    I was recording a gig the other day and the power was cut off on me before saving the last set! How can I recover the audio? I tried Disk Drill recovery app, and it recovered some files from a previous gig, but did not find the newer ones. Any tips?

    The official recovery procedure is described here: Qu-Drive Recording Recovery Procedure
    If you already used another tool, that procedure may no longer work.
    In any case you should see the files within the directory path and they should be empty (since the headers were not updated correctly due to the power loss). If you do not see the files, some other, maybe automatic, “recovery” mechanism may already have eliminated them. The more modern OS you’re using, the more likely you have such “intelligent” auto-recovery running in the background.
    Tip for the future: Always run Qu+dSnakeStuff via USV…

    Yeah, this wasn’t a paid or critical recording, but one I’d like to have. Is there a Mac recovery untility? I don’t use windows…

    Thanks,

    I guess the Mac auto-“recovers” immediately when connecting a drive. Once happened, its probably too late for real recovery…
    The pure samples are still there, but without knowledge of the cluster chaining (FAT content) recovery of the files probably only can be made manually.
