Partition not write after reboot (screenshot+log included)

#1 Post by Vilens40 » 06 Apr 2016, 14:58

Hi All,

I've been trying to get testdisk to write my partition for weeks now. I had an external USB hard drive that had a power supply give out. I took it out of the casing and connected it via SATA cable.

It immediately prompted me to reformat. After some research I came across Testdisk. I have analysed the disk many times and it can read the old partition and I can also copy most files from it. Unfortunately it's about 1.5TB and I'd much prefer to re-write the partition to be like it was. I have not gotten any notifications that the hard drive is bad.

It also worth noting I have no Anti Virus running and I am running TestDisk as an administrator (I'm an IT engineer).

After the multiple hour analyzation takes place I select write and am prompted to reboot. But nothing happens. It did write a small partition after the first time (See screenshot below). But the drive is still prompting for reformatting. What else should I be doing?

write!

write_mbr_i386: starting...
write_all_log_i386: starting...
No extended partition
You will have to reboot for the change to take effect.

TestDisk exited normally.
Any advice would be tremendously appreciated. Thank you all.

Run TestDisk, select the disk, the partition table type, Advanced, select the partition, Boot, RebuildBS, List.
If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart the computer.
If RebuildBS failed, you can always try PhotoRec but it will not recover the original filenames.

I'd also like to display this screenshot. It copies the first btach of files no problem but then hits to about 600+ then stays there With no progress.

Should I just leave it?

I'm truly desperate for assistance and will donate to the application if I can regain a majority of this folder.

Do you have the same problem when using TestDisk 7.1-WIP ?

I'm suing Testdisk_WIN 7.0.

I saw the 7.1 is in Beta. Should I try that?

When I use 7.1 every single file fails.

Also I get no option for rebuildBS only Org. BS.
