Linux - Copy deleted files to *another* mount point.

#1 Post by jonc »


I'm currently attempting to use Testdisk to recover some deleted files from an ext3 partition.
Is there a way to specify a completely separate device / mount point for the destination? I obviously don't want to overwrite any 'freespace' that might be used by current deleted files.

Any pointed would be much appreciated!

You can choose the destination of your choice, so yes. The destination must be mounted before you try to select it.
