Copy files failed

#1 Post by higgsprime » 10 Jan 2018, 20:34

Hello Readers,

I have managed to recover files using testdisk from persistent Live Ubuntu (16.04) USB 3 months ago and now I forgot how I did it.

Steps I take:
1. select the disk
2. Intel
3. Advance
4. List -> Can't Open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged
5. Boot
6. List

here I navigate to folder I want to copy by pressing C then navigate to ubuntu/media/(USB name)

Now once it says Copy Done! I recheck that destination USB and find nothing. Please guide me
