Space conflict between 2 partitions--SSD

#1 Post by Darnok » 16 Jun 2012, 11:14

Hi,

Hope you can help with disk read error on Dell 6320.

Testdisk analyse result:

Start End
1 P Dell Utility 0 1 1 4 254 63 80262
2 * HPFS-NTFS 0 1 1 1564 254 63 250051662

Space conflict between the following 2 partitions.
Start End
1 P Dell Utility 0 1 1 4 254 63 80262
2 * HPFS-NTFS 0 1 1 1564 254 63 250051662

What can I do to fix & still recover important data?

Hope you can help
Regards Darnok

If you have a 2.5 inch disk, please repeat your diagnose using a disk geometry of 240 heads.
You can change that value in testdisk menu geometry for your diagnose.
If your partitions are correct and don't overlap, you can write them to your partition table.

Hi,

Still in trouble...
After changing heads to 240:

Warning : Bad ending head (CHS & LBA don't match)
Space conflict between the following two partitions

1 P Dell Utility 0 1 1 5 74 63 80262
2 * HPFS - NTFS 0 1 1 16537 194 63 250051662

Your NTFS partition starts at the beginning of your disk and overlaps the complete Dell Utility partition.
The question is why?
Did you create another partition?
Did you run Quick and Deeper Search to have a try to find more partitions?
When more partitions are found, you can check them and press p to have a try to list your files.
If your files are listed, this partitipon might be recoverable.
Hope you can help with disk read error on Dell 6320.
Could you explain it a little bit more?
