all partitions marked "D" like deleted

#1 Post by habmalnefrage »


I have a hard disk, on which Windows 7 was installed. Unfortunately this disk isn't recognized anymore. The disk spins and starts but only to a black screen with a blinking underscore.
Unfortunately a colleague of mine did chkdsk on this disk. Before this workaround the disk starts at least to the Windows start screen.

Testdisk only shows 6 "D" partitions, thus all as "deleted". The first one is the system one, which is also marked as deleted.

I did "list files" at all deleted partitions.
Partitions 2-4 showing error message "can't open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged". The last 2 partitions are showing files but not those I would need.
Please see attached screenshots.

Anyone an idea how to solve this issue and get files back?

Thank you in advance.
Best wishes,
