Function not implemented

#1 Post by westmantooth » 19 Apr 2019, 18:00

I have been given an Encase E01 file which has a deleted partition. I am attempting to recover it using testdisk but getting an error. If looked at the man page but can't see what I'm doing wrong. I've double checked the path to the file etc. Output below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


root@kali:~# testdisk /mnt/hgfs/Forensics/CaseOX201804.E01

Run "testdisk -v". Is ewf lib enabled ?
If it's not the case, download and compile testdisk source code as described in
Good luck
