PhotoRec not generating a .log file

#1 Post by ag25 » 20 Mar 2015, 07:22

The wiki says PhotoRec should be able to generate a .log file using the /log parameter.

I'm unsure of how to do this, and am unable to generate a .log file to see if I am having any errors.

Thanks

What O/S are you using? What version of photorec are you using? What have you tried so far? You just simply append the /log switch when invoking photorec from the command line...

Windows
PhotoRec 7.0 WIP

Not tried anything since I'm not sure how to do it.

I get a log when I use the GUI version as it seems to generate it automatically.

Either put photorec.exe in your path (e.g \Windows\System32) and invoke with:
photorec.exe /log

OR

cd to where your executable is and invoke with:
photorec.exe /log
