http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi! May I please ask for some help on how to go about in trying to recover old pictures and videos using PhotoRec in a reformatted 80G HD. This is my first attempt to use Parted Magic and quite excited to see it in action. So, if you may allow me, please, I would be posting the outputs one by one. Thank you in advance! I am trying to recover the files from an IDE HD connected now to my laptop using a cable. Code: PhotoRec 6.11, Data Recovery Utility, April 2009 Christophe GRENIER <grenier@cgsecurity.org> http://www.cgsecurity.org   PhotoRec is free software, and comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. Select a media (use Arrow keys, then press Enter): Disk /dev/sda - 250 GB / 232 GiB (RO) - ATA Hitachi HTS54252 Disk /dev/sdb - 80 GB / 74 GiB (RO) - FUJITSU MHV2080AT Disk /dev/sr0 - 101 MB / 97 MiB (RO) - HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T50N [Proceed ]  [  Quit  ] Note: Disk capacity must be correctly detected for a successful recovery. If a disk listed above has incorrect size, check HD jumper settings, BIOS detection, and install the latest OS patches and disk drivers. Chose fujitsu and clicked "proceed" this is what I got: Code: PhotoRec 6.11, Data Recovery Utility, April 2009 Christophe GRENIER <grenier@cgsecurity.org> http://www.cgsecurity.org Disk /dev/sdb - 80 GB / 74 GiB (RO) - FUJITSU MHV2080AT Please select the partition table type, press Enter when done.

The files I am trying to recover were saved on an ntfs partition. #1 & #3 are FAT16 so I tried to click 2 E extended and this is what it gave me: Code: PhotoRec 6.11, Data Recovery Utility, April 2009 Christophe GRENIER <grenier@cgsecurity.org> http://www.cgsecurity.org  2 E extended              9553  0  1  9728 254 63    2827440 To recover lost files, PhotoRec need to know the filesystem type where the file were stored: [ ext2/ext3 ]  ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem [ Other    ]  FAT/NTFS/HFS+/ReiserFS/...
