Using testdisk to recover data but many files cannot open

#1 Post by liyihua » 28 Sep 2016, 06:20

Hi,

I have an external disk and it seems to have some bad sector. I try to use TestDisk to recover my data. But many files are broken and cannot be opened.
In addition, when I recover my data, the TestDisk and PhotoRec always stop working and block there.
Could you help with this two issue? I use TestDisk 7.1.

Thank you& Best regards,
Lee

You should try to clone the disk first
