"Analyze cylinder ...... 246%" ??

#1 Post by Salticidae »

Been running TestDisk 6.14 for nearly 48 hours.

Running Windows 7 64-bit here, trying to fix a Seagate Backup Plus 3TB external that went "RAW" the other day. Windows asked me to format it; of course I chose "no".

Puzzled as to why it didn't stop at 100%.


Also I don't know if I might have done something wrong... Should I have chosen "Intel" or EFI GPT" for the partition table type?

Tons of music on this I ripped from my own vinyl + tape collection going back at least a decade, would be a shame to lose it :(

Thanx in advance!

Funny problem ;-)

Please select the physical disk, not the windows drive J:, and reports the results.
