Data recovery on re-partitioned drive.

#1 Post by Bridden » 03 Oct 2016, 15:27

Hello all,

So I need some advice, and I'll start with why I need it.
A couple of days ago I was using Acronis to clone a hard drive over to a new SSD. (done it many times with other software) I made the HUGE mistake of clicking on the destination as the source. So, this took a empty, blank partition and wrote over the hard drive I was supposed to be cloning FROM. I knew not to over write or anything, and I did make a bit-by-bit back-up before trying to recover.

Now, I have already ran a 'deeper' scan of the hard drive, which took many hours. I would attach the entire log, but it is 1500 lines. This is the very end of the log.

Let me know if you would like me to include any other.

There are a lot of partitions found, and originally, the drive originally had 3 NTFS partitions I believe. The majority of the NTFS partitions that were found were listed returned "Can't open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged." when trying to browse.

It looks like you have search partitions inside a partition.
When using TestDisk, you should select the PhysicalDrive and not a drive letter.
Choose EFI GPT or PC Intel for the partition table type.

That is exactly what I did. I did figure this out after posting the thread. It did seem to find the partition that I was missing.
Thanks for advising. I'll let you guys know how the recovery goes.
