installation testdisk 6.14 for windows vista

#1 Post by eve1121 » 18 Apr 2012, 01:47

Hi...
My question is about how to install the testdisk program. I deleted my pictures from SD card accidentally and I tried to recover them with test disk and Photorec.

I unzipped the files but I just have the executable files...I checked the files with Photorec and the program did all the process but when the program finished checking the files there´s an instuction saying that I can find the recovering files in recup dir but I haven´t installed the program because I haven´t had the option to do it.


What can I do? Could you help me please?

Thanks in advance...

Can you repeat it, run PhotoRec as administrator.
Just right click on photorec_win.exe and run it as administrator.
Also, you shouldn't run any antivirus as a background process and stop it during recovery.
Did you use the TestDisk 6.14 32-bit version?

I tried to do what you said, click on the right button but i have options like extract files, rename, repair file, order by, establish password, I can´t see anything about running the program as administrator... :(

thanks...

Probably depend on Vista Home and Vista home premium.

But now, there is no necessity to do it.
Didn't know that before.

Some more information;
TestDisk and PhotoRec are only executable.
Your installation path is, where you extracted your files.
The folder recup_dir.1 etc.. should be in your folder like;
C:\Users\Fiona\Documents\testdisk-6.14-WIP.win\testdisk-6.14-WIP\recup_dir.1
Just tested and decompressed TestDisk into my documents folder.

Please let me know.
