I had a some problems in my Hard-drive and now the hard drive seems to be corrupted.
Its Seagate 500GB Hard-Drive
The hard drive started doing problems when i copied files to it, and started to shut down and re-apear, every now and then until it didnt get recognised even in the Bios, whenever it dose get recognised it seems it cant mount or,the partition tables got corrupted.
I ran TestDisk using GParted Live CD, and tried recovering the partition tables by running "analayze" and write to the Windows partition it showed me. after doing so i followed a guide on youtube to mount the partition. i used Partprobe->sync->and mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/
The error i get is
Cant read superblock
after that i tried mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/ and got:
Error reading bootsector: Input/output error Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details.
I have no idea where to proceed from here and need your help fixing this drive.
Note: after writing the partition tables..whenever i get to the fdisk -l i can no more see the other partitions that the disk had.. dose this mean i deleted them using the Write on the first partition?? :(
I thank you for any kind of help in the matter.
