How to Find SRT Files?

file recovery after virus attack“Hi all, I had some movies in my pen drive which I had kept in it from many days as I didn’t had time to watch them. One day in leisure hours, I wanted to watch the movies and connected the flash drive to my PC; then I scanned the connected pen drive for any viruses. I deleted some files which could not be fixed. I opened a movie file to watch which was getting played normally. But I could not hear and understand the accent in the video. I tried opening SRT file for subtitles to be displayed but the file was not there. I remember that I had copied it in my pen drive and now it is missing. Please help me restore SRT files without which I cannot make out the movie. Thanks in advance...”

SRT file as mentioned above is used to add subtitles to the video. You need to open SRT file when the subtitle of video is not being displayed. You may come across above situation at times; in this case, the SRT file might have got deleted while scanning for antivirus. If you have any other copy of the deleted SRT file, then you do not bother. If not, then you start searching for a way to get back SRT files. Without SRT files, the movie doesn’t make any sense for you if you can’t figure out the audio properly. SRT files help you overcome the language barrier that checks you from understanding the video. But these files may be lost in various scenarios like below and makes you numb:

  • Format: Formatting drive deletes entries of all files along with SRT files from file system including information of memory location where files are stored
  • Shift + Delete: You might have deleted SRT files using Shift and Delete keys while deleting unneeded files
  • Transfer Error: The SRT file transfer process may get interrupted due to disconnection of drives involved in the file transfer process while files are still being moved from one storage location to another
  • Sudden system shutdown: SRT files may go missing from computer as a result of sudden system shutdown; because entries of file location on file system of computer hard drive may be erased when system shutdown suddenly
