    not working only creating a lots of directory like recup_dir.(1..33) . inside that directory nothing found useful to recover the files or folder…

      @niraj

      Did you specify the type of files you want to recover, i mean the extensions? It worked fine for me, however, if you have stored more files recently on the partition you are trying to recover from, your files deleted earlier on get overwritten.

      Try to use it on another partition and see if it works. Thanks for the feedback.
