BTRFS Recovery

#1 Post by lamartpm »

I went through and attempted to recover using TestDisk, and was able to find the partition using deep search. When I tried to list the files, I had the following message: support for this filesystem hasn't been enable during compilation. Just wondering if anyone has any advice, there's a few hundred thousand files and I am hoping to avoid a manual sort, was able to recover most of the files already, but would love to get the file structure back in place.

You can recover this btrfs partition but TestDisk can not list its files.
Use the arrow keys to switch the btfs partition to P(rimary) or L(ogical).
