Laptop Drive is corrupted

#1 Post by ragebkd » 14 Dec 2015, 18:18

Hello All,

Looking for some assistance here and would appreciate the help. I have a laptop that seems to have a corrupted drive. Ran a hard drive short self test and it passed but I cannot access the data. First time I plugged it in it asked me to format the drive. I came across TestDisk when doing some searching and I ran it and was able to find all of the partitions and wrote the partition structure on the disk and restarted. Since then I can now see/access all of my recovery partitions but unfortunately my main partition is still not readable. ("The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable") message.


What should I do next? I have also tried hooking it up to an ubuntu machine and it could not see the main partition as well.

Run TestDisk, Advanced, select the damaged partition, List. Can you files your files ?
It it works, you can copy them.
You can also run "cmd" (right click run as administrator) and use "chkdsk /f d:" (replace d: by the correct drive letter).

Hello,

I cannot view the files on that partition but I can see them on others. I also cannot run chkdsk :(
