Recovering lost data with Photorec

Posted 04-05-2012 at 12:01 AM by stretchedthin

Time for some oldies but goodies. I put this tutorial up, January of 2010. It still does well today on Youtube, so though I'd share it with LQ readers. So enjoy...

Photorec is part of Testdisk and versions are available for both Linux and Windows. It is an incredible powerful tool for recovering lost files when you accidentally format over a partition or an entire drive. This tutorial will walk through the process of using Photorec to recover data from a mistakenly formatted drive.

I used to record the video with a program called Wink. Then I would record over it again for YouTube capturing the audio in audacity. Thinks are much simplier now.
