Warning: If you use TestDisk to recover lost partitions on a target hard drive by connecting the drive to a computer other than the one it was originally partitioned and formatted on, you risk the chance of having incorrect data about the drive passed along to TestDisk from the BIOS of this other computer. BIOS chips have at least two different ways of translating disk geometry, and using the wrong data may make it impossible for TestDisk to correctly recover a drive's lost partitions; or worse, you may write the wrong data to the drive's MBR, boot up the disk and then incorrectly write data to the disk leading to further corruption and loss of data. ( This may not apply to all file systems.) TestDisk tries to detect this problem.
