disk utility – AFPS internal fusion drive corrupted. Looking for help for data recovery

Spread the love

The other day my iMac with MacOS X 10.14 showed a black screen with the no parking sign and reboot did not permit to start the system, it gets stuck on the end of the bar.
In recovery mode the drive is not visible and disk utility shows on the SSD of 128GB unformatted, not the 1.5 TB drive…

I managed to boot on an external drive in 10.12 and 10.13, but the APFS internal drive is still not repairable by disk utility. I tried several data recovery software like Disk Drill, which manages to show my files in the filesystem correctly, but once copied to an external drive, all the files are corrupted and unable to be open.

I wondered if the APFS is repairable.

sudo gpt -r show disk0 gives me this :

          0          1         PMBR
          1          1         Pri GPT header
          2         32         Pri GPT table
         34          6
         40     409600      1  GPT part - C12A7328-F81F-11D2-BA4B-00A0C93EC93B
     409640  236568503      2  GPT part - 7C3457EF-0000-11AA-AA11-00306543ECAC
  236978143         32         Sec GPT table
  236978175          1         Sec GPT header

I am not capable to understand this, even after looking on different similar subjects on stackexchange. Is there anything to do to repair the entries here?

Thank you so much, as important data is concerned.
