MFT problem. No MFTmirror is there.

#1 Post by b0r3d » 04 Jan 2015, 16:21

HP 500 GB of external HDD. I checked using "chkdsk" but after 24 hrs it stopped in the second phase of index verification
and highlighted the error of MFT is corrupted and it aborted.
Then using TestDisk_win
Advanced Options-> Boot-> Repair MFT
"It says can't read NTFS MFT"
Current Boot Status of HDD:-
Boot Sector Status:OK
Backup Boot Sector Status: Ok

Sectors are identical
Plzz direct me. :geek:

You can try TestDisk, Advanced, Boot, RepairMFT.
If it doesn't work, use PhotoRec to recover your data (original filenames won't be recovered)

So are you saying at this juncture to forget about the mirror image of the MFT and go another route.
