Recovering the deleted JPG files.

Its been some time i posted here, my apology.
It was great last evening as me Achet and Tanya wer out 4 dinner and at same time we been clicking our photos.

Tanya unknowingly deleted all the photographs we had taken that evening and she was feeling way to bad. I knew there must be some way to recover the data and hence i was relaxed.

After googling and speaking with Shastry i figured out the way to recover all the deleted images with a FOSS software name “Foremost”

Installing the software was 2 easy easy like always on ubuntu.

Checking the man of foremost i got basic idea about it.

steps i followed:–

1. installing foremost

[php]$ sudo apt-get install foremost
[/php]

2. Figuring out the device name and mount point

[php]$ mount
[/php]

it told me my drive is /dev/sdb1

3.final execution

[php]$ sudo foremost -t jpg -i /dev/sdb1
[/php]

4.output

I got a directory with name “output” in my current working directory with a subdirectory name “jpg” and i could see all my deleted images there.

I slept at 4 am and woke up at 9 and felt like sharing it with all of you so i wrote about it right away.

Cheers!!
