I recently sent my Macbook Pro in for repairs after a crash (Windows partition not recognized, after working well for a year), and they replaced the logic board and HD, the former of which was dead and the latter of which "wasn't running very well". I got the HD back, and have been trying to get data off it; the problem is, most of my data was stored on my Windows Bootcamp partition, which I can now see - but not access.
This is the info I got off it, since Disk Utility still recognizes it.
Mount Point : /Volumes/BOOTCAMP Capacity : 116.7 GB (125,294,346,240 Bytes) Format : Windows NT File System (NTFS) Available : 26.6 GB (28,521,467,904 Bytes) Used : 90.1 GB (96,772,874,240 Bytes) Number of Files : 138,674 Owners Enabled : No Number of Folders : 0
I feel as if there should be a way to recover data from the drive, since it obviously still...exists and is recognized. But using
Verify in Disk Utility returns a
Verify volume failed: invalid request, and I can't otherwise see any files, since there are apparently 0 folders.
Does anyone have any recommendations for data recovery software that works in Mac? I can't just run Windows from an external drive because the HD with the Bootcamp on it is Mac-formatted.
