Hard disk not recognised in OC after rebuild BS

#1 Post by MuthuSaravanan » 14 Nov 2018, 12:46


My external hard disk had issues reading in PC. I used test disk to rebuild BS. after that my hard disk not even recognized by PC. I could see the drive of the hard disk but not listed in my computer.

I have loads of data stored in the hard drive, could you help me recover them.

If you run PhotoRec, does it recover your data ?
If there are read errors, clone the disk using ddrescue as described in https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf
