Filesystem may be damaged, BS OK, MFT not OK!

#1 Post by MerNion » 09 Aug 2012, 12:15

Hey!

I have a WD Cavial Blue 250GB WD2500AAJB disk which all of a sudden stopped working. I run testdisk from a livecd and eventhough it says that it is NTFS and displays the size correctly, when i try to list the files it says "Filesystem may be damaged". From the Advanced menu > Boot it says the Boot sector and backup boot sector is OK, BUT it can not read the MFT.. Look at last screenshot.

Here are the screenshots from testdisk:


The important one though i think is this one:



What do I do now that MFT can't be read...?

Thanks a lot!

Yes, it is the last screenshot above. "Can't read NTFS MFT".
