RAW recovery

#1 Post by tripko82 » 02 Jun 2014, 09:09

Hi

I had success using test disk few times in history, but now i can't seem to fix this drive.
its a 1 gb WD with 2 partitions, and it was not a system disk, just for data...
I belive it was just a power failure...

I tried using both 7.0 and 6.14 versions

here is a log file

Check the harddisk size: HD jumpers settings, BIOS detection...
The harddisk (1000 GB / 931 GiB) seems too small! (< 1476 GB / 1374 GiB)

in 64 bit version i also tried analyzing the logical drive not the physical disk and here are some errors

There is no necessity to use the 64bit version.
As long as your OS supports WOW64 (32bit emulation) you can use the 32bit-version.
It's recommended to select your physically disk, instead of a drive.

TestDisk displays your partition table containing 2 partitions.
They're Intel standard.
Would it be possible that your partition/s appear as RAW (unformatted)?
Perhaps a problem with your boot sector or file system?

Can you list your data by marking a partition and pressing p?
