I'm curious about these recovery tools, I got 3 questions. When I used TestDisk this is what I received.

The harddisk (160 GB / 149 GiB) seems too small! (< 253 GB / 235 GiB) Check the harddisk size: HD jumpers settings, BIOS detection...

  1. PhotoRec is moving the files or copying?

  2. SafeCopy will keep the folder name and files name? Or it's the same with PhotoRec that will rename the files and scrumble it?

PhotoRec can identify a data chunk 'on the disk' even when there is no pointer to it in the file system (which happens, when the file is deleted, and which can happen, when the file system is damaged). PhotoRec will copy from these data to files in another drive.

See the following link and links from it, if you want more details,
