Hi, I’ve a problem. This will be the second time this has happened but not to the same USB hard drive. The drive changed to RAW and of course all my files are unavaliable. I’m wondering if I can repair the boot sector. On the other HD I used Easus Data Recovery Wizard. I was able to recover all my video fies BUT all my eComics and docs where saved in a subfolder labeled RAW. They were scrambled and unusable. If I could repair the boot sector I’m thinkin’ I could save all those files.
If I try TestDisk, can I possibly lose the video files?  Anyone here recovered a NTFS boot table and can offer some advice?  I’ve Win 7 Pro and the USB HD has 1 partition.

I got one time a 2.5″ HD that was in RAW. All the files were gone suddenly ( maybe an electric problem) 

i found a software called “Hard Disk Low Level Format tool” that helped me very much, really it saved my life.

i was able to recover the disk & all the files, but effectively not all the files were recovered & i had a backup. 


But i don’ t know if it applies to you, i am not specialist for recovery. 

I will not say to you “try one shot with this jewel!” i will be responsible if you lose everything…


on the site it is a disclaimer. it applies to me too. 

“WARNING: After running this low level format tool, the whole disk surface will be erased. 
Data restoration is impossible after using this utility! “


So I advise you to continue to search good ideas …or go to a recovery specialist surgeon.

if the value of your files is so important that you can pay for.


Try “hddguru” on google to find the soft.

i hope it can help.
