I Did a deep scan in my external harde drive, to recover my MP4, Mov (video files). The deep scan is finished, but the video files don’t open. The strange thing is that i did watch them in preview mode. In preview mode everything worked fine. My mac version is: 10.5.08 and i used disk drill version 1.8.214. Pro.
Hi Daniel, this does sound weird. It’s impossible that files can be previewed but cannot be recovered. How much time passed between your successful preview and recovery of the corrupted files? Also, can you reproduce this now (preview and then recover again)?
I am having the same problem. I reformatted a drive that had episodes from a TV shows on it. I recovered all of the episodes, however one will not play in quicktime or open with subler. It will however play in preview mode – all the way through. This is a 800MB mp4 file.
