  4. Thank you so much. I had a GParted Live USB drive that I had used to accidentally delete an important partition. It turns out testdisk was on the same USB drive and I just needed to run terminal to use it. Thanks again.

  5. Lifesaver!! I had to do a deep scan because I aborted a partition resize. After scanning about 2% testdisk found the original partition and restored the partition table. Note to self: never abort a partition resize. 😉

  6. Thank you very much for your help, this video was very helpful. I recovered all the information that I need from a disk which, I drop the partition by mistake with DISKPART by using the CLEAN command thanks again.
