.vcf confusion

#1 Postby kane » 07 Mar 2012, 14:02

Hi,

first of all, I'd like to say thank you for testdisk and photorec. I am currently pursuing a BSc in Forensic Computing, and I appreciate the hard work Christophe (and others) put in to these two amazing pieces of software.

My question is regarding the .vcf vCard extension not being listed in the latest instalment of photorec (6.13 on Ubuntu 11.10, pulled from 12.04). I tried to read the source code, but since I'm new to C I'm not sure if I understood it correctly. It seems that in order to have photorec recognize .vcf, one must select .txt in the FileOpts menu. Am I understanding this right?

Thank you again.

Kevin

Yes, vcf files should be recovered by the txt file familly.
For the source code, search for vcf in http://git.cgsecurity.org/cgit/testdisk ... file_txt.c
