Warning: the current number of heads per cylinder is 255
but the correct value may be 128.
You can use the Geometry menu to change this value.
It's something to try if
- some partitions are not found by TestDisk
- or the partition table can not be written because partitions overlaps.

255 is OK, BUT have you FOLLOWED what I posted before? :dubbio:

IF NOT, go back and set Options as said before analysing the disk.

Only you can say HOW the disk was parttioned BEFORE.
These:
* HPFS - NTFS 0 32 33 1 102 37 20480 [Nouveau nom]
P HPFS - NTFS 12 223 20 12551 128 57 201433088
do seem like the 100 Mb "hidden" partiton of Windows 7 and a biggish NTFS partition, but they are OVERLAPPING! :ph34r:
DO NOT write anything to disk.
Try only highlighting a partition and press p to list files.

:cheers:

HOW it was the disk partitioned BEFORE?
Try to describe with as much detail as possible what you remember on how the disk was before you started fiddling with it, size of partitions, filesystem used, etc.
Try to re-list WHAT exactly happened/WHAT exactly you did to get in this situation.

The first partition:
* HPFS - NTFS 0 32 33 1 102 37 20480 [Nouveau nom]
as said seems like having the "right" addresses, all the other ones seem like being wrong.

before , i just had the d:/ and c:/ partitions ..
i created the "nouveau..." partition to install ubuntu in it because ubuntu didnt recognize my pc's partition, it just shows a big partition unallocated which has the size of c: and d: together.
last night i put my win 7 DVD n did a repair , then it booted correctly and i deleted the "nouveau..." partition ..

now ubuntu still does not recognize the partition and i noticed something wierd . i have a program called recover my files . when i open it , it shows a BIG partition under the column of physical disks and its labelled SAMSUNG HM321 HI.. then under the column of Hard disks there is the c:/ and the d:/

can i send you a snapshot or something ?

This is NOT what TESTDISK report says. (and is not what I asked, BTW)

Try to describe with as much detail as possible what you remember on how the disk was before you started fiddling with it, size of partitions, filesystem used, etc.

So everything is fine. :thumbsup:

Yes, if you restored the system you are in the same original situation.


and i noticed something wierd . i have a program called recover my files . when i open it , it shows a BIG partition under the column of physical disks and its labelled SAMSUNG HM321 HI.. then under the column of Hard disks there is the c:/ and the d:/

I am not familiar with that program, but what you describe is perfectly normal, it is EXACTLY the same view you can have in Disk Management.
You see a "WHOLE" disk containing two partitions.
The graphical may be different, but the concept is the same.

can i send you a snapshot or something ?

Why?

Did you run a full analysis with TESTDISK?
