If you receive that message when recovering your file then you are probably recovering it from an external drive like a USB flash drive or external hard drive. If you are recovering your file from an external hard drive, try disconnecting the USB cable from the USB port and then connect it to a different port. Try recovering your file again and see if it works.
This is the same for USB flash drive, transfer it to another USB port then see what happens. If this doesn’t work, try scanning the drive for errors. Download PC Tools Performance Toolkit and install it on your computer. Once installed, start PC Tools then go to “Recovery” tab and click “Repair Drives.” Select the drive from the list then select “Surface Scan” under “Select Drive Operation.”
Click “Start” to begin the scan. If no problem was found, try using PC Tools to recover your file. In PC Tools, go to “Recovery” tab and click “Recover Lost Files.” Select the scan type and the drive. Under “Scan by file type,” you can select the file type or just leave it as is. Click “Start Scan” to begin the scan.
