One partition containing 3 valid partitions

#1 Post by wramp » 09 Mar 2016, 16:04

Hello,

I have WD my passport 1TB drive which has been broken and its content cant be accessed. After runing 'analyze' several issues were found, here is log:

Code: Select all


Disk \\.\PhysicalDrive2 - 1000 GB / 931 GiB
Partition table type: Intel

Only one partition must be bootable

Next step was 'quick search', the result (see attachment) shows 3 partitions which seems to be correct (position 1, 3 and 4). And there is extra partition at position 2 which starts at the start of first partition and ends at the end of last partition.

I have read few tutorials of testdisk but I am not sure what should I do with these results. Any advice is welcome.

You have to select which partitions to recover:
- partitions 1,3 and 4
- only partition 2
To know which ones are ok, for each partition, press 'p' to list the files.
Use the arrow keys to set the partitions to recover as P(rimary).. On next screen, choose Write, confirm, Quit.

It works again! Reading data and copying is extremely slow but works. Firstly I will copy all the most important data and then try to find out how to make it work like before.

Thank you very much for your help. I have been warned to always make backup.
