Can photorec list files prior to recovery?

I think testdisc can but photorec seems to be able to access more files

Is it possible to run photorec & just get a list of the data it can find?

TestDisk can list files in Advanced, List or Advanced,Undelete.
PhotoRec can't as it ignores the filesystem. It's why it can recover more files and wht it doesn't recover the original filenames.
