Read it again, more carefully.JoeFootball wrote: ↑Mon Jan 04, 2021 8:11 amAt first glance, it looks fairly comprehensive to me. Perhaps this section would make it more clear, as it includes a step for how to run it after the download step ...
"TestDisk Step By Step
This recovery example guides you through TestDisk step by step to recover a missing partition and repair a corrupted one. After reading this tutorial, you should be ready to recover your own data."
The command is only an example. The path is not absolute and the version number is probably different. I ask for help with what the command is to run TestDisk because it was installed with the Mint Software Manager, and only the Mint team would be able to tell me what that is.Under Unix/Linux/BSD, you need to be root to run TestDisk (ie. sudo testdisk-6.13/testdisk_static)
Read the context, not just the instructions.
I'm sorry, "silences if there is a media on the device"?ricardogroetaers wrote: ↑Mon Jan 04, 2021 11:02 amLsusb detects that the USB device has been inserted, silences if there is a media on the device, if that media contains partitioning, a partition and a file system.
The Disks program can show this.
As for the TestDisk program, I don't know about it, so I can't help you in using this program.
Consider that if the device media is "burned" (nonexistent), the TestDisk program, or any other data recovery program, will be harmless.
It is not possible to recover data stored in what does not exist.
No more confusion.
Well, after multiple instances of not starting I tried Disks, but it can't see the USB, and GParted doesn't have any hanging incidents anymore either and just skips past the device. (It used to have an error message involving /dev/sdb, but not anymore.) I'm not sure what other options exist other than TestDisk which I don't know how to start.
