Boot sector status good but backup is bad

#1 Post by Sweetfacesnc » 20 May 2013, 18:53

I have a western digital MyBook 2TB which started having issues on my pc, it would hang whenever I tried to view pictures. I ran WD DLGDIAG and it reported too many bad sectors. So I then proceeded to run testdisk and it said Boot Sector Status: OK BAckup Boot sector status: BAD. I tried to copy the boot sector over the backup but that wouldn't work. I ran a quick analysis on what is detected as a non partitioned drive. I'm now running a deeper search which is taking forever but I can be patient. Is there another solution recommended while I wait for the deep search? :shock:

Ok update, learning more about testdisk in the process! I was using the 64bit version to test my drive (pc is running windows 8 64) so as suggested in another post, I installed the 32 bit version and I get a whole new set of issues. I'm on my iPad making this post so I will share what I can. The initial scan in 64bit showed read errors and the bad boott sector copy. I also selected none as the type of partition which is what was already selected by the program. Now that I'm running the 32bit, the deep search is running much quicker and intel was the default chosen. So far it has found this:

Disk /dev/sdc -2000 GB / 1862 GiB - CHS 243198 255 63
Analyse cylinder 128432/243197: 52%

HPFS - NTFS 0 32 33 243197 57 60 3906961408 [My Book]
Check_FAT: can't read FAT boot sector
Invalid FAT boot sector
0 D FAT16 >32M 259834 59 32 494839 162 10 3775361793
FAT16 >32M 259834 59 32 494839 162 10 3775361793

After the deep search finishes I will post a more in depth log. Hoping that this is an error that can be fixed.

Thanks, Lori

]Ran another deep search and this is what I'm getting, where to go now?? I've searched the forums but there a lot of other users that have sat out there waiting for replies, hoping someone can give me something to work with :P
