The Following Partitions can't be recovered

#1 Post by Davidesd » 22 Jul 2014, 13:17

I friend of mine gave me his hard disk, he told me it had some problems but wasn't able to describe me the symptoms, nor the circumstances the symptos first appeared. All he cares is to recover some folder containing photos.
I've connected the disk on my pc (it's a old hard drive: Maxtor 6L120P0 120GB, with Parallel ATA interface). I'm able to access the disk folder both with Windows and Ubuntu, but it is terrible slow. I'm able to open some files, while others throw an exception (in Ubuntu i get this message: "Error: splicing file Input/output").

This is the log produced by Analyse, and you can see the images in the attachment. I've used Win7 64bit.

Check the harddisk size: HD jumpers settings, BIOS detection...
The harddisk (122 GB / 114 GiB) seems too small! (< 245 GB / 228 GiB)
