'Can't open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged'. All hope lost?

#1 Post by BlockABoots »

Stupidly changed partition on a 3TB drive from MBR to GPT , the drive is currently in an 'unallocated' state as i dont want to convert it to a 'New Simple Drive' in fear of destroying any data on the drive. Have run testDisk and started the analyse search which has now finished which has presented me this screen....

but im not sure what steps i need to do next, i did press 'P' to list files but when doing so i get the following message, 'Can't open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged' but it appears to have saved loads of folders from the deleted partition to my J drive (but with randomly generated file names)

Am i supposed to change the drive partition characteristics to Primary and then write and restart the PC?

heres the log, it might not be the full log as i put the PC into sleep half way from testdisk's search???...
