Usually, these devices include USB stick's, digital cameras , camcorders and etc. Chances are that you own and store personal data on a device with FAT flesystem is very high as is a likelihood of an accidental deletion of your important data. In this article we will use testdisk utility to undelete files from FAT file system.

Hi. I tried following this tutorial for testdisk but unfortunately I have no [Undelete] option visible, only [Type], [Image Creation] and [Quit]. I already tried every partition but always get the same menu. Any tips?
