Hi guys, I'm new to this forum. I hope you can help me out. :D

My Problem is:

I want to regain a filesystem/ partition table/ my data. Please help me. The data is very important to me!
What happened?

I tried to encrypt a 8TB external hard disk with Bitlocker on Windows 10 (stupid I know!). For unknown reasons the encryption failed. At first I still had access to the data. The next time I connected the external drive it showed only 1404 GB as hard disk size and no data is listed.
Drive info:

The following command (smartmontools):
Code:
smartctl -a /dev/sdb


gives me these details about the hard disk (8 TB Seagate):

Code:
smartctl 6.6 2016-05-31 r4324 [x86_64-linux-4.15.0-23-generic] (local build)

But if I use
Code:
parted /dev/sdb print

to check the drive, for some strange reason, only 1404 GB are shown:

Code:
Model: ST8000AS 0002-1NA17Z (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdb: 1404GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos
Disk Flags:

Number  Start   End     Size    Type     File system  Flags
1      1049kB  1404GB  1404GB  primary  ntfs


How can I repair the hard drive/ filesystem/ partition talbe to regain the data?

I have already tried testdisk. But it doesn't recognize more than parted.

Every help is appreciated! Thanks guys!

Your external enclosure appears to be affected by a 32-bit LBA limitation.

    8 TB - 6 TiB = 1.403 TB

http://www.google.com/search?q=8TB+-+6TiB+in+TB

Did you originally partition and format the drive as an internal HDD? Did you swap enclosures? What did you change, if anything?
