Using Photorec on memorydump - FAIL

#1 Post by miksi » 10 Jun 2014, 05:55

Hello everybody. I have a memorydump (mymemory.dmp) which DOES contain several JPGs as i can see the data with a hex editor. I use "photorec_win.exe mymemory.dmp" and expected JPGs beeing extracted by Photorec. But Photorec does not find one single image. Regardless what options i select. I even unchecked every other file extensions in the options and manually checked only the JPG extension.
This is very weird because i can copy the JPGs by hand from within a hex editor and have valid images that way; why does Photorec fail here?


Thanks for infos, ciao!

Enable the expert mode, force a blocksize of 512 when asked. If it doesn't work, try
"photorec_win.exe /cmd mymemory.dmp blocksize,1,search"
