Data Recovery Issues after restore

Hello everyone.

I have a western digital which I had stored videos from my macbook pro using the software final cut pro.

About a week back the hard drive crashed and I took the external hard drive and attached it to a PC running windows 7 and ran a recovery program called EASEUS recovery. I was successful recovering the the videos , but I can't play the videos neither on a mac or pc. Keep getting an error that the file is invalid. Is there a special software or a particular way to run recovery which would enable me to recover the videos properly.

All help is appreciated

I would contact the maker of the software you used for assistance. They probably used a file system locked to their software and should be able to tell you how to make it readable again. If they can't help you I would contact WD for help. Save the drive -- you may need to recover again.

Use free tool called Disk Drill, to recover your deleted videos. It's very important to preview your files before recovering.

If you can not open the video, that means the video was not recovered completely. Try other better video recovery program like Card Data Recovery.

Ok the issue is the data was lost on a mac and the recovery was done using a windows pc that is the reason the files seem to be corrupted. Is there a software or solution to convert it back to mac format.. thanks


Probably not, because you now have a corrupt file structure, It can not simply be fixed by converting to mac format.
