Title: Avast deleted my pictures
Post by: Linused on June 08, 2021, 09:02:45 PM
So I downloaded Avast in may 26th and I just enabled the real time scan and I got back to playing Minecraft. A week or so later I open my survival world and try to look at the nether portal coordinates and when I tried, all of my screenshots were gone, not all of my pictures it was specifically the Minecraft screenshots for some reason. I downloaded Recuva, which recovers your files if they somehow get deleted and I was able to recover some screenshots although some of them were corrupted and could not be opened. But I didn't even get back a fraction of my screenshots, I had at least like 500 screenshots and now I have 30. Please help me these screenshots are over a year old and it means a lot to me.

If your pics were really deleted by Avast, you should find them in the chest.
