hpr0656 :: My first steps in recovering pictures

Released on 2011-02-07 under a CC-BY-NC-SA license.

This is my first podcast ever and I show you how easy it is to recover pictures from a dying disk. It's not high-tech as I found out (using the commands anyway). Links to the used tools and PartedMagic:

  • Photorec (recover pictures and other files on havily dammaged filesystem)
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec
  • Ddrescue {fancy imaging-tool to get data from dammaged media}
http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html
  • PartedMagic
http://partedmagic.com/doku.php?id=start

The switches I used in ddrescue as given in their documentation:

  • ddrescue -f -n /dev/hdb1 /dev/hdc1 logfile
  • ddrescue -d -f -r3 /dev/hdb1 /dev/hdc1 logfile

    Please send feedback, advise, whatever to: sven@@noblanks.org
