    Hey, are recovered file fragments important? I recently scanned my flashdrive because of an error and then the file containing them appeared and I started to delete them but I cancelled it before it could delete them all. Is that bad?

    It's not "bad" if you don't want them.

    It depends. Are you missing any important files? If so, you might be able to use some of the file fragments to help reconstruct the missing file(s).

    It depends on how you cancelled. If you instructed the program to stop and then allowed it time to cancel properly, no problem. But, if you simply yanked the flash drive out of the USB port it could definitely do some damage.
