Can see files thru testdisk, cannot see drive in Windows

#1 Post by secret2 » 22 Sep 2015, 16:00

Hi, I am a newbie in using testdisk and I would really appreciate any help with my current situation, thanks a lot in advance!

I have been trying all I could to save my harddisk with important files but I'm currently stuck, any help would be appreciated.

Spec:

Win 7 Ultimate SP1

External harddisk (the one I'm trying to save) 160GB SATA Seagate

Symptom and what I've tried so far:

1. Plug in the harddisk with USB external stand. Nothing shows up in 'Computer'.

2. In Computer Management -> Disk Management I can see the disk; however it says 'Dynamic' and 'Invalid'

3. I downloaded testdisk-7.0 and analyze my harddisk. I can see the three partitions(http://imgur.com/x8RyjpC), and I can even see the files (I didn't verify if I can see all of them) by pressing p. But when I tried to write the table it gives this(http://imgur.com/suHCMBA)

4. I've also tried to edit the Hex following [here](http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/ ... ss.191006/) (although the location in question I have has 0F instead of 42), but it doesn't change a thing.

What is the best route to proceed at this point? I would really appreciate your help and suggestions, thanks again :)

Update: Using EaseUS Partition Master, I am able to recover one partition out of 3 in the said harddisk (unfortunately it is not the one I want to access for my data...) The remaining 2 partitions is shown in Disk Management as a single blob of Unallocated space and EaseUS doesn't help either...

Can you post the testdisk.log file generated using TestDisk 7.1-WIP ?
