windows7 home basic 64bit

Dear Jumanji,

I'm thankfull!

Did exactly what you guided me!

Within TestDisk enviroment MFT matched perfectly and after a reboot... all my files were listed and fully accessible in windows explorer!

Thank you so much! I would never, ever achieved this result without your helpfull guidance!

Nice and easy, steady, cirurgically reaching the exact point of the issue!

Believe me, I've read a lot about hdd issues, TestDisk documentation and guidelines... and if I have tried
TestDisk just by myself I would never do what you told me to do because I wouldn't be able to make the right diagnose of it!

Many asleep nights worried about and having no clue of which way to go...

Isn't that amazing, you almost in the other side of world (referred to me) willing to help just for helping!

I will never forget your kindness and friendly help.

I whish this thread can be helpfull to many others as it was for me.

Thank you once again; I whish you a long and healthfull life!

I'm happy to mark this thread as solved!

Thank you once again and please, let me know how can I register it to your forum reputation.
