    Disk Drill copied a large number of files it recovered during a deep scan to another external HD. It now seems to be hung, reporting 0.0%. Because my Audio and Documents folders on the external HD seem well populated, and the video folder seems relatively empty, I think it’s hung on a video file. I’m tempted to cancel, hoping to restart recovery, but I don’t know if I will be actually able to restart recovery. Will I be able to restart recovery where I left off?

    If I am able to restart recovery, I’d like to also know if there is some way to know for certain that I can skip certain categories. Is there a way to know the number of files found by Disk Drill in each category?

    update: it seems to think I had a 200GB .zip file and it is still writing to that file, increasing its size. I don’t recall having a 200GB .zip file! 🙂

    update 2: I stopped the recovery. I noticed that you can click “Recovery” to back up a step. Whew!

    Interestingly, some of the .zip files are associated with a size of “too large.” I know not to recover those!

    I am now going to try a more targeted approach.

    Yep, we did notice that bug as well. Once in our tests we were able to locate a 16PB file, which was definitely an inexistent entity. My apologies for that, we are working on a fix in the next release.
