How Do I Fix Missing File Extensions for Recovered Files

I accidentally deleted the contents of the Users' folders by selecting the incorrect option on a NAS admin panel (over 10,000 files, I guess). Then I found these files lost file extensions after running a data recovery tool. How can I recover these lost files?

We already know that you have used a file recovery tool and got some files back without file extensions. The problem that you are facing now is you cannot open these files successfully. There are two choices for you - you can try to open these files or run another data recovery with EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.

If you are trying to open file with no extension, you should try the following applications:

1. TrID is a well-known and very efficient file-identifying system. The program is continually being updated continuously and has a growing collection of file type definitions. This indicates that additional file types will be added to its database as they become accessible.

2. Web extension and online versions of Toolsley File Identifier are both accessible. By employing the JavaScript tool on the website, your computer does the detection work when you select this option.

3. You can try Digital Record Object IDentification, and this tool is special in that it can simultaneously identify a large number of unknown files.

If you don't want to use these applications to open the files without file extensions, maybe you can try EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover your files on Windows.
