Five minutes ago I was browsing my external hard drive. Now, I have only one folder named "found.000" that I cannot read, open nor browse. I have important work on my external hard drive. Is there a way to retrieve my data?
I was trying to use TestDisk but I do not know how to use it very well and I don't know the type of partition there is on my external hard drive (Toshiba Stor.E Canvio - 500Gb) this is what the log says :
Disk /dev/rdisk2 - 500 GB / 465 GiB - 976773168 sectors (RO) Current partition structure: Partition Start End Size in sectors Warning: number of heads/cylinder mismatches 255 (NTFS) != 1 (HD) Warning: number of sectors per track mismatches 63 (NTFS) != 1 (HD) 1 P HPFS - NTFS 2048 976771119 976769072 [TOSHIBA EXT] Warning: Bad starting sector (CHS and LBA don't match) No partition is bootable 0 D FAT32 715093261 1896786745 1181693485 FAT32 715093261 1896786745 1181693485 check_FAT: can't read FAT boot sector Invalid FAT boot sector 0 D FAT16 LBA 2125262773 5909813675 3784550903 FAT16 LBA 2125262773 5909813675 3784550903 check_FAT: can't read FAT boot sector Invalid FAT boot sector 0 D FAT32 LBA 1365415759 2816414404 1450998646 FAT32 LBA 1365415759 2816414404 1450998646 check_FAT: can't read FAT boot sector Invalid FAT boot sector 0 D FAT12 2873871126 2963834879 89963754 FAT12 2873871126 2963834879 89963754
I am using a macbook pro mid-2009, with Snow Leopard (Mac OX 10.6.8). I tried to retrieve my data with MacKeeper the disk is not readable. It is an NTFS disk.
Here are some screenshots from Testdisk.
Thank you in advance.
