I'm wondering if running photorec_win with bad options could damage my disk, ie, does it WRITE / modify the disk, or is it READ-ONLY ?
i have a 2.5" disc from my car stereo.
my windows pc could not initialise it, but it did show up in windows 'Disk Management'.
i ran photorec_win.exe, and it saw the drive, and i proceeded after selecting file sytem "OTHER" 'FAT32....', but it gave errors reading each sector.
so i tried running and selecting filesystem "EXT2/EXT3".
about this time windows started complaining that my device was in a USB1 hub, when it wasn't.
now, windows disk management no longer sees the drive, and nor does photorec_win.
i can hear my disk spinning up, but seems now my computer cannot see it at all.
any hep much appreciated.
