Using Testdisk and determining Disk Size

#1 Post by Bill » 20 Feb 2013, 00:49

When I use test disk, the program sees my external drive which is a 500GB Seagate as FAT Start 0 1 1, End 140 254 63, size in sectors 2265102.

Using Disk Management it sees it as F: 1.08 GB RAW, 464.68 GN unallocated.

My question is simply this: Does the TestDIsk size in sectors on see the 1.08 GB RAW or the whole disk? How do you calculate the size TestDisk sees so that I can be sure it is seeing the whole disk?

What can be done in TestDisk to see the complete disk... When I run analyze the status shows xxxx/60800 X%. How does the 60800 equate to the disk size?

COMPUTERS!!!!!!!!!! Ugh!

After picking target disk, on next sacreen in 4-th line from above You shall see TestDisk calculation of size.
If its not correct, You need to go to Geometry, and put correct numbers for cylinders, heads, etc
Then go to Analyse...
