Corrupted HGST HTS545050A7E380 ATA Device

#1 Post by unsecured » 14 Feb 2017, 20:29

Hi.
I was trying to follow manual but It's out of my depth :)
If you could help me I'd love that.
Firstly I have experienced fatal error in Win7, I couldn't repair it because my whole HD was encrypted. Decryption took about 2 months because disc was in bad state. Lucky me I was able to decrypt.

Manuals didn't help me as this's out of my depth.
On data recovery my PC where laptop drive is attached froze after 2-3 days and I don't know where it happened. I can see I was able to recover some ie pictures, but whole process of recovery was showing to last up to 488h. I thought that instead of repeating whole process I either could recover HD to the state of opening in Windows or just recover Desktop content from system partition.

HD from CrystalDiskInfo

What can I do?

Try TestDisk, Advanced, Undelete and if it doesn't work, try PhotoRec on the partition (choose [Whole] instead of [Free])
Good luck

Thank you for response.

Photorec is running since sending first post as I wasn't sure when and if I receive any answer. For now i has 300h to finish recovery. It might finish sooner but also later -depending on HDD... But then it is only the beginning. There is few GB of photos that needs sorting by date and place and I will not recover picture locations [included in folder name].

If there is anything I can do to improve recovery....
I'll be obliged.

Thanks again

Thank you. I got 99% of files I can remember - thanks to photorec.


Now I will experiment with HDD
