Test Disk reports error

#1 Post by bblyth » 05 Jun 2016, 02:20

Hello,, I am new to the entire process. I have a Seagate Freeagent Go 640gb external drive that Windows recognizes, and File explorer will let me access certain directories. Others, the drive times out and I have to unplug/plug back in.

On running the TestDisk, I noted the error:

Warning: Bad ending cylinder (CHS and LBA on't match)

What is the meaning of this and what can be done to fix?

see attached jpg screen shot.

thank you!!

The disk is listed as 4GB, not 640GB. The listed partition is also only 4GB.
Are you sure it's the correct disk ?
