I deleted a bunch of large DVCpro50 Quicktime movies off of an external Lacie formatted HFS+ These movie files are about 1-2hours each so they should be around 25-50 GB each. I was archiving a copy of a Broadcast.
I accidently deleted them off of the external and emptied the trash. I have not modified the drive since apart from trying to do a recovery on ti by scanning it completely using Data Rescue 3.
There is a setting there to set a maximum file size to look for and I have set it to about 400GB. I have also tried to set it to zero as it says in the manual that this will void it looking for a max file size.
I was hoping that someone else has had this problem and has used some software to get themselves out of this sticky situation...
I does find some of the files. But there was probably about 30 or so that are still missing. I have since done a deleted file scan, after customizing the engine settings some more and it has found some more of the files, but then it had a general error while recovering the lot. So I am trying that again.
I will post results if it do happen to get everything back...
