Recover data after partition format f2fs

#1 Post by Tahlia421 »

I've accidentally format partition that was containing postgresql data. I realized quickly what I have done and haven't make anything more with this drive, so the data are untouched (I hope). The partition was f2fs type.

I have made image of entire drive and try to recover using testdrive and photorec (ver 7.1-WIP) but without any success.

Can someone tell me how to deal this problem?

When running PhotoRec, enable the Expert mode in Options, start the recovery and force the blocksize to 512 bytes. Use the default options otherwise.
Does it work better ?
