Yeah, I noticed the single commit. As far as I can tell something is better than nothing.

I didn't read the entire file but yeah I uncommented/ created the proper line (It complains if you don't have at least one valid line.) My guess is it just didn't know how to look for what I wanted or maybe there was a compile error I missed. It's not really important, I moved on - which brings me to PhotoRec (in the testdisk package) it solved my problem.

Thanks anyhow.

It may not be an active git repo (only 1 commit).

And you checked the whole README file? In the README file:
Important note: The default configuration file, "scalpel.conf", has
all supported file patterns commented out--you must edit this file
before running Scalpel to activate some patterns.

The source is now here:

I was able to build and run. But it doesn't seem to be doing much when it's run. I am not sure if that's a configuration issue or what.
