I have a problem with recovery of my data from 500GB external 2.5'' hard drive.
I have used that drive for a long time, it was divided on two partition: one small FAT (to run in devices that doesn't support NTFS) and the rest of space was on NTFS partition.
After i have bought new laptop i decided to create recovery disk on this FAT partition (YES THAT WAS MY MISTAKE!!).
I have errased all data and even set name to that partition and started recovery disk creation. I was hoping that main NTFS partition will be left ok but no, i ended with one partition with recovery files...
I have launched TestDisk to check if i can recover my partition. Quick search didn't found it so i have launched deeper search.
And success - my partition was found. But unfortunatelly when i try to see files i get message that "Can't open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged.".
This is the output after deeper search:
Code: Select all

[DELL_RCVRY] is my old FAT partition that i wanted to use as recovery (name i have assigned)
NTFS partition is probably what left from my main partition with important data.
Is there a chance to recover this partition ? In fact less than 10% of data on this partition are realy important for me (fotos).
If partition recovery is not possible what options do i have? File recovery?
I have included only part of TestDisk log. If there are any important informations that i have missed please let me know and i will post them ASAP.
Thanks in advance.
