TestDisk & PhotoRec 7.2 WIP

Post#1 by Rava » 09 Dec 2020, 10:39

Cave! WIP stands for Work In Progress, it is not yet the finale version of TestDisk & PhotoRec 7.2, but its Maintainer Christophe Grenier from cgsecurity.org told me it is more capable of recovering certain files.

E.g. on mp3 he wrote:
https://github.com/cgsecurity/testdisk/ ... 165184194d is one of the commit that improve mp3 recovery in PhotoRec 7.2-WIP.
More info in the 7.2 release notes and the git history.

Cave²! The module is much larger than the 7.1 due to the binaries being static binaries. If 7.1 works well for you, you can use that instead.

Cave³! I left out the Chinese man pages, only the English ones are provided.

This is the text based version without the GUI.

Code: Select all

TestDisk 7.2-WIP, Data Recovery Utility, Novembre 2020
Christophe GRENIER <grenier@cgsecurity.org>

TestDisk is free data recovery software designed to help recover lost
partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms
are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error.
It can also be used to repair some filesystem errors.

Information gathered during TestDisk use can be recorded for later
review. If you choose to create the text file, testdisk.log , it
will contain TestDisk options, technical information and various
outputs; including any folder/file names TestDisk was used to find and
list onscreen.

Use arrow keys to select, then press Enter key:
>[ Create ] Create a new log file
 [ Append ] Append information to log file
 [ No Log ] Don't record anything
Here is the module at filehorst (the md5sum is like filehorst says it is):

To get it, first wait 15 seconds "Dein Download wird jetzt vorbereitet." (Your download is being prepared)
Then click "Jetzt zur Download-Seite" (now to the download page)
Then click
"Dein Download steht nun bereit.
Klicke hier, um ihn zu starten.
" (Your download is ready.
Click here to start downloading it)

Be aware that the programs can help with fixing partition issues and data recovery, but applying one or all programs erroneously can also create data loss. =@
