Can't open filesystem. Can't decipher log file.

#1 Post by ReggieS » 11 May 2014, 04:02

I feel like my log file is telling me useful information that could help me fix the filesystem of a lost partition that I am trying to recover, but I need help analyzing what the log file is saying.

I can read the files of this partition:
HPFS - NTFS 5100 0 1 10010 254 63 78895215

but this is the partition I am trying to recover:
HPFS - NTFS 2550 0 1 5099 254 63 40965750

I would love to figure out how to understand the log files, but I don't know where to begin. Any information that would lead me in the right direction would be appreciated.

Using TestDisk, you can recover this lost partition. Use the arrow keys to switch the partitions to recover to P(rimary) or L(ogical). But as the filesystem is very damaged, you will have to try other data recovery utilities or use PhotoRec to recover your data from this partition.
