Rebuild BS Time??

#1 Post by lordclarkson » 08 Jul 2017, 08:18

How long does it usually take for Test disk to rebuild the boot sector? Both my main and back up were bad, and it's been sitting like this for 5 hours now

I think it will not work: you have forced the partition table type to None and forced the filesystem to NTFS.
You probably had a PC Intel or an EFI GPT partition table type with a single NTFS partition.

Selecting None was the only way I could get it to recognise a partition. Neither Quick Scan or Deeper Scan were picking anything up. I also tried GParted, but it wouldn't recognise my drive, and W10 Disk Management said that it needed initialised, then threw a cyclic redundancy error when I tried initialising it.

To recover your partition, choose EFI GPT or PC Intel, Analyse, Quick Search and Deeper Search if necessary.
If it doesn't find your partition, use PhotoRec.
