Undeleted files are empty

Post by Deslaum » Sun Jun 03, 2012 6:34 am

Hello eveyone,

I SHIFT-Deleted pictures from tha Canon SD card.

I bought R-Undelete, scanned my card and I was able to find and retreived my files.

The problem is that my files are empty. Even if the date and size seems ok, there's no data in the files.

What do I do wrong?

It looks like the FAT hold the ionformation but the actual file is whipe out.

Any idea?!

Did you look into the Extra Found Files folder? They may be there. If you work under Windows 7, that may be the only option to recover the files, as it really removes much information from a card when deleting files without Recycle Bin.
