Retrieving deleted file (That I know where is...)

#1 Post by Froglegs7162 »


I've been following a guide for android to recover lost data. I have a raw disk file now, and I've found the files I want to recover with testdisk.
testdisk cmd
testdisk cmd
testdisk.png (38.88 KiB) Viewed 1429 times
However, when I tried using "advanced" in testdisk, it just prompted me to make an image file from the partition or whatever it was. There was no "undelete" option. Also, when I try to just copy the file into my computer it doesnt show up (naturally... As it is deleted I guess).

I also tried using photorec but I'm fairly sure it didn't find the files when I looked through the jpgs it had found, even though it found quite a lot.

Help is much appreciated!! So much work just to get a single picture recovered :?

Use 'c' to copy your deleted file
