Lost Files.
Permalink   
 


Hi! I am really frustrated right now as I am about losing months of work to the void. I had just finished working on a small arcade game and was looking for a way to

make the assets less accessible by encrypting them. I used Cameyo for that and encrypted my files in the .dat file, 7Gb. Big issue now was that I had two exe which depended on each other to work and "mygame.cameyo.exe" wasn't looking at the right location. While meddling with the directories and options I check the box to delete the files when they where not being used anymore, don't even know why I did that. Result, my work was completely deleted. I have a very old and depreciated backup and the .dat file containing my compressed game, thing is there's no way to find the files, when I open the .dat file directly from cameyo. The exe file doesn't work either, deploy error. Please if I could get any help on how to get back my files.

If you already have software to recover deleted files, run it ASAP (before your deleted files are overwritten) with a focus on the drive that had the files you want. If you do not have that software, get one (www.ccleaner.com/recuva is free and it works well for me), and install it on a DIFFERENT drive than the one that had your files. Expect the recovery search to take some time to complete, and to generate a huge "haystack" of deleted files. Then you need to search through the listing for your precious needles to recover a copy of them (to a different drive than they were originally on). Good luck!

Hi Jim-3 thanks for the quick reply, running the recovery software was the first thing I did, I tried with Stellar Phoenix and Easeus Data recovery but no luck. It just seem like the way the files got deleted makes them impossible to be recovered, I can find older files just fine.
Trying Recuva right now, hope it might be more effective. Thanks again for replying.

Are any of the files you are trying to recover part of a Cameyo package itself, or were they created/edited by a Cameyo package instead?

If the files are part of a Cameyo package, Package Editor should be able to access them.  If the files were never part of the package (only created/edited by the package), the files would go to the sandbox instead.  Of course, if the sandbox was deleted, Cameyo cannot be used to recover them.  Knowing if the files are part of the package will give direction of where to look for them.

It's a single folder I imported into the package editor. The folder was first 10gb then after importing, cameyo package editor created a compressed .dat file of 7gb. I saw it was recommended to create a .dat file for files heavier than 2gb so I did so.
