External USB HDD

#1 Post by Fael » 15 Jul 2012, 07:06

Hello, everyone.

I recently experienced the unfortunate failure of my external USB hard drive where I keep my daughter's photos and videos and I'm desperately trying to recover the files. I've tried using Testdisk to no avail. I've also Googled the log errors and some people have had success recovering their files (with the help of some wonderful forum members!).

However, I'm a complete newbie regarding disk recovery and I could not grasp why some members suggested their proposed solutions (e.g., increase cylinders number, change heads number). If I had understood what they were seeing, I would have already tried something on my disk but I'm too weary of trying because of the emotional attachment I have towards the information in it.

With all that said, I would be thoroughly grateful towards any helpful information anyone could provide me.

The Testdisk log is the following (I used the Analyse and the Deeper Search functions):

Yesterday I tried doing what Fiona suggested in this thread:
Fiona wrote:Partition found by TestDisk is only XXX GB.
Probably wrong, because it's too small.
But in your partition table is a partition whicht fits.
Could you have a boot sector diagnose?
Start TestDisk, confirm at create a log with enter and select your affected disk.
Confirm at partition table type with enter also
Don't confirm at Analyse but Advanced.
Confirm at Boot.
Highlight Rebuild BS and hit Enter.
Rebuild your BS will be in progress.
Normally, it takes some minutes.
If it's finished, please post the infos or upload a screen.
If you see a menu List, please highlight it and press enter.
Please let us know, do you see your data or an error message.
To get back to the previous screen, easily press q for Quit.
Procedur would be like in this thread;
http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/part ... h-t14.html
If you're able to watch your data, you could write your boot sector.

Still, the 500GB WD USB HD could not be mounted so I tried using Analyse -> Quick Search. This returned a positive result listing the original partition, which is a little bit odd because I still could not mount it (Ubuntu said: "Error mounting: mount: /dev/sdc1: can't read superblock"). I tried Deeper Search but it was too late and I went to sleep and left the computer running.

I'll update this thread tonight (GMT-5 time) with the results.

Have you been able to list your files?
Until yet it looks like that you have a partition in your partition table.
Only a partition in your partition table would look unformatted, what you shouldn't do.
Would it be possible to upload or copy and paste the content of your diks using testdisk and your diagnose.
Currently your partition table (Analyse) would be important and Quick Search.
If no partition will bee found, from Deeper Search also.
If a partition is found, please mark that partition and press p to list your files.

I just ran a Quick Search and a partition was found. I selected "p" (show files) and I got this log:

TestDisk exited normally.
The files shown are indeed some of my music files. However, I'm starting to freak out because I can't see any of my pictures or any other important files, for that matter.

How should I proceed?

Your music files are only copied to your disk.
That's why there is no directory.
But there are two folder/directories where your photos are supposed to be in?
They'are;
227300 drwxr-xr-x 0 0 0 10-Aug-2009 22:39 iTunes
228399 drwxr-xr-x 0 0 0 10-Aug-2009 22:41 Fonoteca Vieja

I'd suggest to copy your files first
At the bottom of the screen are all the commands.
Standard directory is your testdisk folder.
If you want to change ist, you can mark that two dots and press enter, you'll get one directory up.
To enter any folder, just check it and use your right arrow key on your keyboard.

Alright, I've copied all the available files. However, this was all music! There are no pictures, software, nor other files I care about on that list. Plus I still cannot mount it. :cry:
Is there anything I can do to recover the other files? Or at least to make my USB drive usable again?

Thanks for helping me out, Fiona!

I just noticed that the partition found by Testdisk has a FAT32 file system. However, the original file system was NTFS. Is there anyway I can repair my disk?

You can have a Diagnose from your current partition changing it to NTFS.
But before it would be advisable to run Deeper Search.
As far as I've seen in your logs, you ran only Quick Search.
This can take a while, because the backup of the boot sector is located at the end of the partition and probably your disk.
Please run Deeper Search first.

I've run Deeper Search multiple times (but didn't record any logs from those searches) and it didn't find any other partition. It only finds the one FAT32 partition. Again, thanks for helping me out!
