testdisk sees partition cant recover it

#1 Post by delukard » 23 Apr 2016, 11:34

Hi
Windows 7x64 user.
today i started my pc and one of my 2tb drives gave me a raw partition
The drive is a samsung 2tb and was formatted as MBR in a single partition (the drive was not new, it was a gift)

I'm using the testdisk software and it shows my partition
my partition is shown as primary bootable (this is not my os drive)
i choose P and i can see my files(i can even copy them)
I press q to return to where the partition is shown, then press enter to continue an choose Write. select yes and Rebbot.

After reboot i still have a raw partition, If i repeat the steps i can still see the partition and files under testdisk.
What could be wrong?
TY

Run TestDisk, Advanced, Boot. If the boot sector is corrupted and the backup ok, choose [BackupBS], confirm, Quit and restart.
Run "cmd" (right click run as administrator) and "chdksk /f d:" (replace d: by the correct drive letter)
