[SOLVED] Incorrect number of heads/cylinders !
Recently I found about TestDisk utility. Out of pure curiosity I used it on my Linux machine.
I was very surprised to see that TestDisk reported incorrect number of heads/cylinders on my HDD.
Please see testdisk.log for more details.
I do not understand how is this possible. My computer is functioning fine. Both Linux and Windows systems are up and running without any hiccups. I did not experience any data loss/corruption.
Is it possible that TestDisk is wrong?
I also used gparted application to test my partitions. It did not find any issues.
Is there another tool that I could use to get a second opinion?
Can anyone help me to fix the drive geometry, without loosing my data.
I'm also curious to know, why this happened? I did not do anything strange with my HDD drive and/or partitions. For partitioning of my drives I always use either the Windows Disk Management tool or Linux partition tool (at installation). One of these tools is not doing the proper job. Or is this maybe a firmware issue, which contains wrong geometry settings.
Thanks in advance,
