External 3TB Hard Drive Corrupt Files
Posted on 2014-11-13
I have a 3TB Western Digital hard drive which I can view all the file/folders on yet when i open any of the files regardless of file type it states the file maybe corrupt.
In Windows 7 I ran a chkdks from the command-line which did repair some index yet it error out stating it was not able to recover the MBR table due to lack of space. Yet 1.5GB of free space is on the drive.
1) Does an external drive have an MBR?
2) Are they an GPT tools in windows which I should use?
3) I was able to open some files after the chkdks but not all of them
4) It sounds like the partition table is messed up is my only option to use a recovery software..
