I am currently working on retrieving someone's data. I didn't have my black x box yesterday when I originally got the HDD so I used a little sata to usb adapter. Winows 7 came up and said that the drive needed to be inspected and repaired (or something like that). I clicked ok and let it do it's thing for a couple hours. After about two hours it was less than 20% done so I cancelled. Of course after that I couldn't read the drive. I went into computer management and storage management and clicked create new volume because there was no drive letter currently assigned. Went through the steps to do that and the drive letter showed up but still couldn't access it. Came into my other office today where I have a black x box and hooked it up and tried to run get data back. The ntfs version does not recognize an NTFS partition on the disk. However, if I run the FAT version of GDB it finds data. When it is done finding data though it can't display it properly. The file names are just random characters. Any advice on where to go from here? I fear that I have screwed it up beyond repair by accidentally changing it to a FAT file system. But then again aren't there ways of recovering data that is even further gone than this?
