Strange HDD recovery problems
I'm struggling to recover some files off of a slightly damaged NTFS partition. Tried searching but can't find anything relating to this specific issue.
Basically the MFT seems to be corrupt. Ive tried CGSecurity TestDisk, which recovers deleted files perfectly, but won't recover files that are actually stored in the partition. It has a "List Files" option which fails with a corrupt partition message (I guess it's trying to read the partition as if it were healthy).
I would try PhotoRec but it doesn't recover file names or paths.
Surely there is a way to low-level read the healthy parts of the corrupt partition in a few minutes considering it only has minimal damage?
