Hi

I have a 3 TB Seagate external hardrive that I removed from the case because it was registering as raw and Windows 7 wanted to reformat and then the usb port just died. I am using an ex-dock and have opened  Parted Magic but drive does not show up.So I ran testdisk with No Log I selected my drive>selected Intel>selected Advance>Selected boot Showed Boot sector and Backup boot sector were both Bad. So selected Rebuild BS and it found my files (see below) My question is since it found my files is it safe to Write now...or will that screw up my chances of recovering my files?
