    hello, I am trying to recover few things using scalpel. but i’m not able to uncomment or edit the scalpel.conf file. I changed the permission of the .conf file to 777 using chmod, but in vain. Can you help me?

    So…what happens? I don’t understand the last step. I start scalpel, and what do I get? a list of files that it finds? or what? how do I recover the missing file?? It seems like this tutorial is incomplete. Is there a second page I’m not seeing?

    Thanks for the tutorial, I was able to recover the files but all files were renamed and original data structures were not recovered, instead each folder of file type was created and all the respective files were stored with system renamed files.

    Now, the question is that is there any workaround to restore the original data folder structures/files?
