No Access to harddrive

I have no access to my harddrive. It shows the harddrive on computer, but i am not able to open the drive. I ve analyzed it with TestDrive in Normal and Deeper Mode. Output in pictures.

I have the same thing, I looked in testdisk.pdf where it suggests use chkdsk /f which I did at the very start of this episode, it seemed to go into the "wait the rest of your life mode while it does something and yield nothing".

But I can get access to and get files off the unseen partition using testdisk which is the valuable part. I can only assume the mod is directing us to page 22 of the manual.
