I'm undecided which destination in the attached screen shot to save the recovered files, is it ok to choose one of the top 2? I was hoping to save to an external hard drive but that only shows up in the 'select a media file list' but doesn't show up in the destination list, the mounted drive shows up in file system /media/username/wd elements.

Press the left key until you are in the root "/" directory, select "media", "steven", "wd elements" and answer "Y"(es).

Tried pressing the left arrow key but unable to get to wd elements, pressing the left key gave me screenshot 1,pressing it again nothing happened, pressed the down key until it stopped & got screenshot 2, pressed left key again & got screenshot 1 again.
Root (os) is on a ssd & user home is on a hdd, is it possible to save to a folder on the ssd or will it mirror it on user/home? Have noticed that files saved in home/user also appear under file system/home/user.
