),
    this RAID was formatted from MAC OS so I lost all files, from there I don’t write anything on so all data should
    be there! I’m interested in recovering some (not all) video files shooted with my Panasonic HVX200,
    very importand for me! Panasonic makes split files for 2GB (2min18sec) each one becouse of limitation of FAT file system!
    I have a PRO 2.0.362 version, quick scan find no files, deep scan find some files (talking here about video, not interested in other type of files) naming them something like file0001.mxf etc, the problem is the video is ok for some seconds (1-30sec) and then there are color squares, see first picture.

    All recovery methods find even structure of files/folders:

    Perfect, BUT! See file size on next picture:

    Disk Drill find files and show correct size but after recovering them the size is smaller!
    Question to developers: how can I or Disk Drill recover complete files?
    Thanks!

    Another question (maybe a bug):
    http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/196/q4bx.jpg/
    After 18hours of scanning the session file size is the same, why?
    And if I hit Resume button, Disk Drill save sassion and do nothing, see pic!

    there is no Resume button anymore! Why?
    I think it is becouse Disk Drill found some files that aren’t read properly and give “too large ^___^” result! OK! BUT! I don’t need those files, I need a folder that have 243.95GB! Lets say the scanning would be possible, could Disk Drill recover complete 2GB files?
    Thanks!

    I had a similar problem, but I was able to solve it. How you lost your files? Reformatted the drive? How was filled drive? When last did a disk defrag?

    Riko, I’ll start from the end. Resuming can only work on Deep Scanning, other recovery methods cannot be resumed. Other than that…

    Riko said: Panasonic makes split files for 2GB

    If you can’t use Quick Scan, and only Deep Scan is available, most probably you won’t be able to recover the original files, only parts of it.

    Can you send the screenshot of how your RAID is seen by Disk Utility now, and Disk Drill’s log?

    Riko said: the problem is the video is ok for some seconds (1-30sec) and then there are color squares

    See above, if your files were fragmented, Deep Scan will not pick them up intact, as the disk map is lost.

    Is there a problem with this?

    Riko said: And if I hit Resume button, Disk Drill save sassion and do nothing, see pic!

    Can it be that the scanning is just over?

    Riko said: OK! BUT! I don’t need those files, I need a folder that have 243.95GB!

    What exactly happens when you recover the complete folder?

    Please, send a reply to help@cleverfiles.com, forum topic is not the best way to discuss such a topic in details.

    Hi Lexx! I lost my files by accidentaly reformatting the drive… The drive was filled by half cca! Never did defrag before, it is my work drive so I was cared to do such of operations on it! 🙂
    Sorry for my english! 😉
