4tb Hard drive

#1 Post by Grias » 27 May 2016, 17:01

Greetings!

Why is "Boot" missing in the advance part?
Why is does it show 1801 gb but the hard drive is 4tb?
What should I do?

This was a GPT and only had 1 partition

BTW, this is a WD My Book 4tb that is converted to internal hard drive. Learned it from youtube by removing a component that exposes the power and the SATA cable port. I formatted it as NTFS and GPT (I don't know what it is but I just know that I used GPT to use the whole drive). Worked almost 6 months, but suddenly became RAW.

I'm sorry, I do not know what to do.
Please Help T.T Thanks in Advance!

Can you try using TestDisk 7.1-WIP ?
What size reports Windows Disk Manager ?
If both reports 1.8TB, please boot from a Linux LiveCD/DVD/USB and run TestDisk to check the disk capacity.

Hi!

The Disk manager shows the correct size but the TestDisk still shows 1.8 TB.

What should I do?

This is the testdisk.log that was created when I was doing a quick search
