This is harder than I expected

#1 Post by Tinkerer »

To summarize events, something- still don't know what- blew out the file structure of a partition on a 2TB drive. I had had one section of the drive set for back-ups, 1tb for media files, and the rest was partitioned for Linux. I already recovered all the media files to a new drive using Recuva, but figured I'd see if I could recover the file structure using TestDisk anyway. The result was losing the back-up and Linux partitions.

I ran TD again, and got a warning that the disk "seems to be too small." Hit continue and got a warning that "the number of heads per cylinder is 255 but the correct value may be 8."

Now I'm at this screen, and am stuck on what move to make next.
