Install Autopsy in Mac Studio 2022

Hello,

I’m trying to finish installing Autopsy on my Mac Studio 2022 and on the step where you have to lunch the script (sh unix_setup.sh) I get following error:

Checking prerequisites and preparing Autopsy:
---------------------------------------------
-n Checking for PhotoRec…
ERROR: PhotoRec not found, please install the testdisk package.

The steps I’m following os from the Cyber Social Hub: Installing Autopsy on macOS Big Sur – Cyber Social Hub

Anyone who could help me with this?

Many thanks in advance.

Did you install test disk/photrec as the preeeq in the install docs state? You need brew to install it.

Hi Mark,

thanks for the feedback. I actually followed all steps specified in the link I posted.
% brew install testdisk

As I’m working on a new machine I had to install all from ZERO (brew included) :slight_smile:
But it seems that I still cannot proceed from the step I mentioned, it’s still NOT FOUNDING PhotoRec from any reason… :frowning:

Cheers!!

Hi again Mark,

this is the output when I chekc the installed versions of PHOTREC and TESDISK:
