We are waiting for some time while the program will conduct a full scan of the data recovery system or selected areas. If the option “Enable in-depth analysis” was not selected, then the whole process will be quite fast, but the search results may not be complete. The duration of the scan also depends on the size of the files being recovered.
After processing the information, the utility will give you a summary – a window of scanned files with different recovery probabilities. In advanced mode (in the figure above), you can refine the search parameters – view the file before recovery (if Recuva reads it), run a reanalysis, or search in other sectors.
The green status is reassuring, but even if the color is red – do not despair ahead of time and check the box, paradoxes often happen with Recuva.
After selecting the files we are interested in, click “Restore”.
Important: After displaying a table with the results of the analysis and selecting the necessary files for recovery, the program will prompt you to select a folder where the files will be saved after recovery. It is not recommended (!!!) to choose the way to restore Linkedin data to the drive where they were lost, especially if a large amount of information is to be restored.
Additionally, you can connect a flash drive or a free hard drive, taking into account the fact that there should be a little more free space on them than what is required to restore files.
