The Harddisk seems too small

#1 Post by chumps52 » 22 Apr 2014, 11:21

Hi,


I'm new to this.
My PC consists of two drives:
A 250GB SSD for Programs and the OS, and a 1TB WD HDD for Documents etc.

I booted up my PC this morning and the HDD wasn't functioning (There was a powercut last night, I assume it interrupted something).
Disk management shows this: Image

I ran an analysis on TestDisk, which at around 60% came up with this: Image


This is the full log as it appears in testdisk.log:

Code: Select all

Does anyone know what to do? :/
I need these files back...

Thanks in advance, and sorry if this was badly worded!

Run TestDisk, Boot, select the "FAT" partition, use 't' to change its type to 7 (NTFS), Boot,
if the option is listed, choose BackupBS, confirm, Analyse, Quick Search, if your NTFS partition is listed, choose Write, confirm, Quit
Please post the new log file if you have problems.
