RAW after chkdsk ; testdisk's list is fine

#1 Post by eldavo »

Since I've been absent for a few days I decided to keep my pc on while doing chkdsk /B D: .
D: is a 4tb single ntfs partition, 2 of them are busy.
When I came back I found out the filesystem became RAW.
On event viewer, I get thousands of:
"the master file table is damaged, the reference number of the file is 0x1000000000000 , couldn't determine file name"
Luckily, testdisk:
1)Immediately recognized the partition and the filesystems
2)Lists every file with no problem!! I even tried recovering some of them , it works!
3)It says boot sectors are ok
4)It says MFT and MFTMirr match

Unfortunately I don't have another drive to copy the data into. How can we solve this problem?
Thank you!

You can try a "chksk /f D:" but you really should copy your files to another disk.
