PhotoRec User Guide

#1 Post by seagull » 16 Dec 2014, 10:47

This is just a minor point, but it may help another Linux user to get started with PhotoRec.

I use Linux Mint or Ubuntu and I installed Testdisk using:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install testdisk
In the guide “PhotoRec Step by Step” at:

it states that under Unix/Linux/BSD, you need to be root to run PhotoRec:


Code: Select all

 sudo testdisk-6.13/photorec_static

This did not work and it took me a little while to realise that I should have simply used:

Code: Select all

sudo photorec 
in order to run PhotoRec.

Thanks for two great programs.
