Hello Experts,

I want to undelete files by using testdisk.exe on Windows 7 64bit with scripts.

I checked following web site.
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/Scripted_run

But I cannot know how to undelete files to my destination directory.

I know that I can undelete with CUI and select destination directory. But I want to
do that from my GUI program that run testdisk.exe with command line options.
So I need to run with command line options.

I run like...

testdisk_win.exe /debug /log /cmd /dev/sdd partition_i386,advanced,undelete

But I just got file lists in testdisk.log without undelete itself.

Please advice.

So are you trying to undelete files from a specific directory?  I don't see how this is possible.  When you delete a file the reference that includes the directory path is blown away.   So if the directory path is gone, then how can you enumerate through a directory in the first place?

Sorry, the nature of the app and the fact that the output is somewhat free format for undelete pretty much makes it impossible to use a scripting tool.

You're just going to have to modify the source code.  (Which is fully documented and online). it should be pretty painless for somebody to make the changes.  It is complete with makefiles so everything is there to build it on a Windows, Mac, or LINUX box with just the C compiler and appropriate build utilities.
