I have a 4 terabyte usb3 external hard drive that I was storing my bluray iso's on. There are about 2 terabytes of iso's on it. I removed drive from usb enclosure and installed it directly to sata connector in HTPC. Upon booting windows it said the drive needs to be initialized, which I said yes to, then it asked MBR or GPT, and I selected MBR which was wrong, so I converted to GPT. Then it said it needed to be formatted.
I removed drive and put back in USB 3 enclosure and plugged in and windows stated it had to be formatted. Now how do I get my 2 terabytes of Blu ray movies back? I assume that windows mucked up a partition table and does not recognize my original file system. Is there any kind of quick fix? I have tried a recovery program, but it has been running for a day and half and it still is only a 1/3 of the way through in just inspecting hard drive, and it has not found any of my ISO's yet. IS there a way to just rebuild file system? I tried test disk, but at rate it was going it would take over a week.?
