Help Recover or Repair Partition Segate GoFlex 500GB

#1 Post by Hakarune » 18 Jan 2014, 10:31

So I'm trying to repair my external drive or at least recover the partition and I can't seem to get anything to work right, I even tried to to dd the partition and mount in Linux, but no avail. The original file system was the default Segate NTFS setup, never changed.

When I start the app for my drive I get this message off the bat.

Code: Select all

Hint: None partition table type has been detected.
Note: Do NOT select 'None' for media with only a single partition. It's very
rare for a drive to be 'Non-partitioned'.

Analysis of Drive:

Drive F: - 500 GB / 465 GiB - CHS 60800 255 63
Current partition structure:
     Partition                  Start        End    Size in secto

 1 * Sys=72               13577 238 11 119521 238 60 1701990410

Bad relative sector.
 2 * Sys=74               45381  70  3 79242  34 29  543974724

Bad relative sector.
 3 * NetWare 3.11+        10498  56 41 10498  56 40          0

Bad relative sector.
Only one partition must be bootable
Space conflict between the following two partitions
 1 * Sys=72               13577 238 11 119521 238 60 1701990410
 2 * Sys=74               45381  70  3 79242  34 29  543974724

*=Primary bootable  P=Primary  L=Logical  E=Extended  D=Deleted
I've done "quick scan" and "deeper scan" but nothing seems to give me the option to write. The original system was an NTFS external drive (plugged into Linux it is read as NTFS, but won't mount and Windows wants to Format it. In TestDisk it says "Hint: choose none" when I go to examine the drive. I also tried running the drive as an Intel setting. Nothing bares fruit, can someone help me please :( ?

I created a dd of both partitions (72 and 74) and both returned "Image created successfully but read errors have occurred."

I tried to mount the image.dd files (but they're RAW) in Ubuntu and continually receive:

Code: Select all

mount: you must specify the filesystem type

Code: Select all

sudo fdisk -l ~/share/image.dd
Disk /home/hakarune/share/image.dd: 388.4 GB, 388422383104 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 47222 cylinders, total 758637467 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x249061c1

Disk /home/hakarune/share/image.dd doesn't contain a valid partition table
I also tried to use OSFMount to mount them, but again it says no file system structure and I can't access the image files.

I have tried every method I could think of and the internet's knowledge database, but nothing.

 5 L Linux                 9725  15 11  9802 144 62    1245184 [preinstall]

I can re-scan using "none" if that needs to be posted too, it did give more partitions found, but said cannot write because there wasn't a file system type.
