Hard Drive Recovery


I have a Seagate 1 TB SSHD that recently stopped working. I was able to read it via a Linux Live CD but it was unable to boot into Windows and the Win7repair funciton would not work. I was tryingto recover the boot mgr/ MFS table with Testdisk and now it appears as a Block Device and reads empty. I did a dmesg | grep/dev/sda and received the output below:

root@kali:/dev# dmesg | grep sda

There isn't any critical data that resided on the drive but it would be nice to be able to put it back into use even if I can't recover the data.

Any suggestions?

Welcome aboard.

sda: unable to read partition table
I think that says it all, no partition table.
As there is no critical data on it, just put it down to experience.
Just repartition it, put a filesystem on it, & use it.

What is the output of "smartctl -a /dev/sda" as root?

With all of those I/O errors you probably have a ton of reallocated sectors, and you finally lost a sector related to the partitioning setup. Even if you repartition it that drive is most likely on its last legs and will give out very soon.
