Mac OS, recover from startup disk?

#1 Post by soonafter »

I used PhotoRec successfully recently on an external drive, and now I want to use it on my internal startup disk. Is this possible? The internal disk isn't an option on the disk selection page within PhotoRec. Thanks.

Choose "sudo" if you don't see your internal disk (disk0).
Be carefuf to store the recovered file on another partition (or disk) than the source.

"Sudo" doesn't appear to be an option?
