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.
- 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.
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 file system and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media's file system has been severely damaged or reformatted.
PhotoRec is free - this open source multi-platform application is distributed under GNU General Public License (GPLV v2+). PhotoRec is a companion program to TestDisk, an application for recovering lost partitions on a wide variety of file systems and making non-bootable disks bootable again. You can download them from this link.
For more safety, PhotoRec uses read-only access to handle the drive or memory card you are about to recover lost data from. Important: As soon as a picture or file is accidentally deleted, or you discover any missing, do NOT save any more pictures or files to that memory device or hard disk drive; otherwise you may overwrite your lost data. This means that while using PhotoRec, you must not choose to write the recovered files to the same partition they were stored on.
Please, report any bug.
