    Hi, I named two external HDs with similar names and deleted the contents of an entire 1.5TB drive I use for media storage. Since deleting the contents from the trash I have been careful not to add any new data to that drive.

    I have used 'Data Rescue 3' in an attempt to recover my media library but only with partial success.

    My music files were fine and showed up in the recovery list. However none of my .MKV files are showing up. The .MKV files were around 1GB-2GB in size. Is there any other software I can use to recover them? At the moment I'm suspecting that because the files were that great in size that they are not recoverable.

    I would greatly appreciate any help with this.

    FileSalvage (trial lets you scan the HDD and see, if data is recoverable, but to actually recover files, you need to buy the full version for 89.95 USD).
    DiskDrill - lets you recover data from HFS/HFS+, FAT, NTFS & other file systems right on your Mac., .​
