I had a Western Digital 1TB HDD crash on me a few months ago. It had 2 partitions, C Drive, has docs/photos and important stuff I still have yet to recover. and G drive, which I've recovered everything from. A friend had had intermittent luck getting the drive to function, but I bought a replacement HDD identical to the failed one, and replaced the "motherboard" part of the drive. I have placed the failed drive into a USB enclosure drive, and tried to see what files are where, but then it goes over my head. testdisk/photorec are all touted as simple, but there's simple, and then there's SIMPLE. I need SIMPLE..
Shown below is a screen grab of what I see using these apps.
Below, in Disk Manager (WIN 8) It shows F: 801GB.. It Is a NTFS.. The G: Partition, as I mentioned, isnt an issue. NEED to save what is on F.....
Doing the "Quick Search" as highlighted above yields this result:
I CAN follow instructions, if anyone has a method of helping me fix the MFT.
Need a different grab off the screen? Let me know.. Any help is Exceedingly Appreciated.
