Lost my whole fonts collection. No option to recover .otf though

#1 Post by vt8235 » 29 Apr 2018, 07:55

Hello,
I've lost my whole collection of fonts I do not quite understand. I 've been messing around with Windows 10 user accounts lately a lot.
I see there is a fiel option for .ttf but not for .otf. Is it possible this will be added?
Thanks and best regards

Create a photorec.sig file in testdisk directory with

Code: Select all

otf 0 OTTO
Once it's done, run "fidentify_win file.otf" (replace file.otf by the correct filepath) to check if the signature is correct, it should detect the otf file with the correct file extension.
If it's ok, run photorec_win
