Subject description: Adding Data Recovery and Filesystem Repair Tools
 

I think it would be great to add TestDisk and PhotoRec to puppy 2.15! They are small programs but they are extremely good at recovering deleted files and filesystems.

Adding this functionality would allow me to use my favorite OS (Puppy) on all my techsupport rounds. It's hard to get a live CD other that puppy to boot on a legacy machine in need of data recovery.

Thank You

I think i posted this in the wrong part of the forum. I thought I was posting this in the 2.15 feature request section. Sorry

I don't have a dotpup/dotpet for testdisk or photorec, but you can get similar functionality from scalpel, which allows to recover several file types and even to define new file types if you know their "fingerprints".
Scalpel-1.54: http://www.debernardis.it/dotpups/scalpel-1.54.pup
Could be good to make a dotpet of the new version 1.60.

Subject description: tgz2pet Probably Sufficent
 

I've found the tar packages on his website works out of the box. It just gives you a directory from which you can run it ./testdisk.

I did a tgz2pet and ran it. I found the folder that created/linux and could initiate testdisk with ./testdisk. It also does well with ./testdisk bob.img type of arguments. Also photorec is part of this package.

It's so small and so powerful I think it would make a good addition of the main puppy release at minimal cost to space.
