Recovery of NTFS Data
Was looking some old threads like:-
I've got most of this s/w- testdisk, photorec etc . . .
but - a issue that I've encountered twice - recently,
"it won't work" says the owner . .
turn it on - sit's on the M$ start screen (W6, & W7)
boot a 'nix disk - use Gparted - there is the usual yellow warning
on C: drive - so the 'nix disk can't / won't read it . .
( file table error) ( use checkdsk /f )
but I can't do that - there is no checkdsk - that I've found
- using a cli search of executables - on the stuffed drive.
Gparted won't check / fix it either. .
without a working file table
- I can't use 'nix to recover their data or - the O/S itself . .
most of the commerical s/w that is used to recover, in this situation,
only runs under a working M$ enviroment - so the dead hdd - has to be slaved to this working M$ O/S & the recovery s/w installed
What I'd really like - is to use a recovery based cd - like bartsPE
- which I also have - but none of them are really that good in this < bad table> situation
obviously it can be done - commercial firm do this,
so - how do I get that NTFS data - back - with a stuffed file table ??.
Might be possible for ranish to fix that. Get ultimate boot cd and test.
I'd try to clone it if the data is real important. If the drive can work and just some issue with the format then use dd command off to some file.
Barts has unstoppable copier that might work.
You should be able to run chkdsk using a Windows Vista/7 install DVD.
- the rescue disk certainly doesn't have it.
But that means copying to another hdd, I would think.
dir only lists the content of the current directory. Have you actually tried to launch chkdsk?
YEP - the error is 'file not found'
anyway - I'm currently working thru a pile of commercial s/w,
to see which ones are any good . . . . ..
