WD Passport Ultra 2TB - RAW Drive Problem

#1 Post by pauljwestran » 24 Aug 2015, 16:28

Over the years I have used testdisk and for simple recovery its worked but this time I thought I would join the forum. My WD passport ultra 2TB stopped working. I accidentally unplugged it while my laptop was turning off and I think its scrambled the drive.
The drive shows up under computer management as RAW. I am currently at 34% deep search after changing the type as nothing showed up under NTFS/Intel. It is currently showing the following.....
But to be honest I am lost. At one point it did show 3 partitions, bad relative sector and space conflict but not this time. Will see what the end result is from the deep search. Previously it came up with errors and didnt show anything but I assume it was checking the wrong file system type??? Also not sure about the FAT12.... thought that was floppy drive stuff?
Any help would be great as theres a lot of music and data on the drive I really dont want to lose...

Under disk selection, did you select Disk or Drive?
What's your OS?
Did you use a LiveCD?
Your photo is taken during the scan.
I'd need the results.
On LiveCD you can't create the testdisk.log, because it's read only.

Looks like that your OS is Windows?
I recommend to use TestDisk 7.1WIP 32 bit.
Under disk selection, you shouldn't select Drive but Disk.
Looks like Disk / dev / sd* (a, b, c etc..).
You'll find your testdisk.log within your testdisk folder.
You can open it using Wordpad, select all and copy and paste the content into your next post.
Easily repeat your diagnose running TestDisk / Analyse / Quick Search and if no partition would be found, Deeper Search also.
If partitions are found, please select them one after another and press p to have a try to list your files.
Copy and paste the content of your log. file into your next post.
