TestDisk : A FANTASIC FREE Data Recovery Tool

I’ve been working on installing a Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard on my Dell Mini 9. (also trying Dual boot) I’ve rapidly format, and change the partition of my USB-Key and also USB-HDD. And I deleted the partition table of my USB-HDD which contains lots of important data (about 200G). During the panic finding solutions, I’ve tried lots of recovery tools including some commercial softwares, but unfortunately some of them won’t work at all, some of them take hours of time and had to recover the data to an external disk (because they lack the function to reconstruct partition table).

Finally, I got TestDisk a handy command line tool.  Analysis, find the lost partition table, reconstruct — IT WORKS! — only take less than 5 minutes and recovery the entire partition.  It ROCKS, a fantastic tool 🙂

前些日子一直在尝试在DellMini 9 上面装Mac OS X Snow Leopard (另外还在尝试双启动)。因此,难免的要经常的进行格式化硬盘的操作。然后呢,一不小心,把我的一个USB移动硬盘给格式化了,分区表丢失,上面有不少的重要数据,包括一些照片,文档以及Galgame若干(该硬盘的Galgame目录曾经就不小心被我删过一次,辛苦恢复回来的)。慌乱之中找了不少恢复软件,其中还包括一些商业软件,但是,有些不是不能找到丢失的数据,就是需要非常长的扫描时间,然后还必须将数据恢复到另外一块盘上(主要是因为不支持重建分区表)

最终我找到了TestDisk,一个简单强大的命令行工具,分析,寻找丢失的分区表,找到之后直接原盘上重建分区表,整个分区就恢复了,总共不超过5分钟。TestDisk真的是一个相当优秀的数据恢复软件。
