TestDisk "Write Error"

#1 Post by ccotton » 23 Oct 2017, 16:46

Recently I had a 1.5TB USB 3.0 disk "go bad." It had become a "RAW" disk. I tried TestDisk and it successfully wrote the partition and, after the reboot and chkdsk run, my disk and all of my data was recovered. Great experience!

Now, I've had the same thing happen to another disk, also a 1.5TB USB 3.0 external disk. This time, however, the Write option fails with "Write Error"

Here is the log file:

Can you try TestDisk, Advanced, Boot, RebuildBS, List ? If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer.
Please post the new log file if it doesn't work.
