If I have a copy of the Master File Table (MFT) in a folder, can I copy it to the right place in the hard drive?
Something weird is happening to some of my hard drives. I have three drives connected to a cheap NAS (bought 5 years ago). They are missing folders and files and when I tried to recover the information with software like TestDisk and Ontrack Easy Recovery I didn’t recover everything, so I used a lot of other software and recovered the $MFT (275MB long). I was able to copy the MFT to another hard drive.
Is there any chance to copy it in the right cluster in the hard drive to recover as much as I can without running an exploration of the hard drive?
