Any reference on that? I remember reading about some errors that Windows
was not able to repair, but the equivalent Linux tools did.
Andrei, Jordon, Thanks for your help.
I mounted the Drive from a Win XP pro laptop.
Same story: from the 5 directories at the root of the drive, 3 are Ok
and I can browse them and read any file I want.
The two others are holding empty directories and 0b files ...
Same incoherence between the global occupation (~ 200GB) and the defrag
utility report (~ 30GB).
I can't trust build in windows utilities as I'm sure they would delete
every incoherent data.
Does all this ring somebody's bell ?
Apart from using photorec which would save thousands of weirdly named
files, is there still a chance to get them with their original names and
hopefully in their original directory path ?
