I recently undeleted some photos, using testdisk.
Basically, you have to specify what kind of files you are looking for.
In my case I specified JPG.
The process worked well, recovering dozens of JPG files,
including those I was looking for.
But I found the testdisk documentation almost completely unintelligible.
And I didn't find any good documentation on testdisk undelete
Unfortunately I didn't keep a record of what I did.
I found testdisk very useful on another occasion,
recovering a corrupt partition table.
But again, I found the documentation difficult to follow,
eg at the start you are asked to specify the type of partition table,
with half-a-dozen options to choose from.
(The correct one in my case was "Intel/PC".)
Testdisk struck me as a very useful and versatile program.
If only someone apart from the author would explain how to use it.
