>>52636089

Run it through the free trial of handy recovery or recuva and see if you get different results, particularly with deep scan

What did I do wrong?

Thanks will try

Photorec pulls files without any structure but I have no other drive large enough to recover it all

Recova seems to be finding everything. "Excellent state". Just trying to figure out where else to put them or how to just access them on this one again
>>
>>52635971
>BUT DOES IT WORK
Don't fix stuff that ain't broke, nigga.
From what i see there is a partition inside another partition.
Gparted would say "overlapping partitions".
I fixed it by copying all stuff i want to keep to external media, recreate the partition table, and create new partitions on which you are going to put your backup.

Other methods may fuck up your drives REAL bad.

>>52636334

You're dumb fuck enough not to have backups, don't be dumb fuck enough to restore to the same drive. Do it to a different drive. Go and take evening classes, get a comfy job, buy a second hard drive; liberate one from your local police department or just put your shit on a shelf until you win the lottery.

Restore to the same drive and know this: even Reddit will cast you out, and you'll only be welcome at AOL

AOLs not that bad

partition overlap?
>>
>>52636431
Is there any way to shrink one and extend another to fix the overlap without losing anything?
>>
>>52636506
As far as i know, no.
Of course you can defrag and optimize the drive and cross your fingers that the data is not in the blocks that you're editing.

the safest way to fix without formatting would be to use an external drive (or drive in a virtual machine) that can hold both partitions and copy each partition and place them after each other.
you can then individually shrink and copy them back.
if there is any data overlap this is useless, i wouldn't do the above method on my own drive, i'd rather reinstall.
>>
>>52636506

No - shrinking doesn't save unallocated space, which is where your shit is

Reread >>52636436

What if I delete the other partition and extend this one

thanks faggots
