what to answer at Cluster... Directory / found?

#1 Post by Liha » 07 Jun 2018, 13:15

I am trying to repair my bf's USB-drive, which he accidentally killed. (Filesystem was set to RAW).
Following Fiona's instructions at viewtopic.php?t=462, I set the Type to FAT 32.

Now it's showing me some files, that are on the drive and asks:

P FAT 32 0 0 1 4824 118 6 61440000
Cluster 543368, Directory / found?

The first list was a bunch of .NEF-Files, I hit "No" as an answer. Now it's showing a file which I recognize - a picture. (I would copy and paste the logfile here, but I can't find it in the directory.. help with that?)

>-rwr-xr-x 0 0 192687868 13-May-2013 15:25 GOLD_25898_1R_HDR.tif

The question is - what do I answer? Y or N?
Unfortunately I don't know if this particular file was in the root directory of the drive, or how in fact the files were organized on the drive. (I can find out, though)

However it's important to recover all the files of the stick, if possible.

Thanks for any help!

Can you try using latest 7.1-WIP version ?
If it doesn't work, use PhotoRec. It will not recover the original filenames but it should recover most files.
