Kingston SE9 G2 64GB USB 3.0 Partition Recovery issue

#1 Post by karko » 28 Sep 2017, 13:15

Hi,

I am new to this forum so welcome everyone.

My pendrive has become unavailable for unknown reason. I've followed this instruction as I had just the same symptomes.
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Step_By_Step

During the process I have successfuly recovered part of the partition. The pendrive is now accesible but I can see only few files.

In windows explorer it displays the following:
explorer.jpg
explorer.jpg (13.81 KiB) Viewed 217 times
It seems that files are there are only 13.9GB is free!

Yet when I access it I see only few files.

This is what testdisk analysis is returning:
ts1.jpg
ts1.jpg (92.16 KiB) Viewed 217 times
And results of quick search:
qs1.jpg
qs1.jpg (118.8 KiB) Viewed 217 times
Can you please advise what I can do?

Thank you!

Run "cmd" (right click "run as administator") and "chkdsk /f e:".
Windows explorer may hide some files/directory by default: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel ... dden-files

Thank you for quick reply.

Unfortunately I've tried running chkdsk before and I am getting this:

Code: Select all

Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected.
I am not able to take down the "Current Read-Only state: Yes" flag. I have tried diskpart, rmPrepUSB, and registry change. The flag is still there:

Also I did apply change to hidden files visibiity with no luck. I have even applied it for operating system files but there is nothing more appearing.

By the way - when I run files recovery all the other files are recovering! So it seems that everything is there I just cant access it. I would prefer to access those files instead of running restore operation as many system files (for example from some apps) won't get restored. Hence I am doing what I can to fix the structure without data restoration.

Try to remove the readonly flag:
<pre>
att vol clear readonly
</pre>

To access the files you have copied, you may to take ownership of the files (ie. https://winaero.com/blog/how-to-take-ow ... indows-10/ )
