Windows 7: CHKDSK deleted 2TB of stuff

Well keep working on the data recovery and deal with the repairs afterward. Any changes now has the potential to interfere with recovery.

When that is done you could try running checkdisk with the f and v tags (suggestion from Slartybart). This will attempt to find and fix the file system on the drive.
chkdsk G: /f /v
You could try this with the cloned drive, if it doesn't work you may have to make a new clone.

Windows 7

plz help,my important files were gone!
I have a 1T external hard drive( NTFS, my passport Western Digital) .yesterday i right click on drive in windows 7 my computer --> properties --> tools --> check now --> and i check both these boxes :
-Check Disk dialog box Automatically fix file system errors
-Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors
after about 2 hour, process finished.but when i go to my external hard drive. i just found 30 gb of my files and folder was remain and other(about 900 gb!) were lost! and the free space of disk wasn't changed that maybe shows folder and files are not deleted.

why were the data deleted? Chkdsk tell nothing me when it completed! If data disappears it usually is because files are damaged and the

Chkdsk utility attempts to separate the damaged files out BUT there aren't any files or folders with such as these names "found.000" or "*.chk" in my external hdd.( showing hidden and system files is on)

note: i found my chkdsk log in event view in windows cp :
there ware a lot of records like this : Deleting orphan file record segment 60010.

plz help to find prob and get my files back .

Have you tried to recover the files using a recovery program like RECUVA?

Try that first before doing anything else.
