Would you please tell me how to recover the partitions properly? I wonder how to add new partiotion as boot section, or to set Geometry, but have no idea how to perfume in detail. Thanks in advance.

- Seagate ST31005 28AS 1TB (diskutil_info.txt) connected to Mac OS X 10.8.4 through USB3.0-SATA
- Four independent(?) partition found as 'img00.png', looks in green, what I want to salvage are in the 4th
- [Quick Search] has shown as 'img01.png', and after [Write] and reboot the machine, the HDD could not be recognized
as 'img2.png' (In Japanese, "The set disk was not able to be read by this machine.")
- [Deeper Search] revealed with 'testdisk.log.zip'

Best Regards,

You have choosen to write the wrong partition table. The original one was correct. Please run TestDisk, Analyse, Quick Search, Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer.

Once it's done, as root, run

Code: Select all

fsck.xfs /dev/disk1s4

Dear cgrenier,
Great, thanks to your advice, what I want to get: '/dev/disk1s4' has been perfectly recovered. Here's procedure for viewer's information:
run TestDisk, Analyse, Quick Search, Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer
Done properly with testdisk.log (attached in this reply)
Once it's done, as root, run
fsck.xfs /dev/disk1s4
Unfortunately my Terminal of Mac OS X 10.8.4 don't have the command 'fsck.xfs' on default, so handled with:
- Ubuntu 12.04 as guest OS of VMware Fusion 5 (maybe VirtualBox also could be good)
- installing 'xfsprogs' command (img00.jpg) could get found '/dev/disk1s4' partition with mounted properly (img01.jpg)

Thanks,
