Case of logical recovery

Hi Guys

Today I want to share with you a case that I'm working on.
Got a 2,5" WD drive that I could image but with some bad zones (bad sectors). The initial part of the HDD could not be read though.

After the image, I passed several recovery software (R-Studio, UFS and Reclaime) and they all could find the folder tree but the files came out ALL corrupted. I found it very strange, because there were plenty of areas that could be read perfectly. I could accept some corrupted files, but not all....
After several trials and tests, I decided to do a scan with DMDE and voilá, files are being recovered as we speak, and as expected, some corrupt files, but nothing serious.

I wonder why the other softwars could not manage this kind of failure of reconstruction of MFT....

Hello,
Can you please share with your case to check possible problems. Team Viewer or AnyDesk access would be good.
