Hi fastdudez28...

What happens when you try the file? Do you get an access denied or permissions error?

Can you choose a small file and attach it here for me? Zip it before you try to attach it.

Well...those were pretty well shredded. :whistling: I can see why they won't open, there really nothing left to open.

Do you still have the raw data that was recovered...or better yet, the drive they are on so we can try another recovery using a different recovery application?
