Corrupted Kingston 8GB USB Flash

#1 Post by AlainDelon » 24 Jun 2014, 05:25

Hi Fiona and Christophe,

I read a few threads before I started such as http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/usb- ... -t462.html,
http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/anot ... t2865.html and http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/usb- ... t3413.html before using PhotoRec and Testsdisk.

I face the same problem as they do. I also read this http://diskdrive.wordpress.com/category/data-recovery/

I have a corrupted Kingston 8GB USB Flash drive that contains some data. The data is still there.
I managed to salvage 90 percentiles of the files.Recovered of all the files except for 2 Rich Text File(.rtf) corrupted files which were the root cause of the Kingston USB Flash drive to fail to work . For more, pls read my thread: http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/reco ... t3917.html

What does the result meant? Can I setup a boot sector since my file structure is OK?

I used TestDisk to read the Kingston 8GB USB Flash first with >[None] Non partitioned media
[Analyse].

I got this result >[None] Non partitioned media
[Analyse]

>Disk /dev/sdb - 7754 MB / 7395 MiB
>Disk /dev/sdc - 7754 MB/7395 MiB - CHS 942 255 63

Current partition structure:
Partition Start End Size in sectors
P unknown 0 0 1 942 186 12 15144960

>[Quick Search]
Disk /dev/sdc - 7754 MB/7395 MiB - CHS 942 255 63 [KINGSTON]
Partition Start End Size in sectors
>P FAT32 0 51 60 942 186 12 15141688
Structure:Ok.

Keys T:change type, P:list files,
FAT32, blocksize=4096,7752 MB/7393 MiB

I pressed P to list files not all files found, only html files are all there but not mp4.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
But when I used >[Intel] Intel/PC partition

>Disk /dev/sdc - 7754 MB/7395 MiB - Kingston Datatraveler 2.0
[Proceed]
>[Intel] Intel/PC partition
Disk /dev/sdc - 7754 MB/7395 MiB - CHS 942 255 63
[Analyse]

Partition sector doesn't have the end mark 0xAA55
Partition Start End Size in sectors
All empty

>[Deeper Search]
No partition found or selected for recovery
Keys A: add partition, L: load backup, Enter: to continue
No partition found or selected for recovery
>[Advanced] Filesystem Utils
No partition available

Pls advice.Thank you
