Fragments recovery (raw disk copy)

#1 Post by Felice » 28 Aug 2014, 20:59

Hello,
I'm trying to recover from a CF card a photo that has been deleted and PARTIALLY OVERWRITTEN.

I've just run photorec, that's what I can see in the report.xml:

<fileobject>
<filename>f0999659.jpg</filename>
<filesize>2002259</filesize>
<byte_runs><byte_run offset="0" img_offset="511857664" len="2015232"/></byte_runs>
</fileobject>

<fileobject>
<filename>f1010219.ctg</filename>
<filesize>16384</filesize>
<byte_runs><byte_run offset="0" img_offset="517264384" len="16384"/></byte_runs>
</fileobject><fileobject>

511857664 + 2015232 = 513872896

Remembering the exact time in which my photo has been taken, I'm pretty sure that fragments of that file can be found from 513872896 and 517264384. Without header, of course (file has been partially overwritten).
Is there any way to have a raw copy of that data?
Thanks a lot.

In Options, enable the expert mode, enable keep corrupted copy, start a recovery, use a blocksize of 512 when asked, use the default options otherwise. Do you recover your pictures or picture fragments this way ?
