Error: size boot_sector xxx > xxx

#1 Post by johedon » 23 Feb 2018, 17:59

Hi,
Itry for many days to solve this pbm alone, but in despair I come to ask for a little help.
Under XP, a Seagate ST3- ST3120026AS (S for SATA) 120GB
Seagate technical spec pdf give CHS values of C16383 H16 S63 for the parrallel HD (ST3120026A without the S at the end), I cannot find tech specs for the sata, but I suppose it is exactly the same.
2 NTFS partitions C (Booting partition with XP) around 10 GB and D for the remaining (around 109 GB, Data partition).
I got Error: size boot_sector 234 436 482 > partition 213 953 670
testdisk.log is this:

I'm not that good with all this, I hope I'll be able to understand explanations if any comes back.
Anyway, thanks you in advance for help & time spent.

Run TestDisk 7.0, Advanced, select the second partition, Boot, RebuildBS, List.
If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer.
