Windows 7: HDD lost partition recovery related problem (Samsung HD103uj 1TB)

HDD lost partition recovery related problem (Samsung HD103uj 1TB)

Hello all,

I am trying to find ways to recover all of my important data from my hard drive which was not working suddenly.

After several attempts of recoveries, I have decided to buy a same HDD because it didn't even appear on disk management. And I replaced a board of that on my old drive and then I can see it on disk management.

Of course, I did click on cancel on disk initializing.

Then, I have used Partition Wizard tool to recover my data what I have discovered from this forum.

Actually, it is big numbers of sectors since capacity of hard drive is 1TB.

From this point,I have experienced that too low scanning rate (128 sectors/sec) was going there and it is hard to wait till the end. It will take about 176 days at that speed, approximately.

Is there any solution on this problem? What could be the reason of slow scanning speed?

I have many comments to make on your dealing with this issue but will reserve it for a later moment since you are already on with the Full scan and so I shall catch on it for the moment.

I see the scan had gone upto 1920 sectors. Hold on till it reaches 2048 and beyond. The first partition will always (in most cases) start on 2048. Let us see whether it finds the partition at 2048.

Post a screenshot after it goes beyond 2048.

Let me know whether the scan is still on. Otherwise I shall go to sleep and return only after another ten hours and shall see the screenshot then. After posting the screenshot wait for half an hour.

If I am not seen in that half an hour cancel the scan and close Partition Wizard.
I shall continue tomorrow ( my tomorrow)

Thanks for reply.

I wrote it just a moment before going to sleep and I see your reply now.

When I woke up, the scanned sector was about 1,195,000 at the same speed (around 128 sector/second) and it was 0% still after 7 hours. And I have cancelled all of scan and came to my work. Here, I am trying to scan it with my work computer, which is much better than my home PC. I expected that the slow speed of scanning may be related with my home PC, but I got same speed.

Here is a image of that result with my work computer:

I get a little bit faster speed with Power Data Recovery Free Edition V7.0 than previous software.

Speed is seem like around 256 sector/second, but it is still slow speed (0.0003% at 1h)...
