My mom’s external hard drive got formatted and now I’m trying to recover her files. I used various data recovery software suggested in another forum such as
iCare Data Recovery
It took my around three hours just to scan it and the results showed me that they have recovered files that are up to 17gb but these files are not the files of the hard drive. I got different file extensions such as
zip files that I can’t open
shockwave flash files
It’s very frustrating already and I’ve been trying to recover the files for over a week. What more can I do?
