Recover Partition, Command line

#1 Post by palhello » 14 Sep 2013, 19:21

I'm trying to recover this partition and I can do it through the normal way. I had to change the Cylinder Boundry to No, and when the partitions are shown I had to change covert each partition to Primary.
Can I achieve the same thing by command line using the /cmd ? I want to change the option of Cylinder Boundry and also change the each discovered partition to primary.

Do you have to use Cylinder Boundry to No when using TestDisk 6.14 or 7.0-WIP ?

Actually I'm using TestDisk 6.11 on Ubuntu.

Use the 6.14 or 7.0-WIP version of TestDisk available on http://www.cgsecurity.org this will solve your problem.

Thanks, but even when the partitions do appear they appear as 'D', and I wan to convert the first partition to Primary Boot, and the rest three partitions to Primary partitions. Can this be done via command line with these current versions ?
Right now I've modified the 6.11 code and hardcoded this logic along with cylinder boundary.
