Seagate Ext Hard Drive asking to be formated

#1 Post by newnew » 26 Oct 2016, 08:12

Hello All
After reading your forum I decided to run TestDisk on my External Hard Drive 2000GB
after completing Quick search - no partition was detected
after completing Deep Search it gave me this saying that there is partitions conflict between 3 and 2, 2 and 1, 1 and 4
i did a screen shot but can not attache it, i tried as pdf and word file but it does not allow me
I am not computer engineer and I am struggling a lot with it
can you guys help please?

Kind regards
B

You can link to jpg or png images or copy/paste the testdisk.log file.

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

Thank you Mr Grenier

Thank you for your response. I dont even know how to link to jpg.
When I was doing TestDisk, a lot of information have been displaying in this communication black window and I have seen that there was many times written delete or deleting, which scared me so I have stopped the test being afraid that I am deleting the data.
Should I do it again and then try (somehow) to copy/paste the testdisk.log file (whatever and wherever it is) please?
Regards
B
