This partition ends after the disk limits (1TB)

#1 Post by filipous » 26 Aug 2012, 01:54

Dear Gurus,

I'm facing very similiar situation to http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/post ... imit#p3434 , but with different size of disk and I do not know if I can apply the very same steps like in "try folowwing" from http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/post ... icky#p1093

If so, what should be the cylinder value?

My disc:
WESTERN DIGITAL WD My Book Essential 1TB Ext. 3.5" USB2.0, 16MB cache (single drive)

Using TestDisk 6.14WIPwin64 on W7 Home.

Log:

Check the harddisk size: HD jumpers settings, BIOS detection...
The harddisk (999 GB / 930 GiB) seems too small! (< 2651 GB / 2469 GiB)
The following partition can't be recovered:
FAT32 57627 52 10 322344 7 21 4252675782

Thanks a lot for any feedback.
Filip

Don't select H: but the physical drive if possible.

simulate write!

write_mbr_i386: starting...
write_all_log_i386: starting...
No extended partition

TestDisk exited normally.
All ideas and hints are really apreciated.
Thanks and have a good rest of weekend.

I really feel that my issue is similiar to
http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/post ... imit#p3434
and
http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/post ... icky#p1093

but I do not know what should be the number of cylinders for my 1TB WD harddisk.
Can somebody support me?

Cheers, Filip
