Recovery problems

#1 Post by Zaim »

Hello everybody,

So my laptop kissed the ground and the HDD got damaged :lol: . It's a WD5000LPVX from WD blue. When I powered up the PC it didn't recognize it anymore, so I opened it and connected through USB on another computer. It shows up like this.


I tried Recuva and GetDataBack but they weren't able to read it. So I tried TestDisk, It was able to display the following :

then :

But at the end it doesn't show anything.

I also tried PhotoRec, it showed the partitions, but wasn't able to recover anything.

So any ideas how to recover the partitions, or at least recover some files ?
