RAW external HDD smart OK testdisk OK

#1 Post by coba » 28 Dec 2014, 15:12

Hello, I'm having a problem with an external HDD WD Element 2GB. It suddenly became raw and I can't read it.

I have passed Smart check and it seems to be ok

Then I ran testdisk, I am able to see the list of files

I wrote the new partition structure
Image

It required me to restart, but after doing that the hdd is still raw
Image

Boot sector is ok and identical

I don't know what could be my problem or If I'm missing something. Any help will be greatly appreciated

Run "cmd" (right click run as administrator") and type "chkdsk /f d:" (replace d: by the correct drive letter).
Does it fix the problem ?

Thank you for your answer. I managed to save the data via Linux :)

Hi Coba,

Did you run the "chkdsk /f" command?

How did you manage to save your via Linux?

I am in the same situation and would need some help...

Thanks
