First, we can confirm that it is possible for you to recover deleted files on Mac after using rm command, even it is not an easy job. Usually, when you delete files or folders in through OS X terminal using the rm -rf, the content of the files or folders are not permanently erased. The system only removes the link to the file making it unable to be found or ...

Knowing what ddrecue does, you should not use it to write to /dev/null while recovering data from broken disk, but to get "at least something" using writes into real image file. Writing to /dev/null has sence e.g. if you want to know for brand-new disk if to return it to the store. In this case, i would not use log file from "/dev/null attempt", but ...

TestDisk is the way to go. Read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery and follow the steps. If you can, use a different computer to browse and ask for advice and stop using your machine. Normal use of your computer can overwrite the data that you are trying to recover.

I answered to a very similar question on the Software Reccomendations website. The files you lost can we recover this drive without losing any personal data? If by "personal data" you mean user generated data (excluding system files) then this might be the case, however only if your NTFS drive contained a OS (probably Windows). Assuming the file you ...

To recover files you need to use file recovery software: https://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm - for windows is a good choice from old experience, there might be better ones nowadays. As it is NTFS, I'd avoid Linux software for that particular partition. And with all this; you always need enough extra disk space to save the recovered files ...

You definitively overwrote/corrupted the partition. No need trying to mount it elsewhere. It won't mount in Linux. Whether or not you are lucky is highly dependent on the size of the file. If the file is (very) small (KB), I would try in Windows software to try to fix the partition. For instance, http://www.ntfs.com/recovery-toolkit.htm If the file is ...

This is what happened in a VM to me when removing regex python*: Since I can't figure out how to install all of it back in, it will be hard to put it together. I will not poke you further, you have learned lesson the hard way. Maybe is someone able to fix it, but I doubt it will be faster than a clean install. That is why I post this.

The forensic tools the recovery company will use could include EnCase Forensic, which is probably the leading forensic data recovery utility. EnCase takes the drive image recovers the raw data, then makes pretty intelligent assumptions as to what blocks form what files. There are still limitations, so an element of this is likely to be manually processed. ...
