Where to Store Testdisk

#1 Post by nsivin »

I have downloaded Testdisk to a PC running Linux Mint 17. I can't figure out where to store it. I need to use Photorec to recover some lost files on a solid state disk---if that is possible. At the moment the downloaded application is on my desktop, but I have no idea how to start it. None of the files in the package is an obvious executable. I tried putting the folder in /usr/bin, but that doesn't work either. I know this is a dumb question, but shouldn't it be answered in your documentation?
