Having trouble recovering partition

#1 Post by miamigrrl » 30 Jun 2014, 23:18

Windows 7 system. My hard drive crashed and lost its partitions. I ran TestDisk and was able to recover 2 partitions but the largest partition (OS) is still inaccessible. It shows up on TestDisk as NTFS but shows up as RAW on Windows Disk Management.

When I write the table using TestDisk, it doesn't seem to write this one. I followed all the steps in the wiki. How can I recover this partition?

Thank you for any help!

Can you upload another screen shot from TestDisk / Advanced / Boot.
Under Advanced choose your OS-partition and confirm with Boot.
