External HD help...

#1 Post by mike79 » 18 Sep 2013, 05:26

I've got an external 500gb hd with 3 partitions on it. The last partition [DONE] got messed up.

Code: Select all

TestDisk 6.14-WIP, Data Recovery Utility, April 2012

Disk /dev/sdc - 500 GB / 465 GiB - CHS 60801 255 63
Current partition structure:
     Partition                  Start        End    Size in sectors

 1 E extended LBA             1   0  1 60800 254 63  976752000
No partition is bootable
 5 L HPFS - NTFS              1   1  1 19123 254 63  307210932 [FILES]
   X extended             19124   0  1 38246 254 63  307210995
 6 L HPFS - NTFS          19124   1  1 38246 254 63  307210932 [AUDIO]
   X extended             38247   0  1 60800 254 63  362330010
 7 L HPFS - NTFS          38247   1  1 60800 254 63  362329947 [DONE]







*=Primary bootable  P=Primary  L=Logical  E=Extended  D=Deleted
>[Quick Search]  [ Backup ]
                            Try to locate partition
I am able to list and copy my files from your program, but is there an easy way to fix my partition on this external HD? The other 2 partitions work fine in windows, but this 3rd one only shows as K: in windows and is all empty. How can I repair it, can you show me step by step what to do.

(I deleted several files, rebooted my pc and that's when it got all messed up)

Thanks.

I noticed, that after #7 (x Extended) is missing. Is this the reason maybe? Should I make #7 partition extended again?
