    Bad Structure Test Disk

    Can somebody help me figuring out why Teskdisk says in the following data that the structure is bad.

    The end size of the sector is much larger than the fourth partition and none of the partition is overlapping but it does'nt let me choose the fourth partition ( Bazzinga )

    Disk \\.\PhysicalDrive0 - 320 GB / 298 GiB - CHS 38914 255 63

    HPFS - NTFS 0 32 33 12 223 19 204800 [System Reserved]
    HPFS - NTFS 12 223 20 9138 11 25 146595840

    Re: Bad Structure Test Disk

    In Windows did you create more than the 4 primary partitions. It converts to dynamic which uses logical partitions that may overlap the physical partitions?

    Or is an extended partition just beyond the end of the drive. I cannot easily convert the testdisk CHS output and prefer just the sector output from fdisk

    sudo fdisk -lu

    If just partition table issue not dynamic partitions.

    First backup partition table, use your drive for sdX or sda, sdb etc.
    sudo sfdisk -d /dev/sdX > parts.txt
