Moved HDD, massive issue

#1 Post by pimfram » 03 Feb 2015, 19:28

I had an external 4tb WD MyBook drive which had a problem with what I assumed was the USB controller so I put it into my computer as an internal drive. The problem is that Windows 8.1 sees the drive as RAW, and therefore cannot be used before being formatted. I've run TestDisk and all my files are accessible and non-corrupted. The drive is under warranty, though is likely void since I opened the enclosure, because I figured my odds of the drive booting fine were greater than the data I would have lost if I were to RTM the drive.

*EDIT: After a lot of research, it does appear there is an encryption-type issue when removing the USB interface which makes the drive essentially unfixable without formatting it. I'm in the process of backing up the data I care about and will simply wipe the rest and that will be that.

I forgot to take a screenshot of the finished scan but I have a log.
