Shreding duplicated files before photorec (ext4, ntfs, linux)

admin 16 May , 2022 0 Comments data recovery

I’ve got two iso images that mostly contains the same data files, I would like to run photorec on both but before that I want to thoroughly clean redundant data to have much less gibberish to sort through photorec results.

One iso contains ext4 filesystem and other NTFS.

Will photorec see shreded files after shred -uvz?

Can there be other way to remove files so photorec won’t see them?
