undelete not possible

#1 Postby RPM70 » 19 Jul 2012, 15:10

Hi there,

I am trying to recover files on a 2010 Macbook pro which have been deleted after accidentally emptying the trash.

I really like the testdisk tool, but unfortunately after closely following the steps mentioned in the instructions, I do not see the option undelete for the MBP hard disk.

What am I doing wrong, or is it not possible because if I try the steps on an external disk, I do see this option and can retrieve deleted items.

Looking forward to your tips.

I'm having the same issue. Trying to recover some deleted files from my Macbook Pro, but the "undelete" option does not exist. Anyone?

Undelete is available for FAT12/16/32, exFAT, NTFS, ext2 but for HFS+/HFSX used by Mac OS.
Try PhotoRec instead but it doesn't recover the filenames and it doesn't know how to distinguish between used and free space on HFS+/HFSX, so it will recover a lot of files you can access normally.
