    Segmentation Fault while running PhotoRec

    I had accidentally reformatted and installed ubuntu on this external (chose the wrong drive during setup X/) and am trying to get some of the files back that haven’t been overwritten. I got a segmentation fault error after about an hour and a half of scanning my 300GB external. Some of the files have been recovered up until the segfault. Any ideas as to why this may be happening and were I whould go from here?

    Here's the terminal screen during the error:

    That's bad. Not enough RAM perhaps?

    Re: Segmentation Fault while running PhotoRec

    Could be, though it happened on both of my machines, that I tried running the program on. One has 2-gigs of memory and the other has 4-gigs.

    Any suggestions?

    Re: Segmentation Fault while running PhotoRec

    I was getting the segmentation fault error every time as well. Contacted the programmer and he said it was fixed. I'm running 6.12 and so far so good. Here's the reply:

    This issue is known and fixed since 2009
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...sk/+bug/405013
    Try PhotoRec 6.11.3 or 6.12-WIP

    wget -N http://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk-6...inux26.tar.bz2
    tar xjf testdisk-6.12-WIP.linux26.tar.bz2
    cd testdisk-6.12-WIP
    sudo ./photorec_static
