dd copied over 2TB disk! Help!

#1 Post by dentman »

I've tried Testdisk with these settings.
I would suggest to have try to rebuild your boot sector.

Start TestDisk.
Confirm through until you see the menu Analyse.
Don't confirm at Analyse but Advanced.
Confirm at Boot with enter also.
Highlight Rebuild BS and hit Enter.
Rebuild your BS will be in progress.
Normally, it takes some minutes.
If it's finished, please post the infos or upload a screen.
If you see a menu List, please highlight it and press enter.
Please let us know, do you see your data or an error message.
To get back to the previous screen, easily press q for Quit.

This is day 3 of rebuild BS and it's almost done. Here's what it says. I think it's days away and it won't work.

What should I do?
