no partition bootable ?

#1 Post by headsup »

Hi people

My seagate 3 Tb drive wont read , it shows as " zero bytes capacity"

running testdisk shows " No partition is bootable " , note the disc size is showing only 750 Gig

I ran " quick Search " and the DOS screen shows one partition is unrecoverable

I dont want to pay Seagate $99 for their software when their HDD failed inside warranty and they should be giving me that software for free !

see the attached screenshots.

what is the recommended procedure from here to recover CCTV files on this drive ?
