filesystem damaged ... how to recover data?

#1 Post by thethrasher1 » 10 Apr 2014, 10:03

Yesterday I've formatted my 1.5Tb drive for a mistake
I was creating a usb flash drive for istalling linux by usb but i forgot to change the letter and the program formatted my drive in fat32 and write also 1.3gb of files.
I run tetdisk and a deep search found the old ntfs partition (as large as the disk) but it say that partition can t be recovered
And if i try to list files i can t see it ( it says that the filesystem seems damaged)
Photorec can recover my data but i lose all filenames and for 800gb of files is hard to rename all
If i rewrite the partition table with the old partition table (with only an ntfs partition) i lose my data or i can recover all files?
How can i recover files with the filenames and directory ? Is there a way to recover the whole filesystem?

Sorry for my bad english

When using TestDisk, use Analyse, Quick Search, Deeper Search, set the NTFS partition as *(bootable) or P(rimary), the other partitions as D(eleted). On next screen, choose Write, confirm, BackupBS, confirm, Quit.
