    expecting help at high risk


    Sir recently I mean four months back I have bought WD elements external harddisk of size one TB and I have taken backup all my files of size 750GB. While operating on linux the disk has been corrupted and I was unable to access my files on windows and able to access files on linux so I have copied all my data to another external harddisk(segate) of size one TB . Then I have formatted elements harddisk with block size of 4096 bytes and copied all data from segate harddisk to elements. Know when I view the properties of any folder it is showing different file count and size in different file managers like windows explorer,nautilus and dolfin(in linux).I then reformatted the harddisk(elements) with block size of 512 bytes even the problem is not solved.

    I have tried stellar phoniex data recovery software to solve this issue and the scanning of harddisk only is taking 11 hours.

    I have ran chkdsk /f /c in windows8 elevated mode and the process is taking 14 hours.

    As I am in a remote area I am not getting 24 hours power to solve this issue and I am getting maximum 12 hours power without interruption.

    From the past 45 days I am trying to solve this issue even not succeded.

    please notice that I am using segate external disk as temporary disk.All my data of size 750GB is on segate disk but I am unable to view all the content. My goal is I want to store all the data on WD elements USB external harddisk.

    please suggest how to solve this issue with in minimum amount of time.


    Regards,
