I have a broken hard disk, which Photorec still seems to be able to read (partially). One of the files I really want to recover is my personal bookkeeping file of the last years.
I have created the extension file, based on the two examples attached, and put it in the home directory, as well as the current directory, but fidentify returns 'unknown' when run on the files.
Tha application is WinBank: http://members.quicknet.nl/marcel.jansen3/
The content of the file 'photoreq.sig' is
example1 is attached
example2: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/602 ... RBEELD.WBD
Anybody got any tips?
