Infinity loop when recovering files with photorec

#1 Post by camg1986 » 19 Jul 2018, 02:35

Hi people,

I'm trying to recover .jpg files from a hard drive and the program started a infinity loop while in the first step.
Above the details.

Version: 7.1-WIP

Partition Table:

Code: Select all

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
/dev/sda 931.5GiB, 1000204886016 bytes, 1953525168 sectors
Units: sectors of 1* 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x6d2787d8

Device       Boot    Start           End            Sectors        Size      Id           Type
/dev/sda1    *       2048            718847         716800         350M      7            HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda2    *       718848          975839231      975120384      465G      7            HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda3    *       975839232       976760831      921600         450M      27           Hidden NTFS WinRE
/dev/sda4    *       976762878       1983523711     976760834      465.8G    5            Extended
/dev/sda5    *       976762880       977481727      718848         351M      83           Linux
/dev/sda6    *       977483776       987486207      10002432       4.8G      82           Linux Swap/ Solaris
/dev/sda7    *       987488256       1953523711     966035456      460.7G    83           Linux

PARTITION 4 DOES NOT START ON PHYSICAL SECTOR BOUNDARY.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Partition to be recovered: /dev/sda7
Partition Format: Ext4
Recovered data destiny: external hard drive
Loop Begin: sector 227xxxxxx (Changes a little)
Loop End: sector 228xxxxxx (Changes a little)

Is it possible to recover?

Is the number of recovered files really constant while in this loop ?

Yes, the number of recovered files is constant while in this loop.
