    I ran the REDundead program and have pulled footage from the Card. But its only recovering the most recent files starting with A008_... I need to recover A007_...

    Has anyone been able to recover past the last recorded series ?

    Thanks

    If you recorded media on top of the previous material it is unlikely for you to be able to recover it.

    Since this has not been addressed yet in this thread, let me chime in. The fact that you had incomplete transfers suggest you did not use a verifiable transfer solution. So you don't go through is again, may I suggest you use R3D Data Manager to back up your RED files to multiple drives. One transfer is not enough, and next time, please check you transfer, it can save you worry and regret.

    Surely there is a way to recover past the last recorded data ?

    If the data was still on there, Red Undead would likely have recovered it. When you re-record over the card the old data is overwritten by the new as it fills up. If you A008 was a full cards worth of data, there would be no A007 Data left unwritten over to recover.

    Not verifying the transfer was successful during production with a program that does a checksum etc is an accidental equivalent of a mag of film getting flashed and rendered useless. It either happens because the camera loader wasn't competent/expereineced/careful enough, or because of bad on set or transit practices.

    Much like accidentally flashing a mag, if you've accidentally overwritten the data by filling up the same card after not checking the footage was in fact somewhere else, then it is in fact gone.

    In Redcine-x pro, I deleted the R3Ds from the Browser Project window, apparently this deletes the R3D files from the hard drive! Not knowing this I emptied the recycle bin.

    Now I'm trying to get those R3d files back, the external drive works fine, it has not been reformatted, corrupted, or written to since the files were deleted.

    I tried REDundead using this in the terminal redundead /dev/rdisk5 /Users/admin/Desktop/REDundead/

    As soon as I press enter, I get "Done!" with no files recovered.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Exactly the same here. What does "Done !" mean if nothing has been done ??

    I used REDundead in the past without any problems, and I can't see what is wrong here.
