The video tutorial below will help you more about how to search files:

A file storage is made up of the file directory information (contains the file name, establish time, the storage place of data content, etc.) and the specific data content. The two parts are normally saved on different areas on the hard drive.


If both parts of the file are intact, our program could recover the file with its original file information, including the correct file name and directory. However, if the file directory information has been damaged, the only way to recover the lost files is scanning the file content area directly (it's called RAW Recovery). Then all the found files will be renamed and saved with Red Star and Red Pen in the folders: More lost files(RAW) and Special lost files(Label).
