Master file table corrupt

Hello,

I purchased a 1 TB Seagate Hard Disc about four months ago.It has two Partitions One 50 GB with Windows 7 New and other a 950 GB with movies,music important documents etc.I also have two more Internal Hard discs with Windows 8 and another windows 7.For last one week or so had problems in booting into new win7 got message that it should be repaired through Windows DVD.Did the needful and booted up.The next day same problem and my action the same. This happened about 7 times or so.

Today same problem.My reaction the same.But while booting I got a message that the 950 GB partition cannot be accessed because MFT is corrupt.Browsed through Windows 7 Forums and as advised in one of the threads downloaded Testdisk.Ran the program but unfotunately the dreaded message that both MFT and Mirror MFT are corrupt.Have lot of badly needed Data and I really want to recover it.

Will be extremely grateful for some advise.

Thanks

Manju

Hi whs,

Thanks for the links.Unfortunately these could not do the job.Am now scanning the partition with Easeus Data Recovery.Hope I can get back my files.

How do we get about repairing the MFT.If some software can recover data from a corrupt partition,Windows should be able to have tool for repair.Just a Rant!!

I don't know of any way to repair the MFT (but that does not mean that it is not possible). But you can try to recover your data. E.g. with this: Free File Recovery Software - Power Data Recovery is an all-in-one free data recovery software that could help you to recover your lost data from hard disk, CD, DVD disk, memory stick, memory card, and flash drive.
