How to proceed

#1 Post by nipponvj » 14 Aug 2014, 19:15

Hello!
This is my first post and I would be very thankful if somebody can help me.
I have one HD with two partitions and due to power failure the system partition has malfunction.
It is a 1TB partition which was 800GB used, after the failure the OS (windows 8.1) fail to boot, after one attempt to repair from the OS with no result, I have found that the system partiton now shows only 90 gb used and most of the files are missing.
This is the result when I run TESTDRIVE on the partition affected (the other one works properly)

If I press INTEL I get this

Any idea how I should proceed?
Thanks!

You shouldn't select any drive but your physically disk instead.
What's your OS?
TestDisk 32bit is recommended, if you're running windows.
Your drive is treated like a partition.
A partition doesn't have a MBR nor partition table.
That's why testdisk doesn't display your partition tabel (current partition structure) correctly.

Thank you for your repley Fiona,
The faulty HD was running Windows 8.1, the system where I am running Testdrive is Windows 7.
