Question for partition recover of Mac

#1 Post by davidzharp »

Dear All,

I'm Mac user and OSX version is 10.8.2. I'm very forst time for using Testdisk.
I am using my Mac for work with 3TB removable hard disk drive formatted Mac OSX extended journal..
My removable HDD was divided 3 partitions per 1TB.
Recently, I had accident of disappear one of removable HDD partitions in Finder.
In that partition, so many important data are in there for my work.
Executed Disk utility which is Mac application utility, disappeared partition is displayed grey color which means unmounted as already you know.
So I tried verify and repair partition in 'Disk utility'App and displayed massage 'The volume is appeared OK'. However that partition also cannot be mounted.

My question is how I can use Testdisk for my removeable HDD recovery. I already found the instruction for Mac OSX extended journal formatted HDD in Testdisk website. However I could not found it.
So please let me know the possibility of my HDD recovery and the recommended instruction for using Testdisk on my Mac.
