the following partition can't be recovered/ filesystem damaged

#1 Post by fetus » 24 May 2019, 10:11

Hi!
After a few episodes of blue screens on a win10 PC, a relatively new Intenso 5TB external HDD (named "Murmansk" drive letter I: file system:NTFS) with important documentaries and videos on it got RAW.
There is no physical damage on the HDD. I am not an expert on PCs.

I Initially followed the basic steps as follows:
create -> Disk /dev/sdd (disk selection) -> Intel -> Analyse -> Quick Search
After Quick Search I got these messages "Hard disk seems too small"
Image
and "the following partition can't be recovered/ filesystem damaged"

Boot sector
Status: Bad

Backup boot sector
Status: OK

Sectors are not identical.

A valid NTFS Boot sector must be present in order to access
any data; even if the partition is not bootable.
Are these steps that I followed the right steps or should I follow a different path?
Should I continue through "RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer." or should I do something else?
Should I backup the files that have been found with Deep Scan by a Data Recovery software before proceeding, (Only 1/3 of the files are found and could be recovered by the Data Recovery Software).
Your advice would be much appreciated. Thank you

Dear cgrenier, I appreciate your kindness trying to help me. Thank you so much
I tried "TestDisk, Advanced, Boot, BackupBS, confirm, Quit and restart" but unfortunately windows didn't see my HDD.

I tried again the sequence TestDisk, Advanced, Boot
Image
Image
and after "Boot" I get the following mesage:
Image
"Boot sector status OK
Backup boot sector status OK
Sectors are identical
A valid NTFS Boot sector must be present in order toaccess any data; even if the partition is bootable"
If I press "List" it says
"Can't open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged."

The content of the HDD is really important for me.. Is there anything more that could be done?
Thanks again.

Your testdisk log exhibits input/output errors on your "Murmansk" drive.

Please check the SMART parameters with smartmontools running smartctl -a /dev/sdX.
X stands for the label of your Intenso drive.

You can write the analysis directly into a file by using
smartctl -a /dev/sdX > c:\Intenso.txt
on a windows machine.

Attach that file to your posting as a file attachment.

Thank you recuparation for your kind reply.
I followed your advice and I get the following message:

Code: Select all

/dev/sdI: Unable to detect device type
Please specify device type with the -d option.

Use smartctl -h to get a usage summary
Could you please tell me what exactly should I type?

Sorry for that confusion!
Use a small letter instead of a big one.
I wrote the example with a big "x" to point out that is has to be replaced by your individual drive letter.

Thank you recuperation for you effort.
I typed using a small letter as follows:
smartctl -a /dev/sdi > c:\Intenso.txt
But the same message appears

Code: Select all

/dev/sdi: Unable to detect device type
Please specify device type with the -d option.

Any clue?

Does
smartctl -a /dev/hdi > c:\Intenso.txt
work?

If that fails, try out
smartctl -a /dev/sda > c:\test_a.txt
or
smartctl -a /dev/hda > c:\test_a.txt
and run through the alphabet:
smartctl -a /dev/sdb > c:\test_b.txt

Does that work?
You might post a picture of your drive management application where your collection of drives and volumes can be seen.
