PhotoRec – Select Specific Sector

For any reason you want to start PhotoRec at a specific sector. You could do so as follow:

  1. Run PhotoRec, let it run for couple minutes and stop it.
  2. Run PhotoRec again and select “Y” to resume the last session. If this works, stop and quit again.
  3. Open photorec.ses and change the sector range. Each sector range will be on each line. Delete them all and put the range that you wish to search for and save it.
  4. Run PhotoRec again, and put “Y”. It will run for couple seconds to minutes, then switch to your desired range.

This works for me. I hope it works for you as well.
