Drive reports "Bad relative sector"

#1 Post by DOOMsayer » 09 Sep 2012, 15:24

Hi,

I have a 320GB Samsung drive ,with 3 NTFS partitions on it (one of them has Windows installed on it)
Recently the drive has reported during boot "NTLDR is missing" ,so I went on to try and recover it.

I connected the disk as a slave to my Linux machine ,and TD gave me the following output:
Analyse Disk /dev/sdb - 320 GB / 298 GiB - CHS 38913 255 63
Geometry from i386 MBR: head=116 sector=50
BAD_RS LBA=1869771365 1093248
check_part_i386 1 type 69: no test
BAD_RS LBA=1701519481 5967333
check_part_i386 2 type 73: no test
BAD_RS LBA=2573 5967333
check_part_i386 3 type 74: no test
Current partition structure:
1 * Novell 116387 225 36 126888 82 1 168689522

Bad relative sector.
2 * Sys=73 105914 175 47 222309 108 57 1869881465

Bad relative sector.
3 * Sys=74 0 40 54 0 40 53 0

Bad relative sector.
Only one partition must be bootable
Space conflict between the following two partitions
2 * Sys=73 105914 175 47 222309 108 57 1869881465
1 * Novell 116387 225 36 126888 82 1 168689522


Running both quick search ,and deep search ,gave me the below message:
Ask the user for vista mode
Computes LBA from CHS for Disk /dev/sdb - 320 GB / 298 GiB - CHS 38914 255 63
Allow partial last cylinder : Yes
search_vista_part: 1

search_part()
Disk /dev/sdb - 320 GB / 298 GiB - CHS 38914 255 63

Results

interface_write()

No partition found or selected for recovery


Can you suggest what can I do in order to restore the partitions?

Thanks,
Doom.

After Quick Search, try Deeper Search. If your partitions are found, rewrote the partition table.
