RAW Recovery

#1 Post by cheezels » 10 Apr 2018, 06:30

Hi,

I'm new to the forum. so G'day from Australia.

I have a 32 GB Leef iBridge USB stick which has suddenly asked for formatting.

I have since discovered that it is RAW. (Sorry, if my use of the words are wrong).

I've tried many many different free downloads to try to recover my data and finally I've been led here.

Unfortunately, I'm not really familiar with how to use Test Disk, so was wondering if someone may help, please?

During one scan Test Disk did advise 'partition sector doesn't have the endmark 0xAA55' but I don't really understand what this means.

Any help appreciated

Cheers

Unless the partition table is obviously wrong (ie. wrong capacity), you should try to repair the filesystem, read https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf there is a chapter about this problem.
Good luck

Hi there
Sorry for the delayed reply.

Did you mean to use command print? I ran this and I get the message “chkdsk not available for RAW drives”

How should I proceed please?

Should I be following the instructions in chapter 7.5?
