TestDisk Partition Analysis Stuck at 2%

#1 Post by jeremyofmany » 19 May 2015, 14:49

I removed a 640GB Western Digital Scorpio Blue HDD from my grandmother's laptop.
I connected it to my desktop using an external enclosure which is connected via USB.
When I connect it, it shows up two separate drives in Windows Explorer; neither of which I can access.
When using TestDisk, it is stuck at 2% of analyzing the partitions.

I attempted to run a chkdsk as well:

Can someone please assist me?

Do you have any bad sectors?
Can you check your disk using CrystalDiskInfo?
http://crystalmark.info/download/index-e.html
Please use the portable version, because the installer (exe) contains adware Open Candy.
If your correct partition would be still available in your partition table you could have a try to use Advanced / Boot and List to have a try to list your files and copy your important files to another healthy disk or partition.
Please upload a screen shot of testdisk / Analyse with your current partition structure to check it!
