RedRaid recover after formatting
on Oct 13, 2008 at 9:18:34 am

Hello all from munich,

yesterday the worst case szenario happend to me during shooting a commercial:
A RedRaid was formatted ( in camera) prior data saving!
Any advices how to restore the Data (about 10GB of 4K 3RD footage)?

I´m using mac (i heard it is probably only possible with an XP-PC).

The Raid was just formatted, after formatting, the raid was not in use any more.
So, no files got overwritten, right?
Just the directory is deleted, right?

Is there a "easy" software based possibility to recover?

Any help could save my sleep the next nights!

Many many thanks,

Emanuel Schwermer

That sounds like a nightmare!
I would strongly suggest calling RED tech support as soon as possible.

Thank you Stuart,
but my prob is, i have to get the project finished by the end of this week.
No time left to send the raid to RED/USA and back to germany.
Fortunately on the raid is not a MUST-HAVE shot, in terms of the surviving of the project, but one of the best (most nicest) shots is on the raid ...
I´m searching for a quick and easy "try-it-yourself-way" to get back my data.
If it would be 50% risk, OK!
I need hints for a "do it yourself" solution!
Sure, if this shots would be 1000nds of $ worth, i would contact a prof. data saving company, but in this case the $$$$ are not existing to pay the prof. company ! (-;
I tried DataRescueII, but the software can not "understand" RED R3D Files!
All the best,
and thank you all for further input!

You could try Data Rescue.

I've tried it before on drives with limited success. Usually stills and images are recovered better than video files.

The more things you try, the less likely it is that you'll get your data off.

I still think at least a call to RED would be helpful.
