Any reason you wouldn't run their latest? Really, I have no idea why peeps always think they need a pet file.
I sometimes prefer a pet file because:
a) It means someone went to the trouble of ironing out any incompatibilities with Puppy idiosyncrasies (eg: menu structure etc)
b) It's likely that multiple other users have eyeballed the code or at least used the software in a puppy environment and may have already contributed to the improvement of functionality or configuration etc.
c) I often want the older 'tried and true' version that has already been debugged.
d) I may be setting up an old puppy on old hardware and want a matching version of that software.
e) I'm sometimes paranoid and want a program that was written by the 'old school' devs rather than expanded and bloated by the 'new school' CIA operatives who love stuff like systemd.
f) I am a collector of stuff and if it's there to be archived I am keen to have a copy just for the heck of it... Smile

Like @GreenGeek, I usually look for PET implementations for system test & use.

I prefer a PET because I usually install a PUP app/subsystem to be used as part on my main system, available always. Thus, no need for its layering at boot or via SFS loadings because its become an integral system part and is preserved once any session-saves are done.

I have not noticed, in all the years of doing so, any negative behavior is PET additions and use in my main systems. I run LiveDVD PUP distros.

A good tutorial can be found here : http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/linux-data-recovery.html

The process is fairly simple, but following a tutorial might help recover partitions or files, or both. Other tool mentionned in the tutorial is : Recoverjpeg : http://www.rfc1149.net/devel/recoverjpeg.html

PostPosted: Thu 17 Sep 2015, 13:41    Post subject: a script to recover data
Subject description: based on TestDisk
 

wget http://pinguyos.com/files/undelete
chmod +x undelete
sudo mv undelete /bin


I have used this script with MintPup, so it should work for any Upup. It is provided by PinguyOS.

To have it in terminal, once installed, you type undelete

You will be presented with all your mounted devices, and you choose which one to undelete.

This script could be your prefered tool to recover data from FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3/ext4 partitions.
