How did you format the drive? What was the file system of the previous partition? Did you write something on the new partition?

Looks like R-Studio cannot find the previous NTFS partition. Because D:, as I understand, is the new one.
Can you find something workable in RAW files?

Unfortunately, looks like no other way than from the RAW section. All file paths and names, time stamps, etc. will be lost.
It's strange, BTW. Usually there're always some remnants of the previous partition, but not in your case.

First off, you shouldn't be scanning the D: you should scan the entire physical drive (unless you're certain that nothing was changed in the partitioning structure). If you're seeing the full file structure but all files are corrupt it could be that your partition starting offset is off and it's looking in all the wrong places for the data.

Also did you scan to the very end? In the middle of a partition is where a lot of metadata is stored that R-Studio used to rebuild the structures.

That's right! I didn't notice that only the D: partition was scanned. Sure, you need to scan the entire SAMSUNG disk!
