photorec fileopt explained

#1 Post by MacJeremy » 19 Oct 2015, 23:49

Heya all,

I'm trying to recover some mysql files and have some difficulties to tell photorec to search only for mysql files. I tried the following:

photorec /d /<backup_folder> /cmd <backup_image> partition_none,options,mode_ext2,fileopt,everything,disable,mysql,enable,search

PhotoRec syntax error: mysql,enable,search


It all gives me syntax error.

When I try frm,enable,search then it starts.

What is the switch for all mysql files, and does this frm search for mysql or for Pro/ENGINEER Drawing Form. Because on ... y_PhotoRec both frm links point to the Drawing Form.

Instead of Mysql, you should use "MYI".
