I had a 40gb pata maxtor running my os. I dicided to get a new hard drive(wd 80gb sata) to load my os off of. I stored all the files i need to keep onto my wd 160gb sata drive but now it whants me format it. Computer manegment says its healthy(active).I tried running testdisk, when i got to Rebuild BS it says:

1 * HPFS - NTFS 0 1 1 4866 53 51 78175617 [DRV1_VOL1]

Can't open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged.


[ Quit ]
quit this sector.

If it is damaged is there a way to repair it without loosing my data?
I'm at a loss for what to do next.

I ended up using getdataback to get my information. When i try using error checking, i click start and it just closes the check disk box. I'm trying to format now.

Yeah i got my data back:smile:. After deleting the old corrupt partition i was able to format the drive. I don't know if its still damaged though, after installing World of Warcraft to it my computer tends to freeze a lot. I uninstalled it but it's still freezes now and then. I don't think the problem is with the hard drive though.:normal: Before i did that I had already moved most of the files back. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the help so far this forum has been a great help!
