"Filesystem seems damaged" issue

#1 Post by Ultronium » 10 Nov 2014, 09:29

hello everyone!!

i have a very critical problem going on with my lap top.

i lost a whole partition of my hdd (Seagate ST750LM022), the one that contains ALL MY WORK, PERSONAL FILES EVERYTHING!

i tried too use testdisk, since i used this awesome program before to recover raw system partition successfully, and after a quick search, i had this unfamiliar issue: heads/cylinders mismatch:

i tried to follow the indication and change the value from 16 to 255 in geometry configuration, it seems that it worked , i found the lost partition after after a deep search, but when i list the files, nothing is found:

i really don t know what to do anymore, i don't want to format the partition, my whole life is in there, and recovery tool photorec recovers the files without directories which is inconvenient because i have hundreds of thousands of files in there, (470 GB in the partition)

please help, maybe i missed a step in testdisk procedure.

thank you.
