Where to find my recovered files?

#1 Post by chiefwahoo876 »

I've ran a recovery on my SanDisk only to have the program tell me that my files have been saved to testdisk-6.13/recup_dir directory. Ive looking for an hour to find this solution on other forums and even can;t find the answer on here, probably because this is such a newbie scenario. Please help me, these files im trying to recover meant alot to me. There videos to btw, just in case if that means i need to do something extra to get them back. Thank you.

// I assume, only one topic might be OK, your crosspost will be removed

Can you run PhotoRec using TestDisk 6.14-32bit?

If you have run PhotoRec from an unzipped directory, the destination has probably been in a temporary directory that has been deleted by your compression/decompression program when PhotoRec execution has finished.
Please extract all the files properly before running PhotoRec. Note that you had the possibility to choose the destination.
