At the moment I have replaced the hard disk for another and I am trying to recover the data from the broken HDD from a case that lets me connect the disk via USB to my laptop, running Debian 10 buster, at /dev/sdb
fdisk gives me Input/Output error e2fsck as well
Testdisk 7.0 is able to see all the data in the partition I am interested in recovering, and also sees all the partitions, as follows
TestDisk 7.0, Data Recovery Utility, April 2015

Code: Select all

Use Up/Down Arrow keys to select partition.

Afterwards I plan to use e2fsck and then copy the information somewhere else.
Could anybody help me?
