MOBI ebook recovery

#1 Post by freeumi » 20 Jan 2013, 23:05

Hi All
I've successfully recovered jpg and pdf files. I also have approximately 100 ebooks in .MOBI format left to recover.

Have looked at the options list on photorec and don't see the MOBI file format, but do see it listed in the wiki as a type of file that can be recovered.

I would be grateful for any pointers or instruction as to how I might recover these.

Best wishes,
