Partition write error

#1 Post by iabrego »

Hi all,

I am trying to recover a lost partition that has about 750GB of data in a Seagate Barracuda 1TB external drive attached to a USB enclosure. With Testdisk I have been able to copy to mi laptop the most important data (thanks for that!) but when I try to write the new partition the application gives an error "Partition write error". Please find attached screenshots of all the procedure and the log file.

Thanks in advance for your help!
