Lost 1TB partition - too big for recovery

#1 Post by marko87s » 30 Nov 2016, 00:13

I would first like to thank everyone working on the tool and this forum to take their time helping people who lost their data. This really can be a traumatic experience...

I'm kindly asking for help with an issue I'm facing.
I have a 1TB USB WD disk, which suddenly lost its partition (windows would report the disk requires formatting). I had ran chkdsk on the disk while it was still on USB and had a letter assigned. It did not help. As I've wanted to exclude any issues with the chassis, I've took the disk out and connected it directly to the computer. The issue remained, but this time the disk lost the assigned letter, which hinted to me partition was probably missing. I've then ran scan with testdisk. Results below.

Quick search:

Continuing (the only available option) does not offer anything to recover the partition:

Deep search:

As seen from the pictures I've been unable to recover the partition, even though it was found, as testdisk says it's too big for the hard drive.

What could I do next? I'm also providing the logs below. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Re: Lost 1TB partition - too big for recovery

#2 Post by cgrenier » 01 Dec 2016, 06:47

There are a lot of bad sectors (see the crc errors in the log file).
You need to clone the disk to a new empty disk using gnu ddrescue
See https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf "Creating a live USB" and "DDRescue: data recovery from damaged disk"

Re: Lost 1TB partition - too big for recovery

Hello, thank you very much for the response. I have bought a new disk and performed as suggested. DDRescue output said the following after finishing:

Code: Select all

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo ddrescue --force /dev/sdb /dev/sdc1 sdb.log
GNU ddrescue 1.19
Press Ctrl-C to interrupt
rescued:	1000 GB,		errsize:   1319 kB,		current rate:        0 B/s
ipos:		499759 MB,	errors:     186,			average rate:   20803 kB/s
opos:	499759 MB,	run time:   13.35 h,		successful read:    1.71 m ago
Finished 
I have ran ddrescue another time with -r5 option, which ended up in errsize 1125 kB. It took quite a long time to salvage these few kBs. I am now letting ddrescue run with -r10 option on the same log file and will see how it goes but it seems that I have recovered what I could.

If I run testdisk on the new disk now (without going into analysis), and if I select Advanced (utils), I can actually see the corrupted partition. If I try to list the files, I get:

Code: Select all

1 P HPFS - NTFS              0  32 33 243201  13 12 3907022848

Can't open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged.
If I check boot section in the tools I can see:

Code: Select all

Disk /dev/sdc - 2000 GB / 1863 GiB - CHS 243201 255 63
     Partition                  Start        End    Size in sectors
 1 P HPFS - NTFS              0  32 33 243201  13 12 3907022848

Boot sector
Status: Bad

Backup boot sector
Status: OK

Sectors are not identical.

A valid NTFS Boot sector must be present in order to access
any data; even if the partition is not bootable.
Should I use 'Copy backup boot sector over boot sector' option?

Thank you!

Yes, restore the boot sector.
Using TestDisk 7.1-WIP (not 7.0), use Advanced, Boot, Repair MFT if after a reboot your computer still failed to list your files.

No luck even with repair MFT. Photorec?

Re: Lost 1TB partition - too big for recovery

#6 Post by marko87s » 09 Dec 2016, 19:14

Just started qphotorec, its at 22% and only found 5 files (all corupt, few kb in size and weird extensions). I'll see it down the line but it doesn't look good.
Oh well. Any other options?
