WD My Passport turned RAW from NTFS

#1 Post by hteeniv » 30 Sep 2017, 21:57

Hi All,
I have a WD My Passport 1 TB which is now around 4 years old with lots of valuable data in it personal and work related docs, images, videos, executables,etc. These are very valuable to me. Couple of days back I was accessing some files on the disk when the laptop seemed to get slow, I tried ejecting the hdd by safely remove option. But when it did not seem to work I forcefully pulled it out. But when I plugged it back to access the folders its now not getting detected in the file explorer. I see it as Local Disk K while it used to be displayed with its actual name My Passport. Disk Management does not seem to respond when I access it with hdd connected while the Device Manager rightly shows it as WD My Passport. Tried accessing it using Ubuntu Live USB and its the same not accessible.<br/>

Tried TestDisk as well but it seems to take ages so I had to cancel it. The quick search ran for almost 3 hours but still at 0%. And was from away ever from reaching to even 1%.

Please help. Would be grateful for your responses. Have attached the logs that may help. :roll:

There are bad sectors (see the CRC error messages).
You should clone your disk to a new empty one using ddrescue as described in https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf
Read the chapters "DDRescue: data recovery from damaged disk" and "Creating a live USB".
Once it's done, remove the original disk, run TestDisk, select the new disk, Advanced, Boot, RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer.

Hi cgrenier,

Does that mean my existing harddisk is damaged and is of no use anymore (cannot be repaired by any means) ?

The disk can not be repaired and should not be used anymore.

Is it safe to continue the restore process on the new disk with this result.

The destination is smaller than the source, it's not ideal.
Remove the original disk and try TestDisk on the clone, Advanced, List and/or "cmd" (right click run as administrator) and "chkdsk /f k:".
What are the results ?

Now my new harddisk (the one bought couple of days back) is behaving exactly the same way as my old one i.e cannot see it in the file explorer. Also attached below the testdisk/chkdsk logs on it :
