WD Elements 500 Gt USB 3.0 external

#1 Post by RE91 » 07 Aug 2016, 16:53

Hello!

I am trying to recover my EHDD (WD Elements 500 Gt USB 3.0 external) but i don't really know what i am doing as step-by-step is not similar to my case..

What i have done is:
1. Choose SDD that is my EHDD
2. Analyze
3. Quick search
4. Deeper search.
...

What should i do now, i wouldn't want to lose my data, and i have no idea how this has happened.

Here are my specs just to give you all information that might be needed:

I assume
- an NTFS partition was present
- your disk has been connected to a Linux device (ie. video recorder) and reformated.

Run TestDisk, Advanced, RebuildBS, List. If you see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer.
