Can see files from one partition but not the other

#1 Post by zachiepie » 30 Mar 2016, 08:53

Hello,

I have a 1tb WD Blue that was split into two partitions (Win 7 on one, data on the other) both in NTFS. The drive died and I'm trying to recover what I can. Using TestDisk, I was able to view and copy some files from the smaller OS partition but not the data partition. I get the error "Filesystem seems damaged". I also can't repair the MFT or NTFS BS, those details are in the log.
Other info: I'm using Pmagic 32 with default, RAM-loaded settings. I haven't have better luck running in LIVE mode. The HDD is in the laptop I'm using, attached via SATA.
If I can easily files from one, shouldn't I be able to get files from the other?

Hint for advanced users. dmsetup may be used if you prefer to avoid to rewrite the partition table for the moment:
echo "0 204800 linear /dev/sda 2048" | dmsetup create test0
echo "0 204593152 linear /dev/sda 206848" | dmsetup create test1
echo "0 1748721664 linear /dev/sda 204800000" | dmsetup create test2

Hey there zachiepie,

I'm sorry for the situation.
What was the reason for the drive failure? Do you have a S.M.A.R.T. status with the raw values that you can post?

Have in mind that if it was something physical like a scratch on the platter or a bad head/actuator/spindle any further attempt to get your data back may further damage the drive beyond any chance of getting your data back. If the data is truly valuable your best bet would be to contact a data recovery company, but have in mind that their services can be quite costly.

Captain_WD.
