Help with Testdisk

#1 Post by paperone »


Hope to have your help on how to use testdisk. I need to access the "shares" folder as can be seen in the attached screenshot.

I was able to write the partition table using testdisk but I just can't access the "shares" folder. I after recovering the partition, I tried running fsck on the image file and was quite successful enough as it allowed me to mount the partition but still I can't access the "shares" folder. Please give me some thoughts on how to do it. Thanks.
