None Partition type detected by TestDisk

#1 Post by Effndhey » 01 Mar 2016, 16:32

Yesterday my 2TB Transcend external hard drive turn to RAW format after i tried to copy movies from my office.
After using TestDisk. The result shows my type of partition is NONE PARTITION TYPE. From there i can view my files inside the hard drive. Since i cannot WRITE all the file coz its NONE PARTITION TYPE, what i need to do to recover all my files? I used that EXT HDD for storing media and etc only. It is not for system purposes.
Someone please guide me? Im starting to feel disapointed now.
All your kind cooperation are highly appreciated.
Help me..

Run "cmd" (right run as administrator) and "chkdsk /f d:" (replace d: by the correct drive letter)
If it doesn't work, please post the testdisk.log file content.

My bootsector is OK
Backup bootsector is BAD.
Sectors are not identical.

I tried to rebuildBS. Still the same. Try to Write. And still the same. Tried chkdsk under admin rights, it just stuck for a lifetime with black screen of the command prompt with '-' blinking.
I can see my files under List. But not all the files were shown.
Is there any other method i can use?

Your partition is probably larger than the disk, it's why TestDisk failed to read the backup boot sector and it can also explain why chdsk doesn't work.

You can try to reduce the partition size.
It's recommended to copy the files you can access using TestDisk first.
Run TestDisk, Analyse, Quick Search, using the arrow keys, set the partition found by TestDisk as D(eleted)
use 'a' to manually add the partition HPFS-NTFS 0 32 33 243200 255 63
Set this partition as *(bootable).
On next screen, choose Write, confirm.
Go in Advanced, Boot, RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write and confirm.
Quit and reboot your computer
Try again "cmd" as administrator and "chkdsk /f d:"
