I have a hard-disk that was formatted or lost it's partition. I looked for the partition and found what seems to be the NTFS partition and the smaller partition in-front of it, maybe for boot. The choice I have after selecting the NTFS partition is
Code: Select all
Write partition table, confirm? <Y/N>.
I don't want to write over the hard-disk I need to data recover. Just in case I need to perform further analysis/scans/etc.
Hard-disk being scanned is 500GB, the external hard-disk is 1TB (empty).
Not sure which version of Windows the damaged hard-disk was formatted from and used for. Was apparently not re-formatted.
Hard-disk is recognized in Disk Management and Device Manager. No I/O errors or lags, crashing, etc. Hard-disk seems to be fine, with no partition visible.
