WD My Book Duo 4TB Recovery

#1 Post by technik » 17 Feb 2016, 07:05

Hi,
My 4TB WD My Book Duo started showing up as RAW and it said invalid filesystem or something in Windows 10. I believe it was formatted NTFS with one large partition. I ran the default option on TestDisk 7.0 to deep search the partitions and it says the following after several days of running:

I ran the WD drive utilities and it said that RAID was good and Quick Drive Test also passed.

I tried to take one drive out and try with another sata connection and it never mounted, when I put it back in it said the RAID could only be rebuilt by erasing. Now I just have one drive in and RAID 1 says degraded. I think either drive will function the same.

                               Quit this section
I tried to list files in each partition and they seem to be from disc images that it found.

Where do I go from here?

Is there a way to repair the file system?

Log attached too.

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Run TestDisk, select the disk, Advanced, select the partition, Boot, RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer.
If it doesn't work, please post the testdisk.log file content.

Thanks for the quick response.
I did as instructed but could not see the files at the List step. I've attached the testdisk.log
Let me know what to try next.
Thanks

Boot sector
Status: OK

Backup boot sector
Status: OK

Sectors are identical.

A valid NTFS Boot sector must be present in order to access

TestDisk exited normally.
