Re: SD Card recovery taking a very long time

Unless the card reader is connected via an old USB1 connector, there is probably an electronic problem with the SD card...
If possible, try with another card reader on another computer but if it doesn't work, you will probably have to contact a data recovery company.

Re: lost luks partition using testdisk. how to recover?

TestDisk will find the beginning of the LUKS partition but not its end.
As you know this partition was using the remaining of the disk, you can use 'a' to manually add a partition starting at the location found by testdisk and ending just before the end of the disk.

Re: lost luks partition using testdisk. how to recover?

TestDisk should detect the beginning of LUKS partition. Identify the LUKS partition found by TestDisk. As the LUKS unencrypted header doesn't contain the LUKS container size, TestDisk has no way to set the correct end for the partition. Use 'a' to manually add a partition beginning at the same locat...

Re: Unknown type

If you choose partition type: None, it means there is no partition, so it's useless to search for partitions...
PC Intel or EFI GPT is probably the correct partition table type.

Please copy and paste the whole testdisk.log file.

Re: Help recovering encrypted drive -- reward!

Can you post the testdisk.log file generated by TestDIsk after searching for the partition ?

Re: Using photorec on Mac HFS RAID

By default, PhotoRec should discard invalid jpg files.
If the filesystem was on a Raid0, it's far better to run PhotoRec against the Raid0 than against one of the disk (or even the 2 disks one by one).

Re: how do i recover files that have been partitioned off?

If TestDisk after Deeper Search deosn't find your partition, it's still possible to use PhotoRec to recover some files using [Whole Disk]. If most files are not recovered, enable the Expert mode in Options, use a blocksize of 512 bytes when asked, use the default options otherwise.
