Which partition to restore?

#1 Post by ccices » 20 Aug 2015, 21:25

The analysis shows 2 almost identical partitions that were deleted. Which one should I restore?
Both list the files the same way, the only difference is one ends at a different sector and is slightly larger. Should I take the larger one?

Can you copy and paste the content of your testdisk.log into your next post?
I'll try to have a look which partition matches to your boot sector and file system.
You'll find within your testdisk folder and you can open it using wordpad.
