Undelete freebsd UFS

#1 Post by awoldman »

Hello all,
I am trying to recover some deleted files from a freebsd ufs partition.
I have created a .dd disk image of the volume on to a new drive.

I have tried to run testdisk against the image to do a file recovery but the only
thing that I seem to get testdisk to want to do is save a new disk image.
Am I missing something or does td undelete not support ufs?

I did use photorec but it clobbered all the file names.

Any help is appreciated!

TestDisk has no file undelete for UFS. You can always use PhotoRec but as noted it doesn't recover the original filenames.
