My son dropped his MBP and the hard drive did not do well. I tried to repair the disk via disk utilities and was unable. I installed a new drive in the MBP and loaded OS X onto it, then tried to use SuperDuper to restore the new disk with the old one (now in an external drive enclosure). Superduper wouldn’t read the disk. I downloaded Disk Drill and it sees the disk, but not the image with “Macintosh HD” on it. So I’ve been using the disk drill to extract what I can via Deep Scan. So far, there’s lots coming over, but I don’t really know how to use that data to make the new HD look/act like the defunct one.
Hi Boris, if Deep Scan is the only method working to get your data back, you should restore whatever you can, but it won’t recover your system from the image this way. Deep Scan can’t do that. Most probably, the file system is lost.
