User Bigbaby posted on forum.piriform.com - Recuva freezing?

"I am running Recuva deep scan on an external hard drive of ~600GB. After running for an hour or so, it finds tens of thousands of files but still says that the scan is 0% complete and that it won't be finished until 8 days from now...How long does Recuva deep scan take? I am thinking that the program is freezing."

Besides, there's another User 'rjo98' posted on forum.piriform.com, he says Recuva stuck on stage 1.

How to Fix Recuva Deep Scan Stuck or Freezing Issue Effectively

Basically, it's hard to tell what exactly causes the stuck problem while using deep scan option in Recuva to find lost data on hard disk or some removable storage devices. But, we can make some assumptions.

  • Are there bad sectors on your hard drive partitions?
  • Has your hard drive partition been corrupted or damaged?
  • How large is your hard disk which Recuva's deep scan is working on?
  • Have you used encryption software like BitLocker or TrueCrypt to encrypt your drive?

Most likely, hardware issues prevent deep scan from proceeding. What's more, scanning enormous data on a disk makes deep scan halt midway, which demands days and nights to accomplish. So, you can do nothing but wait.

Or perhaps it's time to change your mind, download a better piece of deep scan data recovery software to make the endless Recuva deep scan end. EaseUS data recovery shall become your first choice to replace Recuva, so as to fix the stuck and freezing error with minimum effort.
