It may be a problem of file ownership:

As written in the FAQ I link to
- If you are using Windows, you may need to take ownership of the folders: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421
- Under MacOS X or Linux, change the owner of the files, example sudo chown -R username recup_dir.* or sudo chown -R username /home/username/testdisk-6.14/recup_dir.*. (When asked for the password, use the password from your user session to validate the sudo command)
