Story of what happened recommend you read it
I have a 2TB desktop External hard drive, WD of course but i been using Truecrypt to encrypt my external hard drive, then my sister out of nowhere takes my powerpoint for the hard drive off then bam.
The encryption was around 80% with errors like ''Unreadable sectors, want to write to zero? (chose yes couple of times)
And ''The device has an i/o error'' everytime while trying to resume, Truecrypt did say that the hard drive will be unreadable until it is fully encrypted
So then i started finding software to fix it and i stumble across something called spotmau powersuite and guess what...i caught some files that worked but not in its original format such as MKV turned into avi and stuff like that, i want to fix this without formatting so i tried other ways such as Testdisk, Norton ghost and many more...
Until not long ago i tried R-Studio which actually caught my attention by recoverable or reading files onto the disk, so not all hope is lost, can someone help me either:
1. Finish Truecrypt
2. Kill or fix either partion table or bad sectors without formatting
3. Make windows open that **bleep** out
What the windows recognize as:
3.Seems like windows thinks theres nothing on it so it chooses it to be 1.82TB out of 1.82TB so like no space used at all
4.Format it to use it

Well....mate if you already run several data recovery software and you still having the issue then you will need to contact a recovery company....
