How to fix the master file table
Posted on 2011-09-15
I had a1TB eGo Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0. I stored all my important information there and it used to work fine till yesterday.
Now when I access this drive, Win 7 response that the drive is not formatted and ask me do I want to format it. I contacted Iomega and they cannot offer any help except a replacement.
I tried the Seatools but it cannot even recongize the problematic drive. I also tried R-studio and i-care data. To recover the disk, it need to scan the whole drive. Even with my PC has a top i-7 CPU and 8 GB ram, it takes an hour only finish around 0.1%, It is projected to take 3 weeks to finish the scan.
As I think that this only because some index file got screwed up, is there any quick way to recover the master file table ?
I think about fixmbr but it need to run at recover-console. Isn't it and why ?
