Hello. I lost one of my disk drives due the power failure. My os XP SP3. PartitionMagic can see this drive as local disc PqRP with no letter in Disc2.



I download TestDisc 6.11.3, run it in driveC and did next steps:

A. At the first window, select “No Log” and press the <Enter> key.
B. Select which drive to analyse, choose “Proceed” and <Enter>.
C. Select partition type – Intel if it’s a PC then <Enter>.
D. Choose Advanced > press <Enter>.

Now it shows this


What I need to do next to recover drive and do not lost data on it?
Before it was NTFS.
Help, please!

Were you running Partition magic when the power failed? How about a screen shot from disk management?
Yes, I was running Partition magic at power failed moment.

Disc management "says" that partition healthy and 100% free, but it's not free and Partition magic "says" that partition full with data, PqRP, and it's true.:rolleyes:

Three options
1) Safest - recover the data to another disk with something like r-studio, getdataback, photorec and then reformat and reinstall the OS on that partition.
2) Try to recover the partition with partition table doctor - a bit more automated than test_disk
3) Try to recover the partition table or MBR of the disk from the backup table using test_disk ( read the TD docs for details )
