restore whole folder structure too

Post by linus » Tue Mar 22, 2016 11:39 am

Hello Forum,

I found/located the files to be recovered with Find/Mark(the files are stored in different folders around the NTFS-filesystem) and manually marked the
recovery candidates. Since it's important to recover their parent folder structure too, i marked the option (x) Restore folder structure.

I tried the option "Recover" and "Recover marked" but neither does recover the whole folder structure...

Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong?


Any feedback is appreciated very much!

Linus


PS
I am unsing RStudio for Linux 3.91837

I tried it with 7.8 build 160829 under Windows 7. Same problem: only the current folder is restored and not the parent folder structure...

It depends what tab you're on when you select to recover the data. If you have it sorted by file type, it'll recover sorted by file type. What you should do is check mark the files you want, then go back to the main file tree view, check the parent folders containing the wanted files and recover from there.
