Accidentally deleted files, can't get them back

Description

I accidentally deleted all my pcgen save files when I updated to the latest version. I managed to get them back using FonePaw Data Recovery, but now I can only open a tiny few of my sales files, and I can't tell which ones. When I load one, it says "Cannot open PCG file. Can't find sources for (this character)". Also, all my save files seem to have been duplicated: "Fighter 1.pcg" and 'Fighter 1_1.pcg". Sometimes one of the two work, sometimes both do, most times both don't work. I don't know what to do. Have I lost all my characters?

The Backup Character option is not turned on by default, but did you have this set?

If you have the files recovered, then I’m afraid that is what you have.

If you want, you can upload the recovered files that aren’t loading and I’ll take a quick look at them. No promises that I’ll be able to restore them though.
