I am doing file recovery, and it was working and doing its thing. I was watching the partition via df and was watching the data flow in. This is a separate partition from root or /. It filled up the harddrive up to 83% and then I stopped seeing the data growth. Now testdisk is only returning failed count. The whole process has been running all day with only the last 3 or 4 hours only reporting failures. I am not sure if I should let it continue, stop it or how do i safely exit the program. Also none of the data has proper filenames. I know I should do a fsck immediately but is there a way to get the file names?
