Recovering External HD

#1 Post by juicejosh »

Hi all, i have used the step by step guide for TestDisk to try and recover my external HD.
I've got to the quick search point and its not very quick, in about 10hours its only reached 2% and by my calculations it will take 3 weeks to complete.
Surely it shouldn't take anywhere near that? its only a 250GB HD

Not sure if there is a quicker/different way or not?
