Recuva Said File Is Unrecoverable
"A few days ago, I deleted some picture files from my PC to save hard drive space. But later, I found I wrongly choosed some family photos that I needed. Then I tried Recuva to retrieve them back. To my surprise, the program found a lot of recent pictures but a majority of those files were said unrecoverable. Are there other programs available to recover or repair 'unrecoverable' files?"
Is It Possible to Recover or Repair 'Unrecoverable' Files
After disk scanning, Recuva usually lists all the found data and shows you whether a file is recoverable or not. The state of unrecoverable means that all data clusters have been overwritten or the file length is zero. But it doesn't always get it right. In this case, unrecoverable doesn't mean that you can't recover deleted or lost files definitely. So, you can also try another data recovery software to check if it can help to recover or fix the 'unrecoverable' files.
