Your disk is still a basic disk not a GPT disk.
Hopefully that you didn't format it?
If you already created an unformatted partition, then please delete it.
If you deleted your partition;
Right click on the square on the left with your description Disco 2 and básico and convert it to GPT.
Then, you'd be able to recreate your situation!

Hi I have the same problem with a 3tb hd. Should I start a new thread or continue with this one?

My situation. 3tb Hd GUID NTFS. Has been my media drive for over 8 mo now no problems. Lasn night start getting errors in utorrent. Reboot computer and the HD showed up as unformatted...not good. Run testdisk; says boot sector is bad but the backup is good. Restore bootsector from backup. Reboot. Now testdisk says both boot sectors are bad. Not sure where to go from here but GetDataBackNTFS is able to find my files but they're in a jumbled state. Have not tried restoring any files. Not sure what to do.

Note My 3tb HD was sitting at 2.2tb or so used. Also Win7 32.

Thanks.

Please use "Type" to add your previuos file system.
In some cases, if you open Type to add your file system, you can see anothe MS Data.
Please check it and confirm with enter.
Now you should be able to add for example NTFS.
Then anothe menu "Boot" should appear.
If the backup of your boot sector is ok, you can have a try to list your files.
If both, your boot sector and its beackup are bad, you should run "Rebuild BS".
Afterwards the menu "List" appears also.
Please check, do you see your data or an error message.

Please let me know.

Re: Help me to recover 3TB HD strange problem.

my wd 3TB has been Filled files more than 2TB, i try plug in with the linksys e3200 router,

Your disk has a 4KB sector size.
That's why you can use Intel MBR to manage partitions up to about 16 TB.
But there's a catch, it's only intended to run on USB.
Immediately if a BIOS recognizes a Disk bigger than 2.2 TB, it will be limited to Intel MBR and 2.2 TB.
The BIOS will emulate your disk to get it bootable as 512 Bytes sector size.
This can cause a loss of data or lead to any strange behaviour.
At least, you should copy your available data to another intact disk first.
If you list your files using testdisk, at the bottom of the display you'll find the commands.

You have a partition in your partition tbale.
This partition uses the whole 3 TB space.

You can have a boot sector diagnose like in this case;

If all your data are getting listed, please let me know.

Looks like your file system doesn't get recognized.
Please use "Type" to add your previuos file system.
In some cases, if you open Type to add your file system, you can see another MS Data.
Please check it and confirm with enter.
Now you should be able to add for example NTFS.
Then another menu "Boot" should appear.
If the backup of your boot sector is ok, you can have a try to list your files.
If both, your boot sector and its beackup are bad, you should run "Rebuild BS".
If it's succesful you should see the menu list.
Please check it and let me know, do you see your data or an error message.

Please let me know.

Hi fiona,
Thanks for your explanations,

I try to do your step using "advanced" menu
When I choose the drive ,
Disk /dev/sdc - 3000 GB / 2794 GiB - CHS 45599 255 63, sector size=4096 - WD My Book 1130, FW:1016

The intel partition table has been detected

Then I choose advanced menu ,
thus I choose "List" we can see the directory same thing when we opened the windows explorer,

A few file have size 0KB (empty file)
Then drive size still read 746GB

I wouldn’t try choose boot menu for recovery boot sector
i choose the other disk I found something strange when I choose drive K:
Drive K: - 3000 GB / 2794 GiB - CHS 45599 255 63, sector size=4096 - WD My Book 1130, FW:1016

Hereis the result:

then I choose intel, and advanced
Image

Drive K: - 3000 GB / 2794 GiB - WD My Book 1130
Partition table type: Intel

Interface Advanced
Geometry from i386 MBR: head=115 sector=52
BAD_RS LBA=1936269394 5382406
check_part_i386 1 type 4F: no test

check_part_i386 3 type 2B: no test
BAD_RS LBA=2844524554 5982593
check_part_i386 4 type 61: no test

2 * Sys=73 119380 132 62 153270 41 37 544437093
1 * Sys=4F 120527 49 53 234813 237 34 1836016416
4 * SpeedStor 177063 118 26 177066 225 63 54974


Then I choose intel , and advanced,

Is this the missing partition ?

Now I try to choose partition 1 and type the 07 (hpfs-ntfs) then list the files but got the bad message so I running "rebuild bs", currently is still process : search mft …. / 1836016416

Is this the right step ?
