I ran disk utility and looked for errors on a NTFS drive that was working fine but had been ejected abruptly after the computer was forced to shut down. After that a bunch of errors just appeared in red and the disk became "empty". The only folder available is named "found.000" and cannot be opened.
I have been able to recover data from the disk with Data Rescue but the folder structure is not there. I have a bunch of folders like MP3 1, MP3 2, Documents etc. containing the files with the corresponding format and some have even been renamed.
I ran Test Disk and the geometry of the disk seems to be wrong but I do not dare to deal with it because I do not know Test Disk really well and I cannot find many information about head/cylinder numbers etc.
Is there any software that allows mac users to retrieve data with folder structure?
I am running Snow Leopard 10.6.8
This is the Test Disk log :
