Recovery WD Caviar black 1To

#1 Post by GuillaumeC » 27 Aug 2012, 21:59

Hi !

I lost my /home partition :oops:
Please help !
I lost 2 days by trying to fix it.

I have 3 primary partitions : 2 partitions in ext4 ( / and /home) and 1 for the swap

Here is my results before a quick search :

Code: Select all

TestDisk 6.13, Data Recovery Utility, November 2011
Christophe GRENIER <grenier@cgsecurity.org>
http://www.cgsecurity.org

Disk /dev/sdd - 1000 GB / 931 GiB - CHS 121601 255 63
Current partition structure:
     Partition                  Start        End    Size in sectors

 1 * Linux                    0  32 33  4863  15 16   78123008
 2 P Linux Swap            4863  15 17  5835 158 19   15624192
No ext2, JFS, Reiser, cramfs or XFS marker
 3 P Linux                 5835 158 20 121601  57 56 1859774464
 3 P Linux                 5835 158 20 121601  57 56 1859774464
and after a quick search

Code: Select all

The harddisk (1000 GB / 931 GiB) seems too small! (< 2446 GB / 2278 GiB)
Check the harddisk size: HD jumpers settings, BIOS detection...

The following partition can't be recovered:
     Partition               Start        End    Size in sectors
>  FAT32                223314 138  4 297488 227 35 1191610949
then

Run TestDisk, Advanced, select your /home partition, choose Superblock and use the given values to run fsck.ext4
