Recover Multiple Files

Top  Previous  Next

If R-Linux while recovering files encounters either an already existing file or file with a broken name, normally it will stop working and ask you what to do with the file. If you recover multiple files, that may require you answer a lot of the same questions. You may use Mass File Recovery Options on the Recover dialog box to instruct R-Linux what to do in those cases for all files.
