PhotoRec on Mac - no hard disk found

#1 Post by antpicc » 06 Aug 2018, 15:04

Hi! I'm trying to rune Photorec on my MacOS High Sierra partition. However, each time I run PhotoRec it says "no harddisk found". Any suggestion about how to fix it?

Can you choose "sudo" in the menu ?

Thanks for your answer. Would you please mind explaining me better how should I use the Sudo command? I tried to give Sudo in the Terminal, and then write the path corresponding to the PhotoRec executable, but it gives me the same answer (see attachments).
