Is it possible to recover deleted .ts recording files?

I have deleted some recordings that I would like to watch again

I have tried using some recovery software but it doesn't show any of the .ts deleted files. Plenty of other files just not the .ts ones

Thanks

    I don't think that TS files are different from other file types, so all files should be equally recoverable (or equally unrecoverable).

    I use the Recuva tool to recover deleted files. It has two modes of operation: "normal" and "deep scan" (which can take hours I believe -- I have never tried it). But all undelete tools rely on the disk blocks containing the deleted file not having been overwritten by newer files. So if you delete a file accidentally, immediately stop all actions that might cause further updates to the disk.

    There is effectively zero chance of successfully undeleting a file that you deleted several days or weeks ago from a disk that is in continual use. :(

    Thanks yes i have tried Recuva and Ashampoo undeleters and both do not show the .ts files

    I will have another try and yes as you say leaving it too long can be problematic

    Ok so first a clarification. I can recover .ts files but not the main recording files only the ones from the timeshift buffer.

    Using Recuva in the normal mode or the deep scan mode will not find any deleted recordings. It will find files (like .avi and image files) that are about the same size as some of my normal recordings so I don't think it's a file size issue.

    It also finds all the smaller stuff like .jpg, .xml etc. It will find all the .xml files associated with the deleted .ts recordings just not the main recorded .ts file?

    In all it seems as though .ts recordings can't be found with the programs I have. Maybe some other paid for undeleter might do it?

    I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...

I have been using TVWishlist for years now = repeats are always ignored, new episodes recorded and the ability to add a Title to the schedule long before it actually appears in the...
