360GB hard drive showing 48.8GB capacity. HDTune doesnt look good

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
A few months ago I put a bunch of photos on a hard drive on my sister's rig. Now I want to put those photos on my computer but when I check up on my sister's rig, the photos aren't there. The hard drive that the photos are on also have a SMART error (don't know which one yet) and they do not show the correct capacity (48.8 instead of 360GB)

The hard drive is a Seagate 7200.11. I have taken the hard drive out and have it plugged via USB (using a sata >> usb connector) to my main rig and did an HDTune erorr test run and here are the results:



Now, I don't really care about the hard drive at all -- but the photos are what I am looking for. I need your help to find a solution to recover these photos. What I have done so far is use a file recovery program called "recover my files". I don't know if it's that great but it has helped me get some of the photos back though they aren't the ones I am looking for. If anyone can recommend me a better program/solution, it would be well appreciated!!

Owch.... the majority of the drive is damaged...
I don't know if you'll be able to nab anything...

First, what's the SMART status? (Check the Health tab, or use something better like GSmartControl.)

Second, unfortunately, that nice little colored display really doesn't say much about what's really going on. Especially if it's also saying that 0% of the disk is damaged.

... All those colors, should be Green. Not Yellow, Orange, or Red.
Use CrystalDisk to get SMART data. Less hassle than HDTune.

Small update:

I have been using recovery my files to salvage some photos out of my SD card and so far I have found lots of lost photos but still not the ones I want (though I'm getting close). Small problem though, almost all the photos are 4 GB large and my SSD is running out of room. I have found a way to workaround (albeit incredibly time consuming way) this while recover my files scans my other healthy yet identical hard drive to see if there was any chance I could have saved the photos on the other hard drives.



How would I check SMART data in crystal disk??

Download CrystalDiskInfo Portable Edition (Direct Link), basically unzip it, run the .exe, select the drive and screen cap what you see.

Should show up right as you start the program.
