Using PhotoRec to recover lost data
5 posts • Page 1 of 1
Hello I am trying to use the software to recovery files from an SD card that has been formatted and not written over. I used test disk to create an image.dd file and it was 15GB in size(SD card is 16GB?)... However when trying to run a recovery I am yielding no results. Any idea what may be the problem?
After running another image.dd file it is correctly displaying at 5Gbs.
Any idea why it would yield no recoveries?
Could be that the format was not a 'quick' format. If it was a full format, then the card may have been fully wiped of data. Your dd image would still be the same size as the card, just that it is reading 0's

Compress (ie. zip) the image.dd file. What is the resulting size ? If it's very small, it means it doesn't any data, a full format may have occur.
