One of the basic data recovery rules is to verify the recovered data

Most data recovery tutorials insist on verifying the recovered data, but usually most people ignore it. So the following scenario may happen:
  1. you recover files and the folder tree seems good enough,
  2. the disk is formatted or disk data is destroyed some other way,
  3. then you see that the restored data is not recovered properly.
It is evident you need to restore disk content once again. Unfortunately, the original hard disk content does no longer exist.

To sum up the above - it is needed to verify the extracted data first and only then begin to fill the original disk with new files.
