It works great on Linux Mint 20. I can't say enough good things about this program. I had an SSD that contained data and this program was able to see the data and retrieve it.

Works in a fresh install of Mint 19.1 Cinnamon. Programs are run from a console with either "testdisk" or "photorec" commands. Helpful user doc's at "https://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec_Step_By_Step" and "https://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Step_By_Step"

TestDisk has saved my computer from otherwise HDD dooming errors. It's fast, and can locate many previous partition layouts.

Gene Testdisk tabanlı olan grafik arayüzlü QPhotoRec'i de kullanabilirsiniz.You should use QphotoRec. It based on Testdisk. And it has GUI.

Just save 16GB of photographic work for my wife's work (a charity), with this tool. Some Euros donated with sincere gratitude.
