Request for Guidance Parted Magic Video Recovery
May I please ask for some help on how to go about in trying to recover old pictures and videos using PhotoRec in a reformatted 80G HD. This is my first attempt to use Parted Magic and quite excited to see it in action. So, if you may allow me, please, I would be posting the outputs one by one. Thank you in advance!
I am trying to recover the files from an IDE HD connected now to my laptop using a cable.

There is a PhotoRec Step-By-Step HowTo that you can follow here:

Hopefully it will help to get your files recovered.oz
Merry Christmas Oz,
Thank you for the site you gave re Parted Magic. It took quite a little while to get to understand how to run PhotRec but now I am 90% done in the recovering of my deleted files. Pictures & mp3s. I notice that videos were not recovered since most if not all were corrupted.
I have received some gifts this Christmas but I must say that knowing how to use Parted Magic is one of the top gifts I receive this season. The joy of learning how to recover lost family pictures and even some old music I never thought I had is something else. I had this live CD with me for months and its only now that I get to use and enjoy it.
I know this is only a fragment of of what PM can do. Am looking forward to master the PM. Congratulations to the developers! Thanks OZ for introducing PM to me!
By the way, regarding the videos? May I ask if its still possible to recover them?nujinini
