Recovery of 3 TB WD in RAW

#1 Post by tblack » 22 Mar 2014, 14:02

Hello,

I have been working on this drive for about a week in between work and having little success. I have recovered a small portion of the files I need using GetDataBack. Running Testdisk 6.14 in windows was taking an extraordinary amount of time (more than 48 hours).

The drive should be NTFS with GPT with a single partition. I have the entire drive cloned using ddrescue from a LiveCD. I also starting running Testdisk 6.13 from a LiveCD. It works great from the LiveCDquick scan takes about 4 hours and deepscan a bit longer. The only problem is either I am dumb and cannot track down where the testdisk.log is going or one is not being created. I have attached the log from windows the last time but it did not complete.

I have a few questions:
How do I specify a path to put the testdisk.log if using a livecd? Ideally just in the root of my OS C:.

When running TestDisk in deeper scan it found multiple partitions. The top partition listed seems to be the one it was specified as D MS Data and the full size of the disk. Using list files it said disk appears to be damaged and it could not access. Where should I be going from here? Probably need the log to answer that I am guessing.

Is there a way to get TestDisk to run at the same rate in Windows vs using the LiveCD?

Thank you in advance for your assistance. I really need to recover the data if at all possible.
