Ubuntu – Does anyone know of any alternatives to recuva for file recovery?


I was using recuva to find pictures and videos on a windows xp hard drive, but I keep getting an internal error message. Does anyone know of an alternative program for recovering broken and damaged files?

I know that with ubuntu it's sometimes better and I had some more success recovering data from windows computers with ubuntu, I tried find but are there any GUI programs that someone would recommend?

TestDisk is a good Open Source data recovery software. It is in the main Ubuntu Repository.

Install via the software center


sudo apt-get install testdisk
