Restore old scan with testdisk.log

#1 Post by BioHaZarK »


I have performed a quick partition scan yesterday with testdisk that took a while, and I started by mistake a deep search that I cancelled (and lost the first scan results).
Is it possible to load the previous quick scan thanks to the log file ?

Backup your testdisk.log file.
If necessary, you can manually add each partition. Start a Quick Search, abort it, use 'a' to manually add the missing partition.
