R studio sees the file, but recovers it at 0 gigs.

I'm trying to recover a vdi disk image. R-studio has no problem finding the file name, but it recovers an empty file. What are my best options for recovering the contents, without sending the disk out?

Are you going to recover the file itself or some files from within that virtual disk?
If the first, this is a standard situation for huge files. You have to find the image file using the search for known file types. R-Studio supports the .vdi file format, but ones again, recovery of huge files is difficult. Our article File Recovery Basics: How Data Recovery Works
may help to understand why. Pay especial attention to the section: "Method Two: File recovery using search for known file types (raw file recovery)". And an advice: disable all files except Disk Imges -> .vdi on the Settings -> Known File Types tab.
