Re: invalid partition table

Looks like you have deleted your windows partition. After Analyse/Quick Search/Deeper Search, use 'p' to list the files from your Windows partition. When you have found the correct partition, set this partition as *(bootable). On next screen, choose Write, confirm, BackupBS and confirm, Quit and res...

Re: Cannot seem to fix the drive.

Enable SMART monitoring in your BIOS setup.
It may help your disk to use spare sectors to replace damaged one.
If rewriting the partition still doesn't work, clone your disk to a new empty one (can be bigger) using ddrescue, read https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf for an howto.
good luck

Read https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf chapter "Repairing filesystem".
If it doesn't work, try PhotoRec, see chapter "Recovering deleted files using PhotoRec"

Re: I think I screwed up

When testdisk lists the partition, you can try 'p' to list the files. This may help to recover the correct partitions. If nothing works, you can always use latest PhotoRec 7.1-WIP on whole disk. If you recover few valid files, as you have move/merge/... the partitions, you may have to enable the exp...

Re: TestDisk time

You wrote My recovery folder (the copy destination) shows 49GB of data and 1300 files, but nothing is actually in it. There is probably a subfolder named "Album 1". TestDisk shows a very high number of failed copies, I don't know why. It may be faster to run PhotoRec but it doesn't recover the origi...

Re: My Story (Or, Trying to Save a Data Drive Borked by Linux! Help, Please1)

It's usually a bad idea to boot from the same disk you are trying to repair. It's better to boot from another disk or even an USB key. You can search for the NTFS partition using TestDisk. Read https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf chapter "Recovering deleted partition using TestDisk". Note that L...

Re: Recovering DOS Executables

The "MZ" signature alone generates too many false positives. It's why only Win PE or DOS with COFF extension are recovered by PhotoRec.
If you really want those files, create a photorec.sig file with

Code: Select all

exe 0 "MZ"
