Decrypt recovered Veracrypt Files


I think I did they are now saved in an external drive in this folders
(recup_dir.1 to recup_dir.915) but when I explore those folders there are a lot of encrypted and unsorted files or at least they look like that . There is a way to decrypt them and restore them?
I am thinking seriously in cryptography experts companies to help me if you may recommend me something
I appreciate your time and help.
I Hope you could help me .. Thank You

Based on your thread on SourceForge at the link below, you had a file container with your data inside the file container that you accidentally deleted. The Photorec software recovered the file container as files/directories 1 through 915 correct?

If Photorec properly recovered the file container, it should be one large file that you would mount in VeraCrypt.

When you accidentally deleted the file container, was the file container mounted in VeraCrypt? If yes, this will make recovery more difficult since the file container may have been damaged during the delete.

Hello Jesus,

What other recovery software did you attempt to other than Photorec?

Have you tried these recovery software?
  • GetDataBack
  • R-Studio
