I have a Dell Dimension E310, Pentium 4, 3.2GHz, 2 GB RAM, with Windows Media Center Edition on my C drive. I also have a second Seagate Barracuda disk (1 TB) for my data which is my D drive (Data). When I boot up I get the BSOD reading - 
"Checking file system on D:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Volume label is Data.
One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you contine.
Windows will now check the disk.
Corrupt master file table. CHKDSK aborted." (See attached pic)
I can access the C drive through Explorer, but cannot access my D drive any more. When I try, it reads..."D:\ is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."
I've already ran "Seatools for DOS" and found 3 errors which it repaired. I still get the same message at boot.
I've run "TestDisk" as well and it did not help either. Apparently, my MFT mirror copy was corrupted as well. Still the same message at boot.
How can I restore the master file table for my D drive. Not just recover data to another drive (which I don't have). Please help!!!

Looking at the Test Disk page...I don't believe that there is any option other than data recovery.




Test Disk is the tool that I have seen used here (by others) for any attempts at overcoming this problem.


FWIW:  Take a look at http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/150368-any-way-of-rebuilding-a-corrupt-mft/ .
