I had to purchase an encrypted hard drive for work. It is a McAfee/MXI security external drive with biometric/finger identification. I think someone unplugged my drive without properly ejecting it. It is now corrupted. Using testdisk, I can see that all my files are still there. Here is the problem: I can only see the files when I tell testdisk that the partition table type is "none" and then I receive a message that the partition table cannot be rewritten as the partition table type is none. Does anyone have experience with this kind of thing?
Thanks a lot,
Please keep in mind that external drives are for transporting copies of files and data; not for storing the only copy. Important files should always have backup copies stored in different locations & devices.
