ext. HD showing RAW with all partitions bootable ? advice?

#1 Post by bosstang » 23 Dec 2013, 10:58

I have an Seagate 500GB external drive that suddenly crapped out on me. How do i repair (make only one partitions bootable and resolve the space conflict between the two partitions? Also, is the Netware 3.11 partition suppose to be the bootable one? any help greatly appreciated.

here is my log file:

Windows affects a drive letter to a partition, so it's useless to search a partition inside a partition.
When starting TestDisk, choose the PhysicalDisk, not the drive.

It looks like not all disks are listed: be careful to start TestDisk from an administrator account.
