Feature request for adding .keystore files to photorec

#1 Post by Simbaclaws »

Dear cgsecurity,

I think a lot of developers for iphone, windows phone and android apps could make use of photorec if it would recover keystore file formats.
Whenever someone accidentally deletes their keystore file they can essentially be locked out of their own development of their app.
In which case it is essential to those people to recover it so that they can continue to publish their apps without having to republish it.

Hopefully there will be someone kind who listens to this request because I think quite a lot of people could benefit from such a solution.
Sadly enough I'm not experienced enough to develop the file format for this application myself but I'm very grateful if anyone would.

Yours sincerely,

Can you provide several file samples ?
PhotoRec may already recover them as .jks
