Hi, using photorec on mac with sd card,

where is the default place where the recovered files will be?

Can I see them as they are being recovered?

Usually the recovered files are where you have decompressed testdisk & photorec, they are in a subdirectory named recup_dir.1, recup_dir.2...
You can view the recovered files even if the recovery isn't finished
