Hi. My 500GB 2.5" HDD would often not be able to be safely removed from my Win 7 laptop even though resource monitor showed no activity on the drive. So just as often I had to unplug it without safely removing it. After the last time, the filesystem is now showing up as RAW.
I have enough HDD room for essential file recovery on my Vista Desktop PC, so I booted it in PartedMagic via USB Flash drive and ran TestDisk with the HDD connected via USB. After the "Deeper Search", when I try to view files it says, "Can't open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged." Also when I try to mount it in PartedMagic, it doesn't show up with the other mountable partitions.
-HDD sounds fine
-I can connect it directly via SATA if needed
-HDD contained several very large files (128GB, 2x 100GB, 16GB)(Truecrypt container files)
