Cannot mount windows HDD
Hi, trying to save some data from a laptop HDD, progress so far
/dev/sdb: msdos partitions 1 2
fdisk -l /dev/sdb
/dev/sdb1 63 16932509 8466223+ 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sdb2 * 16932510 156296384 69681937+ 7 HPFS/NTFS/exF
e2fsck 1.41.14 (22-Dec-2010)
fsck.ext2: Superblock invalid, trying backup blocks...
fsck.ext2: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sdb
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
I don't think that's the way forward can anyone please tell me the best approach?
