Recuva software frozen and stuck in the deep scan process might be error that most users complained. Recuva will offer you deep scan option when you cannot find the target files in the quick scanning result. Deep scan is a far more thorough method, which takes a lot longer to search for deleted, corrupted, even overwritten files on your drive.
According to Recuva support, files in the deep scan result will be listed like +, which means your deleted data will not named as before. That is to say you cannot identify which file is the one you want to recover. And the deep scan mode can only identify the files in the below formats:
Graphics: BMP, JPG, JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF
Microsoft Office 2007: DOCX, XLSX, PPTX
Microsoft Office (pre-2007): DOC, XLS, PPT, VSD
OpenOffice: ODT, ODP, ODS, ODG, ODF
Audio: MP3, MP2, MP1, AIF, WMA, OGG, WAV, AAC, M4A
Video: MOV, MPG, MP4, 3GP, FLV, WMV, AVI
Archives: RAR, ZIP, CAB
Other file types: PDF, RTF, VXD, URL
