Command line EO1 search for one file type

#1 Post by Stogie1020 »

New user with a question, forgive me if it has been answered (I searched and did not find any posts).

I am running Photorec from the command line to search free space on a multi-part E01 file and really only want to recover specific file types. Is there a way to specify only certain file types when running PhotoRec from the command line (switches or a config file), OR, is there a way to process a multi-part E01 image from the executable?

You can disable some file types from the command line:
or also modify the settings in FileOpts and save them.


Code: Select all

photorec 'image.E*'
if you want to open a multiple-files Encase image.
