  • Cloned File Scanner deleted originals

    Hello folks,
    I used the Cloned File Scanner to free up some space.
    Tested first if it does delete only the duplicate of a file, which was successful (deleted only the clone). Now started to clean my whole HD and noticed after a few minutes that it's deleting the originals too.
    Stopped it and tried to restore the data via Windows Restorepoint, but without success :*(
    Almost all of my music is now deleted bunch of pics...
    Dont know what to do, is there any way to revert this? or are they lost?

    Welcome to the forum.
    You should try the undelete function in the ASC Toolbox. Please remember that the more you use your pc the less chance you have of recovering
    files, as they could be overwritten.
    Hopefully Iobit will have some explanation as to why your original files were also deleted.
    To err is Human. To really mess things up you need a PC.

      I'd like to ask please. Is there a log for users to submit to aid developers in pinpointing the cause of this issue? I mean, so this could be prevented in the future.
