Using PhotoRec to recover lost data
4 posts • Page 1 of 1
I am recovering a 2 tb external hdd and my pc only has a 350 gb hdd. I just bought another 2 tb external hdd to transfer the recovered files to but i dont see how to change the destination from my 350 gb pc to the 2 tb external hdd to transfer the files to it? It works great doing it a few files at a time to my almost full pc hdd but that drive is the only option i see or am i missing something?
I had the same problem. You have to use the arrow keys. Left or right arrow keys will get you to a screen where you will see a list of all your drives and then you can use the up and down arrow keys to select your drive.
I did not find this to be true in Windows 20003 SBS with TestDisk 6.14-WIP or PhotoRec 6.14-WIP. I did, however, discover a work-around. The default destination drive is the drive that the TestDisk or PhotoRec program resides on. I moved the TestDisk folder to the drive I wanted to use as the destination drive, then ran it from there. Worked perfectly!Left or right arrow keys will get you to a screen where you will see a list of all your drives and then you can use the up and down arrow keys to select your drive.
Hope this helps!
