Partition not visible even after a deep search !!!

#1 Post by allouti » 13 May 2015, 09:00

Hello,

I am tying to fix a partition than became "RAW" and since I'm not an expert I was trying to follow the tutorial TestDisk Step by Step

Before the analysis I can see all the partitions and the corrupted one is marked as Invalid NTFS or EXFAT Boot :

But after a quick and a deep search this partition does not appear anymore :

Moreover I had this message after each search concerning the number of head per cylindre :
message head cylinder.PNG
Message after search
message head cylinder.PNG (53.62 KiB) Viewed 731 times
The data that I could loose if I make a mistake are very important for me so I am affraid to do anyting that is not on the tutorial. Is there a way to get this partition back and what should I try ?

I thank in advance those who can help me.

Regards,
Fayçal.

Re: Partition not visible even after a deep search !!!

Can you run TestDisk / Advanced / Boot and RebuildBS?
Your affected partition must be selected.
If RebuildBS was succesful, you can use the menu list to have a try to list your files.
It's only intended as a diagnose only.
As long as you don't confirm at Write and RepairMFT, nothing will be changed.

Hello,
Thank you for your answer,
I tried "rebuildBS" without success.
Actually, I recently remembered that when I first set my laptop up I have chosen to encrypt my drive with the HP encrytion tool and it seems that the probleme is here. I have a the key to decrypt but I don't know the procedure.
I'm not sure testdisk could help.

Kind regards,

Testdisk cannot work on encrypted disks and partitions.
Can you decrypt your disk/partition?
Does HP offer an opportunity to remove encryption, even if a hdd or partition failed?
In case contact the HP support.
