My friends have an unexpected issue with his laptop and precisly with hishard disk.
I do several modification but i'm stuck with another problem i'm afraid i can't go through this time.
The goal is only to recover few data (a memoire in fact).
Here is his partition table :
/dev/sda 1 RECOVERY 1.30 Go
/dev/sda 2 OS (windows 8) 372 Go
/dev/sda 5 DATA 537 Go
/dev/sda 1 UNALLOCATED
This is what i get after few manipulation, partition recovery with tesdisk and other program (the hard disk have some hardware damage).
Plus i didn't recover sda 1 because it's isn't necessary for us :
/dev/sda 1 extended 372 Go
'-- > /dev/sda 5 (NTFS partition = OS probably) 372 Go
/dev/sda 2 DATA 537 Go
I need to access /dev/sda 5 again which is the OS partition (i could backup few data but after few manipulation for better access i blew up the HDD).
OS is no longueur accessible, and the fact of sda5 is IN sda1 block access to all tools.
sda 2 (DATA) is mountable when disk won't crash) but it's sda 5 (OS) who is important and locate his data.
How sda 1 and sda 5 have the same size and how could I make sda 5 the primal partition fot gain access ?
I give you the screenshot of the partition table.
Thanks for your help !
