2TB Internal Drive Showing Empty

#1 Post by JackBenson » 18 Aug 2017, 17:39

Hello,

I'm running a Slackware Linux system.

I turned my computer on today, and my internal 2TB drive is showing no data.

When I run testdisk /dev/sda and proceed through the steps, the 1st partition shows twice, along with partition 2 which contains my data. When I run a deeper search, I get errors regarding Bad jump in FAT partition and Bad number of sectors per cluster.

Am I looking at real data loss, or does this just sound like a partition table error?

Thank you in advance.

Without the testdisk.log file, it's difficult to understand the problem...
The partition table may be ok but the filesystem of the first partition is corrupted.

Read https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf and post more information relevant to your problem if you need help
