Did a defrag on a drive, it seems to have killed most content on it. Any way to revert?
So I pulled a hard drive from a laptop computer and placed it on mine. Was on my Win 8 partition at the time, so I ran the default defrag program that comes with Win8. It said the drive was 0% fragmented and all fine. So later I rebooted into Windows 7, and ran Defraggler, which in turn said the drive was 35% fragmented, so I said why not, and defragmented.
Now the drive has lost almost all of its content, from what I assume was this defragmentation. I ran CHKDSK and it says there are no errors to be found, so I'm alarmed. I might have just lost years of family videos to this defragmentation.
Is there anything I can do? Recuva shows no results, and I'm currently running it's deep scan, but I'm scared this won't work since it seems that the defrag messed up with the tables and such. I'm about to panic here, any help?
