This scripts allow to add the TestDisk & PhotoRec to our project. It downloads the lastest version from internet and then add it to our project. It needs to allow the connection to internet, because uses a custom downloader (made by me).

If you have any problem with download, you can go to TestDisk webpage and download the Windows package (Normal Windows, don't use x64 version). Then copy the file to "%GlobalTemp%\TestDisk & PhotoRec\Testdisk.zip" and the script should detect the file and avoid the download.

Personally, I've to say about both programs that are extraordinary because with Testdisk i've recovered a lost partition easily, and after recover the filesystem all files still working fine, and with PhotoRec i've recovered files from about 6 years old from a Camera SD card (i've not looking for that files, but is good).

For now only have the x86 version for both PE system, because x64 version have some lost features, like full ext2/3/4 support.

TestDisk is powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software: certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.
TestDisk can
  • Fix partition table, recover deleted partition
  • Recover FAT32 boot sector from its backup
  • Rebuild FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 boot sector
  • Fix FAT tables
  • Rebuild NTFS boot sector
  • Recover NTFS boot sector from its backup
  • Fix MFT using MFT mirror
  • Locate ext2/ext3/ext4 Backup SuperBlock
  • Undelete files from FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2 filesystem
  • Copy files from deleted FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3/ext4 partitions.
TestDisk has features for both novices and experts. For those who know little or nothing about data recovery techniques, TestDisk can be used to collect detailed information about a non-booting drive which can then be sent to a tech for further analysis. Those more familiar with such procedures should find TestDisk a handy tool in performing onsite recovery.

PhotoRec is file data recovery software designed to recover lost files including video, documents and archives from hard disks, CD-ROMs, and lost pictures (thus the Photo Recovery name) from digital camera memory. PhotoRec ignores the fi

The latest version of "TestDisk" ( 7.0 final ) doesn't seems to run in PE. They might have changed the program code significantly. Has anyone succeeded in running the new version in PE ?.
