Can TestDisk "Write" a Partition?

#1 Post by RoamingDoc2013 »

I have a CRC error on a WD 500GB (older) MyPassport.
I've not been able to access it with DiskPart... and ChkDsk is hard without a 'drive' letter or mount point. Windows 7 sees it as inactive, DiskPart says it "is" active.
TestDisk sees it but NO partitions. Won't write TestDisk MBR...

Great program... thanks.
