    I am new here and im not sure where to post this. I have a SanDisk 8GB SDHC memory card. I have run Mini Tool Power Data Recovery registered with tech license on it multiple times. Among all the other files it recovers it has recovered 2 files the same size. The size of those 2 files are 13437.26TB. My question is how can you put files that size on a 8GB sd card and how in the world can i find out what it is. I have nothing close to that kinda of memory.

    The ability of data recovery software to find/recover files varies based on the type of corruption or damage which was done to the media.

    The two files in question are obviously not real. The software is misreading the data.

    Not all recovery software is equal. It's not uncommon for different programs to have different abilities. And they will all, at some point, find/recover garbage that they believe to be an actual file.

    Yeah i can imagine what it could be. I have run different data recovery on ot and mini tool is the only one that brings it up and i have run it 100 times and it does every time. Can you recommend a really good data recovery program. I have tried alot. Some of the data trace like Kernel is pretty good. Preferably something i can try before i buy. And thank you for your time

    I've only used EaseUs Data Recovery (not free) and TestDisk.

    Having said that, I've played around with most of the major brands, and from what I recall, they all allow the tool to function for testing. But they only allow you to scan and see what is found, they won't recover data unless you buy a license.
