Problem when undeleting text files containing danish letter

#1 Post by Daniel » 03 Oct 2012, 13:34

Hi there.

Really like the TestDisk undelete tool, recovered almost all my data again.
I've got one problem though, when i'm trying to undelete some text files containing the danish letter (lower case) å (upper case) Å, it stops recovering the rest of the text file, and continues with the next file.

It looks like TestDisk thinks the å/Å means end of file/corrupt file?

I'm using the Marvell version of TestDisk.
Please help :)

EDIT: forgot to add, running on Linux - and the 2 other special danish letters (lower case) æ (upper case) Æ and (lower case) ø (upper case) Ø doesn't have the same problem, so they're recovered successful.

Thanks
~Daniel

The difference is, if you copy data, the OS must support the character set and language.
Would it be possible to use another OS or LiveCD/DVD to test it?

Hi Fiona.

Thanks for the suggestion :)
I think its just weird that its the only letter not supported, while the 2 other special letters doesn't have that problem.

Its running on a NAS using RAID5, it doesn't have the possibility to run on other OS's.
