I think I screwed up

#1 Post by scoticus » 17 Feb 2018, 22:08

Brief history, I had two partitions on a hard drive (created by the manufacturer). It was getting to the point where having two was pointless, so I decided to combine them with Easeus partition master. While running on the combine step of the recovery (which I was removing because the rec partition was for a different os altogether) the power shut off. When I started back up, received the missing operating system message. Got testdisk and ran it. At first I don't think it saw the missing partition, so ran it in deeper. After running deeper, it came up with a bunch of partitions. I chose the one that looked most correct, and went to write. That didn't work. When I checked with another partitioning application, it said that there was partitions overlapping.

At this point I decided to cut my losses and recover what I could. I bought getdataback, and ran it and recovered some of the files, but of course none of the ones that I actually really need, they're just not showing up at all. So now I'm going back and trying testdisk again to see if I can fix the issue. This is where I realized I'm probably an idiot and should ask for help. So I guess what I'm asking is, based on what I've done so far, where should I go next? I'm currently running another test disk analyze on deep mode to try again, so will post the screenshot here. Would love to be able to post you the log of the original, but only had the one thumb drive and already copied over it. I've slept about 2 hours in the last 2 days, so really hoping to get something out of this. Please help me!

When testdisk lists the partition, you can try 'p' to list the files.
This may help to recover the correct partitions.
If nothing works, you can always use latest PhotoRec 7.1-WIP on whole disk. If you recover few valid files, as you have move/merge/... the partitions, you may have to enable the expert mode in options and choose a blocksize of 512 bytes, use the default options otherwise.

Hey, thanks so much for getting back to me. I'm currently running photorec right now. It's been running for 20 hours and found around 123k text files (I'm looking for arduino INO files, specifically one I worked about 2 months on). I tried running testdisk again on deep scan and like before, I couldn't list files on the partition I've been having trouble with, I hit p and it just says there's an error, and I think to run checkdisk, but not sure. The following is an error that came up after the scan:

ss2.png (35.17 KiB) Viewed 263 times
Also here is the partition list and the options I chose:
ss2.png
ss2.png (35.17 KiB) Viewed 263 times
Just wondering if that's in line with how I should have done it? I'm obviously over getting back things the way they were, but desperately need a few of the files. (My backup HDD failed horribly by getting stolen a few weeks ago, and wonderfully it's replacement arrives wednesday, so these are the only copies I have left). I'll let you know how I make out with the photorec. Again, thank you for your advice.

Also, one last thing, I did run the rebuildBS option, and it made it about 1/3rd of the way through before kicking me out and just shutting down, I tried again with the same issue.

I've also attached the log file, but not sure if I did it right. Again, I don't have the original file from the first time I ran testdisk, as it was on a usb stick in the victim computer, but hopefully says something?

So I've run photorec a couple times with no love. I watched it this time for the 6 or so hours, and it seems like it finds tons up to a certain point, and then nothing. I'll try it with the advanced setting you suggested, but is there anything else at all you can recommend?

Ok, ran it with the setting you suggested and ended up with about 1,000,000 text files. Searched in the contents and still can't find any of the program that I'm looking for. It should just be stored as plain text, so wouldn't think it'd be this difficult to find. Any more ideas whatsoever?
