Invalid FAT Boot Sector

#1 Post by serbenzi » 31 Aug 2015, 14:06

Hi,
I have a inaccessible external WD MY Passport 1TB drive.
I tried running TestDrive Analyse ==> Quick Search but I have been unable to complete a full run.
I receive a message of 2 invalid boot sectors FAT12 and FAT16 See attached file.
The Analyse job is not performing. It has reached 72% in 24 hours.

Can you please advise how to proceed.

Thanks for your kind support.
Benzi
