how to install testdisk?

#1 Post by 4and20chars »

Can anyone explain how to install testdisk?
The instructions say:
Under Unix/Linux/BSD, you need to be root to run TestDisk (ie. sudo testdisk-6.9/linux/testdisk_static)

When I type this I get:
command not found

Can anyone please help? Thank you in advance.

Do you use testdisk 6.9?
Did you use the right path like;
sudo testdisk-6.13/linux/testdisk_static
From a Live CD it would be possible that's 6.12?
