:cry: :cry: I lost some very very important files in my hard drive that failed me. These are truly worth my life to me and I have been dealing with the anxiety and stress of it all along. I am trying to do everything I can to recover anything from it that I can at the moment but am receiving a warning error from test disk which isn't allowing me to finish.


Things that may help you to know:
[*]Drive Failed prior to doing a quick format
[*]Did a Quick Format after my drive failed(Unknowing what it does)


Errors:
[*]Sector per track mismatches

Don't search partitions inside a partition (E:). Only search for partitions in a disk...

As you have done a quick format, use PhotoRec to recover your data (original files won't be found). Be careful to store the files on another disk.

I first would like to thank you for making such a program that even gives people in my circumstane the opportunity to retrieve their lost or damaged data.


In regards to your advice I don't understand much. Are you saying to not search for the lost files that's on my failed hard drive connected via USB which is then connecting to a system with a partition of its own?

If that is what you mean, I wouldn't know of any other way to make this recovery possible. Because if I was to install my failed HDD in a system via Sata how would I be able to run a OS in order to open these recovery software's?
