testdisk quits when attempting to list files

#1 Post by jokoon »

I managed once to list files, but for some reason I cannot list them again.

testdisk quits, I can see my bash prompt appear, but I can't type anything in the terminal, I have to start a new terminal window.

How do I know what type of boot sector I should choose between classic MBR and GPT ? Does is make a difference ?

Boot sector has nothing to do with your partition table type, either GPT or Intel-MBR.
What's your OS and disk size?
Can you copy and paste the content of your testdisk.log into your next post?
