I'm in a big trouble and i would like to ask your help to try to solve it!
I'm in a 6 month trip along Center America and i'm taking lot of pictures, which i'm saving in an usb pen.
I'm using an ASUS netbook with atom 2600 and 2gb ram with windows7.
Some days ago i was working on my blog and choosing pictures from the usb. When finished with the pendrive i've decided to eject it to put it in a safe place, but when i tried it starting to take a very long time to do it. While the system was working fine the ejecting was still trying. I wrongly decide to take it away manually but when i insert it again to check if everything was ok i couldn't enter anymore in the "data" directory where i had many other directories and especially the "foto" one, with 20gb more or less of pictures and .mov!!!
When trying to access to the DATA directory it says: "File or directory is corrupted or unreadable"
It also says me when inserted the usb something like this: "Scan and fix or continue without scanning" but i'm not sure to trust this and try it out.
The pendrive is a 30gb Verbatim formatted with NTFS and bootable with the win7 installation.
I've used getdataback for NTFS to find the pictures: it found all the directories structures and the right names, it also found all the pictures with the names and the right sizes, but when i copy them in the netbook hdd 1/3 or maybe 1/4 of theme are just grey, completely grey.
The pendrive shows the right amount of available space, so it make me thinks that the files are all still there! Seems like the filesystem has corrupted, so i'm wondering if some repairing could fix the problem or not...
I hope i was clear enough and that you could help me!! These pictures are very important for me!!!
Thanks very much!!
