    Hi,

    First, please don't type in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. 

    Second, yes, you can recover deleted media files by batch capturing or batch importing them.  If the media came from a tape, use batch capture (this assumes you still have the tapes, and that they were captured with timecode).  If the media came from a file, use batch import.

    Look up batch capture and batch import in the manual or online help for details about these procedures.

    good luck,
    Carl

    Re: RECOVER DELETED MEDIA FILES

     If you have deleted the actual OMFI and/or MXF associated media files without back-ups or "mirroring", I'm afraid the answer is no. Your only option is to re-capture or re-import from the original media sources, as Carl pointed out.

    Re: RECOVER DELETED MEDIA FILES

    I know this is an ancient post.

     

    But I actually encountered the same problem. I tried Data Recovery but it didn't scan for OMF files, so my question is this. Is there any software that can scan specifically for deleted OMF files?

    Re: RECOVER DELETED MEDIA FILES

    You need software that can do a RAW search instead of searching for specific file types. RAW will get you everything that is on the drive which (i can tell from first hand experience) is not always funny and handy as it retrieves partial data as well ...

    Easy Recovery never let me down so far.. besides that one time where the drive was actualy spit in 2 pieces Wink

    Good luck!

    Re: RECOVER DELETED MEDIA FILES

    Thank you very much! I hope it will work. The data was always on an external drive that I never formatted, I just cleaned out the Avid project related files. So If I can get them back, then , awesome Smile

    Re: RECOVER DELETED MEDIA FILES

    Does it usually take forever for it to display the files? In the status Easy Recovery says Building Trees , the CPU consumption shoots up to 100%. I can minimize the window, maximize, click on Home option, so I think it is doing something..

    Yes depending on how big the file tree is it can take a long time to build an index. It has to scan every single sector on the disc so that takes time :). Most of the times it is step one in recovery.. after it builds an index you can then select what it is you want to recover and it will again take a lot of time to get the data back.

    like watching paint dry huh?

    Re: RECOVER DELETED MEDIA FILES

    The best way to recover files is not to delete them ;-) You can use R-Studio, Recuva, they are good utilities for recovering deleted files. But, most of all I prefer Advanced File Recovery on http://www.advanced-file-recovery.com/. It recovered almost everything valuable on my deleted, formatted and partially overwritten HD. And its quite easy to use.

    Re: RECOVER DELETED MEDIA FILES

    I know, but back then I had no plans to continue or revisit that project.

     

    Advanced File Recovery? I'll give it a go, I tried OnTrack Easy Recovery but to no avail.
