Elapse for recovery

#1 Post by eliuzz » 12 Jan 2018, 19:42

Hi.
Is it normal that the program is running for 2 days and seems not to have ended his work? :?
It's a Pen Drive with (apparently) 25.000 files
Please let me know.
Thank you in advance from Italy :)

Usually a recover last a few hours unless there are physical damages or very slow connectivity (ie. USB1 instead of USB2 or USB3)

It's still scanning... :shock:
What could it happen? Where did I go wrong?
Is there a possibility to send you something (i.e. logs)?
Please let me know
Thank you

You can use ddrescue to create an image from this pendrive, read https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf for on howto.
There are Linux, Mac OSX and Windows version of ddrescue.
How long does it take to create such image ?
