Topic: Device > attempting to recover data.
I'm new to data recovery and gparted. If this has been answered elsewhere please point me gently in the right direction.
I am attempting to recover data from a 1000 Gbyte connected to by usb3 to a system running Linux Mint 19.3.
On the gparted screen the disk shows as "unallocated 931GiB"
at the bottom of the screen it shows "searching for filesystems on /dev/sdg (which is correct) with a "green" bar
moving from side to side.
It has now been running for approx 18 hours. Is it working and I'm just being impatient or isn't it?
If it is running is it possible to give a rough estimated as to how long it will take. Would
it be better to close it down and try another program. If yes, recommendations please.
