    Convert raw to NTFS

    Hello to everyone!

    A few days ago my Seagate 2TB went to raw all of a sudden. At that point I was running Vista. I typed at a cmd

    Code:
    chkdsk F: /i
    and I got the information that my files are not NTFS but raw.
    I tried to mount the HDD on my Ubuntu 10.04 system in case it works. However I got the following message

    I then tried to fix this issue using testdisk.
    The log from my first attempt is the following

    Code:

    TestDisk exited normally.
    I unmounted it and mounted again while initialising testdisk. At that point I was able to see my HDD on the list.
    I pressed enter and then selected "Intel" in the "Partition Table Type". Next I pressed "Advanced" but there was a statement "No partition available". So I got back and selected "Analyse". A message was there stating that "Partition Read Error". Despite that I selected "Quick search". So something started to happening.

    I should mention that my HDD is 2000Gb while the total cylinders that testdisk could access were ~250Gb...

    When this ended there was a message saying "Strucrure OK" so I selected for a "Deeper search". When this came to an end another message was stating that "No partition found or selected for recovery".

    The log from this procedure is bery big ~3GB and I cannot copy it because while loading it kills itself.

    I tried another time with "Advanced". At that point I saw one partition. I entered using "list" and I saw only one folder of all. The log from the previous procedure is

    I also wanted to try with foremost but while searching I saw that it needs to transfer "corrupted" files to another media. The thing is that my external HDD is my back-up so I don't have enough space to transfer my data...

    Is it possible to access my data again?

    Thank you in advance!
