000s to a hdd help

Recommended Posts

Hi i have accidently started to write 000s to my hdd with Parted Magic software... I started at 1% and i cancelled it. Will i be able to recover my  data with Ontrack EasyRecover Pro?

 

It gets to like 2.50% and just hangs

 

P.S this is life or death

If it gets to 2.5% and hangs, you already have your answer... 'No'.

 

I've used r-studio in the past to recover stuff. Let it do a complete hdd scan and then copy/rescue/restore what you can from the listing it comes up with onto another drive.

What are you actually trying to save off the hdd?

 

If you can't find the files in r-studio's list (I expect you can search through what it has found) or don't really care if you get them back again or not, yeah just format it and start again.

Going back to r-studio...

 

When you tell it to scan, just tell it to only scan for NTFS stuff (I assume that's the FS used on the HDD?).

 

I'm pretty sure I remember there being several random things listed on the one I did years ago, you need to find the 'most correct' branches from what's listed.

 

Recover is hardly ever going to be perfect.

Why would it be?

 

You've got a drive you're trying to recover that you know is (was) formatted using NTFS. Why would you bother looking for other filesystems?

They aren't, it's just picking up a signature from a sector on the drive. When there are x million of them, that's bound to happen eventually.
