Unable to choose 'Boot' under advanced settings on order to recover MFT?

#1 Post by fatpizza » 10 Jun 2019, 10:44

Hi,

I'm trying to recover the MFT of a GPT disk and when I go to advanced I don't get the 'Boot' option as described in the FAQ?
When I choose my partition I only get the option to create an image, when considering my disc is 12TB it isn't really an option.
Anything I'm missing here?

Thanks.

Using Type, you can try to force the force the type to MS Data and NTFS. Try to fix the NTFS boot sector and only try to fix the MFT if nothing works.
