Please help me recover my files!

#1 Post by atticus » 11 Apr 2018, 01:04

I really need some help recovering my files in one of my partitioned drive. The drive which was used to store my files became RAW and the other drive letter sequence was skipped. I’m lost on how to recover those data and I will try to describe what happened to the best of my ability.
Drive C: (a SSD where my Windows 10 is installed is working fine)
Drive D: (a 1TB HDD which I have splitted into 3 equal drives turned from NTFS to RAW)
Drive F: (part of the 1TB HDD partitioned NTFS drive, originally named Drive E: now became F: and is working fine)
Drive G: (part of the 1TB HDD partitioned NTFS drive, originally named Drive F: now became G: and is working fine)
So what happened was previously my windows kept crashing and it couldn’t repair itself and I made various attempts to reformat and install both Windows 7 and 10 but eventually, changing my SSD fixed the issue. After all that happened, I discovered the Drive D: which is my HDD became RAW but the files in other 2 partitions are still intact. I suspect windows did something to that drive during the repair and recovery on the windows installed on my SSD. So now the drive D: which stores my photos and songs is now inaccessible.

Now, I’ve tried using TestDisk and saw a drive name “Windows RE(store)” but I’m not sure what is that. But I did both quick and deeper search, P: list files and did not show any of my existing files either. Before the quick search, I could see a duplication of Drive D: but after the quick and deeper search, the drive D: was not shown at all.
Tried Rebuild BS but didn’t work (Boot sector Status Bad/ Backup boot sector Status: Bad/ Sectors are identical).
Couldn’t Undelete (Can’t open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged).

Tried using PhotoRec and none of my files were found in there as well.
I've transferred away all files in other drives of the HDD just in case something happens in the process, I just need the files that seems to be lost in the affected drive now. Please help, thank you!

Re: Please help me recover my files!

Run TestDisk, Advanced, Boot, RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit.

I don't understand why PhotoRec hasn't found your pictures, can you enable the expert mode in Options, start a recovery and force the blocksize to 512 bytes.
If nothing is recovered, it may be because TRIM is enable on your SSD ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trim_(computing) ), in this case, nothing can be done

Thanks for the reply cgrenier!
I've tried to Rebuild BS but it doesn't seem to do anything. It just show the same following:
Boot sector Status: Bad
Backup boot sector Status: Bad
Sectors are identical

I started a recovery in expert mode, forcing the blocksize to 512 bytes and it still does not show any files.
I've just checked that TRIM is indeed enabled on my SSD, but the affected drive is on my HDD. Do you mean TRIM applies to HDD as well?
Would it mean there is nothing I can do anymore and my files are lost forever, even if I send my HDD to a professional data recovery company?

Does anyone have any answer? I really need to know if I can still have any hope to recover my files..
