Hello there! This is my first post, so I hope I get it right
Okay, here’s the thing, and I would THINK that it should be pretty easy to determine if this is possible. I stupidly deleted a file the other day, a simple audio DTS file, an audio track to a movie. So, I’m thinking it can’t be THAT hard to recover just this one file that I deleted yesterday, right…?
Well… In trying to use all these really trick recovery programs, you know what they are, it’s like MEGA overkill! I just want to find ONE file! And, all these programs seem to do is start scanning an entire DRIVE and spitting out like 50,000 files that go back 5 years! DANG! I honestly do not understand why these programs don’t just let you simply SEARCH FOR THE FILE YOU’RE LOOKING FOR! I mean, wouldn’t the person KNOW which file they deleted and want back, right? So, I run these programs and of course my DTS file isn’t in there, but just about EVERYTHING else is from the last 5 years!
Do any of you know just a nice, SIMPLE way to scan for just ONE lost / deleted file to see if it is recoverable? For the LIFE of me, I cannot understand the massive overkill approach of these programs, and even more so, ones complete inability just to search for the one file (or at least the file type) that one wants.
Thank you all kindly for any suggestions or ideas; I very much appreciate it!
