see the following stories:
The first article describes the program. I also found most comments by the readers worth reading - and altogether they summarize pretty much everything I would have to say about it :o)
I came across this project
the other day. Apparently it should work with any SIP
-based VoIP client. (They list X-Lite, Gizmo and SJphone.)
I haven't had a chance to test it, but I sure will - they provide a source-form linux version. I may even contribute a gentoo e-build, since so far I couldn't find one...
What makes this project even more interesting to me is the fact that Phil Zimmermann
, the original creator of PGP
, is behind it.
Description in portage: Multi-platform tool to check and undelete partition, supports reiserfs, ntfs, fat32, ext2/3 and many others. Also includes PhotoRec to recover pictures from digital camera memory.
Installation (Gentoo Linux amd64):
echo 'app-admin/testdisk ~amd64' >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo 'app-admin/testdisk jpeg ntfs' >> /etc/portage/package.use
emerge -av app-admin/testdisk
To use it, just run 'photorec' as root in a shell window. Despite the name, photorec will find and recover many files, not only pictures. You'll find the full list
on the PhotoRec homepage.
I haven't tried TestDisk yet, but PhotoRec has been useful several times already.
