I need recover a directory deleted after cut to external device. I lost this data and I didn't any more in my hard drive after cut the data.

So I saw ntfsundelete and now try to use this command. I saw this answer in other similar question, that they use extundelete command and it has an option for restore a specific directory.

sudo extundelete --restore-directory /home/Documents/ /dev/sda1

Is it possible do something similar with ntfsundelete? I accept too others ways different of ntfsundelete, but keep in mind that I need to find some directories and recover the complete directory. Importan the hard drive is an NTFS volume.

Thanks in advance.

  • @mikewhatever Maybe you don't see my point, if you read my question you can see that I looking for a similar option like extundelete in ntfsundele, I know that extundelete is for FS based in ext – Cyberguille Sep 2 '16 at 22:38
  • @mikewhatever if this option is not possible with ntfsundelete I appreciate another option, but note that I need to recover is a directory – Cyberguille Sep 2 '16 at 22:46
  • @mikewhatever Sorry If I have some grammatical errors, I try to fix this now, ok thanks something like your answer is that I need, but is it not possible with any other tool? – Cyberguille Sep 2 '16 at 23:26
  • Hold on, I didn't see that you meant ntfsundelete, my mistake. Let us start again. It should be possible to recover something. According to the man page, you could try ntfsundelete scan /dev/sdXY, and see what happens. – mikewhatever Sep 2 '16 at 23:35
  • Just using Testdisk would be easier... – Andrea Lazzarotto Sep 3 '16 at 12:43
