Interpreting testdisk results

#1 Post by maloto2003 » 17 Feb 2017, 03:21

Hello
I do not speak English so maybe some sentences do not clearly indicate what I want to explain .... sorry
I used testdisk, following the instructions provided, and I have obtained information that I do not know how to interpret since my disk has an NTFS partition and the tool tells me:
check_FAT: can't read FAT boot sector
Invalid FAT boot sector"
0 D FAT12 234452 148 55 397466 111 48 2618817573
FAT12 234452 148 55 397466 111 48 2618817573

This is repeated three times
When finished indicates

"The harddisk() seems too small!
TestDisk.JPG
TestDisk.JPG (41.21 KiB) Viewed 244 times
I must clarify that testdisk detects as none the partition table

The disk belongs to a Dell notebook that has a factory recovery partition and the rest is the working partition (c:)
I do not know what to do and I urgently need many of the files.

Please help
Thank you

You have searched partitions inside a partition, it's useless.
What is the problem you are trying to solve ?
