Undelete mp3 on ext4

#1 Post by nroduit »

I've successfully recovered mp3 files on ext4 partition (no write action after files has been deleted), but some of them have a size of 8 MB (without the end of the file).

Are there any options to fix this issue?

Sorry, this post should be in the File Recovery section, because the undelete function doesn't work in my case as the ext4 journal contains only a partial list of the deleted files.

Unfortunately the original file was probably fragmented.
