Background: Visual Studio 2017 was release two days ago, 2017-03-07, and to get a clean install I decided to format and reinstall my OS, Windows 10.
For my storage disk, I use TrueCrypt 7.1a. After formatting my OS-hard drive, reinstalling Windows 10 and TrueCrypt the errors started. When I mounted the hard drive in TrueCrypt it said that my
Volume Header was corrupt and that I needed to restore it. After doing so I saw a new drive like before but I got the error
You need to format the disk in drive X: before you can use it.
I then tried running
NTFS Data Recovery Toolkit v. 8 and
TestDisk 7.0 to recover my partition but this failed. I only got the error below which I don't know what it means from TestDisk Dump.
A disk error occurred...BMKRI is missing...BMKRI is compressed...Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
When this failed I installed TrueCrypt 7.2 and managed to decrypt the hard drive. When checking my storage drive now my new error is:
E:\ is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect.
If I try to run
chkdsk I get the following message:
The type of the file system is NTFS. Unable to determine volume version and state. CHKDSK aborted.
Disk Management the disk is marked as File System
I then tried
NTFS Data Recovery Toolkit again and now I could actually see my content! I used the tool Active@ Partion recovery and QuickScan/SuperScan. The only error that I can see is
Overlapped partition detected.
My question now is where do I go from here? I do not wan't to risk anything now that I have gotten this far.
Tried this guide to restore a partition, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_kvJF87Drc
TestDisk -> Create -> Select Disk -> Proceed -> Intel -> Quick Search -> Enter -> Write -> Reboot.
I still can't view the disk in Windows but in
NTFS Data Recovery the
Recovery Status changed to
Existing Volume and the drive is now marked as green instead of red.
