how to recover Deva 5.8 (Zaxcom) deleted data?
on Oct 18, 2009 at 1:34:47 pm

Hi,

I was using a Deva 5.8 for my sound recording purpose. Unfortunately after 5 days of shoot, the folders which had stored audio where erased using the "erase folder" option.

Now I want to retrieve that data. I can see the data in the physical form of .zax files but I am not being able to use them. How do I recover this deleted data?

Please help.


Regards,
Anand

Try ZaxConvert software.

Zaxconvert is only showing me the folders of which data has not be deleted. Basically folders for which data can be converted.

But folders which has been deleted need to be recovered first and then converted.

How do I recover is the question? I have tried many recovery software, like R-Studio they show the data on the hard drive but does not let me recover it. My assumption is that it searches the metadata file, and in that file the deleted folders have been marked as deleted. Hence the recovery software is not being able to detect it.

The metadata file is extension .zzz. But I am not sure how to open that file to edit it.

Need more info.

I misunderstood. I thought you had the .zax files. I'm not experienced in drive recovery. Here are some software options I found http://www.prosoftengineering.com/ and Drive Savers, although I've read they can be expensive.

I do have the .zax files in the hard drive after i do a recovery. But when i use the zaxconverter and add source folder which has all the zax files, it only shows the folder which have not been deleted using "erase folder".

contact Zaxcom and don't do ANYTHING with the drive until you hear from them.
