TestDisk stuck at Search mft

#1 Post by Kirangundurao » 19 Feb 2015, 12:46

I have a bad harddisk and i am trying to recover the photos that I have in them.

The partition is shown as RAW in windows.

Testdisk identifies bad ntfs boot sector and when i try to copy the backup BS, it did not work.

I tried to rebuild BS, but testdisk was stuck at "Search mft" for more than 8 hours.

Please help for futher steps.

Thanks.

If it doesn't work, you will have to try PhotoRec

Tried photorec.

It was stuck at "Disk Identification. Please wait .." for more than 30 min.

I am connecting my damaged disk via USB.

Is this normal?

thanks
