Just dropping by to drop a small warning.
bkweibley, be aware that when it comes to data recovery, there's never a guarantee that you'll ever get your files back. You could try every data recovery program/tool that exist, it doesn't mean that you'll get your files back. This is why you have to be really careful when deleting files, and be sure that you won't need it anymore, since the chances of recovering it can be quite low. Of course, there's situations where data can be easily recovered, but these are rare and also "situationals". It's always important to keep back-up of your files so if something ever happen to them and they end up being deleted, you can restore them from that back-up. This being said, Piriform, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard and GetDatabackNTFS portable are the three main programs I recommend when someone wants to recover deleted files. Also, about the message Recuva gives you, it's probably some kind of sketchy method to convince you to buy their product, since it was "so good" that it managed to recover a full media file in "perfect condition".
Other than that, good luck with the recovery!
