Windows can see the drive.. Write failure

#1 Post by jestexman »

I can see drive,folders and files, i can even copy some of them through windows. But at some point i will get a windows write failure error. I am trying to use TestDisk to recover my files from this drive so it can be reformatted or thrown in the trash. It keeps saying it cant find a partition and i cant list any files to recover.

I can see my drive it just will not find a partition so i can list my files to recover...

If no partition is listed in the Advanced menu, use Analyse, Quick Search and Deeper Search if you still have nothing.
