RAW File System on Seagate Free Agent Go Flex 1.5TB External HDD After Ejecting
As the topic title states, my external hdd is now reading the file system as RAW. I have been searching for a solution for some time now with no avail. I saw that improperly ejecting the hdd can cause this problem. I always properly eject my hdd so I do not know how it happened is this case, maybe it has something to do with power surges in the work trailer I am in. The drive is supposed to be NTFS.
Anyways, I have followed the advice from http://html5.litten.com/how-to-fix-external-disk-drive-suddenly-became-raw/ and am still having issues. I have a picture of every step that I have done so maybe there is something in one of them that I am missing.
From this point I used Parted Magic to try to copy files off of the hdd by mounting it, and here is what happened.
I then followed the steps to start analyzing the drive. Here are the pictures for each step.
When I clicked analyze, I received this message.
Here is the next screen.
Results of the quick search.
Here are the files that showed up.
I went under advanced and looked at the boot sector and here is what it showed.
I ran a deeper search and this was what was found.
Once the search reached this cylinder, the search drastically slowed down so I left it running overnight. I thought I took a picture of the results of that, but I guess I lost it.
I tried changing the heads from "255" to "128" under geometry and then clicked on analyze. Here is what it showed.
This is pretty much everything that I have done up to this point and have had no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will try to rerun the deep scan and take a picture of the results and post it.
