Re: recover4all didn't really work?
Yeah, the same exact thing happened to me!!! I wonder what caused that - damn, 70 bucks down the drain, not to mention all my songs!!redhouse said:Thanks for the Revocery4all suggestion. I too inadvertantly deleted about 13 gigs worth of music without any backups and at least my music is back...well, kinda.
I ran Recovery4all. It took about 3 days to scan and recover my music. But alas! An interesting thing happened and it probably wasn't worth the effort afterall:
All the music was recovered, as I said, but none of the song names corresponded to what the songs really were. In addition they were spliced with other songs right in the midde, or at the end. For instance, "E-Z DOES IT" and "#### THE POLICE" by Ray LaMontagne. "AJA-NI-KAMBALI (the New Delhi remix)" by Frank Sinatra, and my absolute favorite: "Crack-Ho Gangsta #####es" by Johan Sebastian Bach.
It seems that Recover4all would see the running time of a particular file and randomly insert another file to conform to that running time...so not only are the songs mislabeled but the complete songs aren't even there, rather they are spliced with others.
If there is another step I'm not aware of with Recovery4All then if anyone knows... please let me know. Otherwise, everone who buys this product, like any other data recovery program, BEWARE! All that is solid melts into air.
