damaged filesystem (NTFS turned into RAW), error: "the harddisk seems to small"

#1 Post by jendo » 23 Jan 2017, 09:10

Hello,
I‘ve got a problem with my external harddrive. The file system was converted into RAW (from NTFS) and the disk is not accessable anymore – neither from Windows 8.1 nor from Ubuntu 16.04.

It seems to have 2 partitions, but the data should be stored in the second (see image, it‘s the „Datenträger 2“).

I was able to rescue a lot of files with Photorec :-). But .odt-files seem to be damaged.
I want to give it another try and I was wondering, if I could recover the structure of my data with Teskdisk.

When I start Teskdisk analysis, „no partition is bootable“ is the result.

The quick search is showing 2 partitions, but I was not able to view (and copy) files from the NTFS-partition (message: „file systems seems to be damaged“)
So I continued with a Deeper Search and finally got the message „The harddisk seems too small! Check the harddisk size….“

I got stuck here. Do you have any advice for me? Would be great!
I should add, that after the Deeper Search I could view the files of the NTFS partition in testdisk … a very looooong list. I could copy them to another harddrive. But how shall I continue?

I attach the teskdisk logfile. (I shorted it, since it‘s got thousends of entries saying „Can‘t open Bitmap“ and the list of data that could possibly be recovered)
Thanks a lot!
