Recover deleted Binary files

The above command assumes the lost data is on /dev/sda and you previously issued the following command to mount _another_ disk or partition (/dev/sdb1) on /recovery

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /recovery

If you don't do this, the data could be overwrited!

foremost is a very powerful carving tool. By default foremost recovers all known file types. If you want to reduce the amount of files that are recovered you can specify the file type you are looking for. Read the man page to know the available file types.

i.e to recover JPEG pictures append to foremost the switch -tjpg
