testdisk doesn't recognize nvme ssd

#1 Post by freebe » 20 Jun 2016, 14:10

Hi,
my internal ssd on which I would like to recover some date is not listed when I start testdisk. It is a nvme drive.
Any Idea what to do?

Sorry for not providing any additional information. I've been googling for 30 minutes and can't find a command to show the properties of the ssd. it is not supported by hdparm ( HDIO_DRIVE_CMD(identify) failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device). If anyone knows how to do that, please tell me and I will provide the information.

Use the device name in parameter, something like "testdisk /dev/nvme0".
Does it work ?
