    Default Playback recovered files

    I had some recordings (.amr) which were deleted from my cell phone memory card. These were recovered using recover my files professional edition and saved to a disc as VLC media files. I am using the latest version of VLC however I cannot access/play these files even though they are recovered showing their original sizes. Can anyone assist me please as these files are very important to me.

    Hi,

    Change the file extension to .txt and open them in notepad. Do you see an AMR header at the top of the file? (you can do this to a file that you know is a valid AMR file and compare the difference).

    Thanks GDH. I tried that but all I see is gibberish. Dont see anything about amr and there is a big difference between that file and a genuine amr file. I am still stuck and would appreciate any further suggestions.

    OK, try the following....

    Make sure you are using the latest version of Recover My Files from http://download.getdata.com/RecoverMyFiles-Setup.exe



    Run Recover My Files, close the wizard, and click on the OPTIONS button. In the ADVANCED tab put a tick in the box for "Run a lost file search only" and "search over the entire drive.....".

    Now run a new search and select "Recover Drive". Click next.

    In the drive selection window, select the "hard disk" (not the drive letter). Click next.

    In the file type selection window, select and search for just .amr files.

    Look in both Folder and File Type view for your missing amr files. Make sure you check out any file found called a "Lost File".

    The only way to save the recovered files is to purchase the software. You will then receive a license key to unlock the software.
