Search in specific folder for specific filetype?  Topic is solved

#1 Post by MjWoNeR » 28 Mar 2012, 12:11

Hi,

Is it possible to set Photorec to only search in the desktop folder and recycle bin and recover only.TXT files?

If yes how do I do it?

Unfortunately it's not possible to search a single folder.
Only free space or while disk.
You can go to File Opt and press s to deselct all file types.
Then you can select only those file types where you want to recover.

Thanks for the reply. :)

I managed to recover one of the two .txt files. The other one was overwritten. Better than nothing.
