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?
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!
