Recovering RAW disk via TestDisk

#1 Post by eric78 » 02 Nov 2015, 05:03

Hi there
Not sure,but my 3TB Toshiba become RAW,Windows wants to run on this chkdsk which I don't want to do as I've lost in past several files with chkdsk which I've never recovered

Here is attached output from Testdisk 7.0,I'm using 32bit on 64bit Windows 7
What is best way to convert the RAW to NTFS as I don't want to loose files and don't want to format HDD etc

Please if you could let me know what is best way to convert to NTFS I would be very appreciated

Thanks

Run TestDisk, Advanced, select the partition, Boot, RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit, restart your computer. If needed, run "cmd" (right click "run as administrator") and "chkdsk /f d:" (replace d: by the correct drive letter)

Yes I've run TestDisk via Advanced,but didn't manage to RebuildBS as I've got BSOD :oops:
HDD is 3TB and took quite while to analyze HDD

Thanks
