    Default Data Recovery

    The USB may have dropped power and the search results and the drive are longer in synced.

    Use the "Save Session" button (RMFv5) to save the list of search results to a .rsv file.

    Then make sure the problem USB is connected and the drive is recognized in Windows disk management.

    Close and reopen RMF and use the Load Session button to load the .rsv file.

    You should now be able to save and open your files.

    Hello and thanks for the reply...
    i did try that but when i reload my session,i get some "binary" error and i can't save files.Plus i'm pretty sure the usb drive was working and was recognized in disc management, do you have any other hints since it's pretty strange, i can read all my files in the preview/search tab in the program... thanks
