    I accidently deleted important files for making of short film and recovered it two days after using cmd. I recovered the files completely with the right file size and everything except for one problem..... It can't be viewed/played and doesn't show any codec. It says "The file isn't playable. That might be because the file type is unsupported, the file extension is incorrect, or the file is corrupt." I already tried various repair tools but nothing seems to work. Is there any way to recover my files back? :<

    Sorry to the bearer of bad news but, it is not that uncommon for a recovered file to actually be so badly corrupted that it is impossible to repair. :(

    Afraid not, no. That's why backups are so important. If you have a file that you cannot afford to lose, make at least two copies of it. One to keep close, in case you need it right away and another copy offsite just in case there is a disaster, (fire for example).
