Hello,

I have a Stor.E Canvio Toshiba 500Gb external NTFS hard drive. It was working fine like ten minutes ago and now all my files have been replaced by a folder named "found.000" that I cannot open. I tried to retrieve my data using the software mackeeper but it says the disk cannot be read and run Testdisk to try to fix it or retrieve my data but I do not know how to use Testdisk very well.

The TestDisk analysis shows this :

Disk /dev/rdisk2 - 500 GB / 465 GiB - 976773168 sectors (RO)
Current partition structure:
Partition Start End Size in sectors

Can I fix it and retrieve my files?.

My files are found when I scan the drive with Data Rescue 3
