|Left the drive alone for a while. Tried testdisk but couldn't find any partitions. Then closed testdisk and opened an explorer window. To my surprise, the drive was reading correctly and main file structure was there but no data in them. When i checked the drive through disk management, it said drive was NTFS, healthy, no partition info or something like that. Left the computer for a while and when it came back from sleep, i had no access to the drive again.|
So apparently the drive is not completly fried but i can't figure why testdisk couldn't even read the partition information.
Then i tried recuva but either it froze or i didn't give it enough time. Program didn't seam to be responding.
Again...any other ideas? I kind of want to try all my options before opening it up.
Thanks for the responses so far and the ones to come.
