WHen does TestDisk write the files to the other disk?

#1 Post by EvilWayz »

I mistakenly deleted a 350 gb folder full of movies. I immediately unmounted the disk, bought a 2TB drive to save the recovered files on, and went to work. After three days, theres 400 some odd files that have been recovered according to testdisk, but the folder that i directed it to save to is still empty. Does TestDisk not write the files until its done with the recovery?

I would include a log but when I try to open it errors out, something about a UTF error.
