    recovered data

    I've searched the forums and haven't come up with an answer.

     

    I inadvertantly deleted everything on my media drive. I used a data recovery tool and restored most of the media to an outboard drive. Now all my files are in the root of this outboard drive. I tried relinking a sequence and some media files from within Avid with no luck. 

     

    What am I missing?

    Re: recovered data

    Assuming you are talking about avid media, not quicktimes or other ama'd material--

    Avid will not see files in the root.  Put them into a subfolder with this structure drive:/Avid MediaFiles/MXF/1 (or any other numeral)

    But don't get your hopes too high.  Video files are notoriously unrecoverable.  Best of Luck

    Re: recovered data

    Thanks, that worked. I recovered about 80% of my video. Trying the data recovery tool a second time to aquire the critical files it missed the first time.

     

    I really don't want to ask our CEO if I can shoot her again.

    Glad it worked out so far.
