When I tried to view files on partition 5 (the main data partition) I would get an error about the filesystem being damaged or something to that effect, however I could view the files on the other small partitions. At some point I must have done a "Write" on this partition table and since then I cannot get teskdisk to read any partitions at all. I tried using PhotoRecovery since the only thing I care about recovering is photos, but after scanning for 77 hours nothing was found and it was telling me it had almost 1500 hours remaining.
Code: Select all
Current partition structure: 1 P EFI System 2048 1026047 1024000 [EFI system partition] 2 P Unknown 1026048 1107967 81920 [Basic data partition] No FAT, NTFS, ext2, JFS, Reiser, cramfs or XFS marker 3 P MS Reserved 1107968 1370111 262144 [Microsoft reserved partition] 3 P MS Reserved 1107968 1370111 262144 [Microsoft reserved partition] 4 P Unknown 1370112 2394111 1024000 [Basic data partition] 5 P MS Data 2394112 959852543 957458432 [Basic data partition] 6 P Unknown 959852544 960774143 921600 7 P Unknown 960774144 976771119 15996976 [Microsoft recovery partition]
I have a feeling this was something that could have been fixed relatively easy but now I've screwed myself over. Can anyone guide me in the right direction? Unfortunately I didn't have the foresight to save all my logs, but I do have a logfile from one of the times I ran it before writing over the partition table that may provide some insight. One thing I do remember is that I was getting the "The harddisk seems too small!" message that also showed a partition that couldn't be recovered that I believe was way outside the bounds of the disk size. From what I remember it was around the same size as partition 5, but I can't remember exact numbers.
Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
