Recently, I screwed up a partition resize on a Windows machine (an HP Pavallion dv7 3180-us to be precise) and found through gparted that my entire Windows partition is now unallocated space!
Since it's an unallocated partition, TestDisk won't add it to the table. However, I can see the files with Photorec, and it can recover them until I run out of space, but I can't figure out how to get them off the computer! I can't use the USB drive to transfer the files, it says it's "read only".
Any help would be appreciated, though I am not an expert Linux user. Thank you.
Edit I can see the files through Photorec and create the recovery directory, but I don't know how to get them off the local /home/ directory
