I was wondering if you cloud include support for .vdata files from the Vaulty App for android?

As this application doesn't encrypt the files but only renamed them, the original filenames should be recovered correctly by PhotoRec.
Correction: some files may have the word "obscured" prepended to them.

Would I need to add a record for .vdata ? Or would it work "off the shelf?"

ERROR: PhotoRec doesn't know this format.


Feel free to contact the developper if you think that PhotoRec should be able to recover this file. Don't forget to provide this URL.

So I have to add a custom file?

Yes, you can create a photorec.sig (or .photorec.sig on Linux or macos) with

Code: Select all

vdata 0 "obscured"
