list/filter only existig files

Post by joseph » Sat Nov 29, 2014 3:34 am


I would like to list only existing files according their extensions (click on a partition in questions -> extensions)
In order to be able count and calculate the required space to recover them.

I expect that files like e.g. _testfile.txt (mostly with the same size 4096 on ext4fs) are deleted files)

In order to achieve that, i experimented with "Find/Mark" or "FileMask", but even i marked(x) "Existing Files"
in the "recovery window"(right click).

But looking at the Status line/bar(buttom of the window) this is not the way to go (always the same number of files are shown)

What am i doing wrong?

Any feedback is appreacited. Thank you!

Deleted files are marked with the file icon with a red cross.
We tested the case and found that R-Studio displays the info correctly. When the deleted files are disabled, the number of shown files decreases.
