Trying to recover some files from Laptop drive

#1 Post by Harry27L » 31 Jan 2016, 02:35

My sons laptop stopped working and there was a couple of files on that he needs.

I hooked drive to my PC and it would not show up in My Computer. When you accessed Drive Management it showed up but as "Disk 3 Unknown of 465.76 GB" and "Not Initalized". In detail for that drive it says "465.76 GB Unallocated". It also displays a message when I fist enter Disk Management that says "You must Initialize a disk before Logical Disk Manager can access it". It offers initialization in either MBR or GPT partition style. The harddrive is stamped as a HGST of 500 GB capacity.
I tried Linux and similar issues. On front screen it shows my 2 drives and Seagate external drive and no Hitachi drive. When I select Computer at top of main screenit shows the Hitachi Drive. When I select it says "Unable to mount location - Can't mount file".
I then ran TestDisk (I really know nothing about it) and got disk listed but got this back "Warning: Bad ending head (CHS and LBA don't match)
No partition is bootable"
I then ran search and got:
HPFS - NTFS 4 203 8 19 35 16 230400
NTFS, blocksize=4096, 943 MB / 900 MiB
HPFS - NTFS 21 45 25 3054 14 32 48723200
NTFS, blocksize=4096, 199 GB / 185 GiB
HPFS - NTFS 3054 14 33 3061 62 9 115456
NTFS, blocksize=4096, 472 MB / 451 MiB
HPFS - NTFS 3061 62 10 7273 165 60 67672320
NTFS, blocksize=4096, 277 GB / 258 GiB
HPFS - NTFS 7273 165 61 7600 41 57 5245440
NTFS, blocksize=4096, 21 GB / 20 GiB

I have attached 2 copies of screen in hope someone may be able to further. I also have a log file
