Using PhotoRec to recover lost data
2 posts • Page 1 of 1
Hi - I am going to ask for considerable hand-holding on this one as I am a windows not a Mac user, but am trying to help my sister recover some accidentally deleted photos. I get to the point of running PhotoRec, pointing it at the partition on which the files should be, and then telling it to write any recovered files to an external USB drive (a 1TB Western Digital TOURO). The search starts, and an estimated time is given, but just when it seems something good is about to happen I get the message that files cannot be created in this directory. Is it because the Touro is NTFS? There are no spaces in the path, as I have seen suggested as a possible cause for this behavior. Any suggestions welcome.

Mac OS X can create/modify/delete files on NTFS partition. When you have selected the destination, you need to select the corresponding directory in /Volumes.
