Harddisk seems too small

#1 Post by tschickardt »

Hell Testdisk Community!
Hopefully you are not annoyed of my question but I am really desperate.....

I do have an extern harddisk with media files (pictures etc) on it. Yesterday I wanted to copy some pics for my family but windows did not show my harddisk. After hours of searching (I am not an expert) I found Testdisk and started it of course.

Attached you find a picture of the outcome. I tried to follow the instructions given (https://askubuntu.com/questions/400150/ ... arch-optio) but I couldnt choose anything....

Please help me! =(

Thank you very much!

Press "Continue".
Please post the testdisk.log file content. Without it, I don't even know if your partition has been deleted or if the partition table is corrupted.
