External Hdd Needs A New Partition, Please Help!

#1 Post by mecafe1 » 27 May 2017, 07:50


I have an external 1Tb Hdd with data and now the partition table is corrupted. Someone was nice enough to tell me to use TestDisk to recovery the partition table. I do have a question pertaining to partition table type to select. Step by step guide suggest that Testdisk auto detects the partition table type. However there is a warning message "None" is rare for a disk media with a single partition. Can someone help me out here and tell me which option to select from? Should i select [Intel] or the default [None] here or was it some other option here? I am using this external Hdd to connect to a Win10 laptop.

Please help me.

Thanks alot!!!

Select the PhysicalDrive instead of F:
Go in the Advanced menu, choose Boot, RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer.
