A 400+GB log file upon crashing?

#1 Post by Deity666 » 21 Aug 2014, 13:42

Fell asleep with my Testdisk almost through running a three day scan on a 3 TB drive. Woke up and before I could get my coordinates, computer BSOD' me. Now, I have almost a 500 GB testdisk.log file. Uhhh wot?

Needless to say, neither Note nor Wordpad opens it.

Looks like all read operations have failed. Is your disk making unusual noise ?
The disk head is probably damaged

It doesn't seem so. I'm accessing the drive now doing an Intel search just for testing purposes - and it's making no noise and working.

I'm going to look to see if there is anything retrievable in this log, but I've got to find a program first. If anyone knows what to use, I'll check back.
