Hard drive not visible in explorer

#1 Post by Mal1986 » 05 Jun 2012, 16:54

I recently dug out an old internal hard drive and connected it up using an external enclosure, it shows up in explorer in raw file format so ran testdisk on it to try and recover the data. Unfortunatly after running a scan test disk returns "No partition found or selected for recovery" is there any way I can recover the old data from the disk or is in knackered?

We need more precision about what you have done. Did you launch testdisk on the whole disk (physicaldisk) or only on the raw partition ?
