Few days ago, my external hard disk (seagate 100GB) was broke down. It’s said “The drive F is not formatted, do you want to format it now?” I know, if i click yes, all the files in my Hard Disk will go back to stoneage. So, I’ve been searching for a whole day for the solution. Then I have come across one very useful software call TestDisk.

It’s a powerful recovery software. It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.

TestDisk can

  • Fix partition table, recover deleted partition
  • Recover FAT32 boot sector from its backup
  • Rebuild FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 boot sector
  • Fix FAT tables
  • Rebuild NTFS boot sector
  • Recover NTFS boot sector from its backup
  • Fix MFT using MFT mirror
  • Locate ext2/ext3 Backup SuperBlock
  • Undelete files from FAT, NTFS and ext2 filesystem
  • Copy files from deleted FAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3 partitions.

Thanks to this software, I don’t have to take my Hard Disk to the shop. I still can save money for a drink (hehe)

For the information how to use it? Please read in TestDisk site.
