Can you post
- the result of TestDisk, Analyse
- the list of your partitions with various information like filesystem type (FAT, NTFS...), the size, the label

Thanks for the reply - quick search3.jpg (after running quick analyse) is what I remember to be correct - all partitions NTFS - is this enough information?

deeper analyse2.jpg was taken just before deeper analysis completed - I never created any FAT16 partitions on the drive.

Hi, I realize that I am way over my head in this forum, however everyone has to start somewhere!! Please could some one point me in the right direction - There are some valuable files, bookmarks and research (not backed up :oops: ) on the corrupt drive. Also I am trying to discover what caused this situation in the first place - if it was a virus will photo rec, recover infected files onto my new hard drive? I have had Bullguard antivirus running and have used malwarebytes and spybot - but have had infections get through on both this PC win 7 and another PC running win XP. Tutorials to read or relevant threads would be a huge help, so I can learn more about how test disk works... thanks
