Windows 7: Data recovery problem, Can reach corrupted data but no external space.

09 Feb 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Data recovery problem, Can reach corrupted data but no external space.

Hi everyone..

My external USb Wd mybook box has 1 tb Seagate Sata 3 and i use original Wd disc as W7 installed... in My PC Case as sata II

Today my old problem appears again as Corrupted disc...
I have Get Data Back NTFS (and i used before plenty of times for recovery, loss data or unwanted deletions) but..

This time im stuck.. Becouse the disk i try to recover includes 870 gb (about) used disk space (only audio files) only 50gb (about) empty space... Thats too big for me to recover to other disks.. i don't have enough spaces that my other disks can handle..

I have about 300 gb FREE disk space in several disks or partitions include My thinkpad SL510 Notebook..
So my question is
wit keeping my lost data in corrupted disk first, can i take them slowly to this 300 gb spaces (i know i can) and after create somehow emty space (deleting those recovered 300 gb + 50 on corrupted disk) and
use that empty space for more recovery. ???? Or smilar solutions.. Becouse DISC PRICES IS HEAVY nowadays and really i'm out of budget with buying some
equipments upgrades..
Like creating slowly slowly some extra spaces (don't know how)

I know i look silly in situation becouse i know u should never write to same disc if you dont want to say goodbye to your files..

E-how happened (not necessary to read these part)

according my experiences Thats the mistakes... DOn't do those at the same time ..

After Letting my Share program (DC++) took big share space on that disk today 1-there were people downloading from my disk and don't know why i did that
2-i used heavly that disk to tag & rename my music,
3-Also let windows seven index
4-and also let my dc++ indexes (my share)
I did these things at the same time disks was working.. My Downloads were happening another disk but it didnt help.. there were no any problems, im just suspicious about some virus worked on this corruption but i don't have enough clue to say that.. Seems overload processes made this corruption. Also one more mistake i made even i know shouldnt that there was a single folder with about 450 gb value in my musics as jukebox folder.. Also don't do that

normally i allow for download and upload only single disk for example 180 gb..

Anyway somehow after restarting my OS, i suddenly see half of my data was gone from 1 TB disk, and stupidly unlike other times (while using get data back) i tried to write a little amount from lost data to free space (on same disc) then immediately i gave up) but this time disk become unstable... Completly corrupted after restart (my restart reasons are immediate quit for suspicious virus etc. with using removal batch files becouse i )

SO as classic sorry to take ur time and

Before you write more data or attempt to read data from the drive through Windows, I would suggest using a Live CD like SysRescueCD to boot from and access the HDD.

Thnx for advice. It's an external disc so im not running windows on it.. I tried now with Active partition Recovery, it found my drive to recover and i say yes.. But i don't think it will work this way becouse after recovery there were no files showing on programs lists. Other drive's has files in them that i can see in tree list.. (ım doin this on my Notebook now so can play games or etc to kill time)... I did that process without superscan (program has this function) so hoping thats the reason it didnt show me files.. (ı don't think so)... again i'm making some superscan so may be it will show me my files.. nearly an hour gone and 107 gb of 931 .. it says two partitions found.. I will wait and see...Fingers crossed!
