Here's my situation :
I had a samsung 1TB HDD that I used for storing data, on an xp machine, so it was formated as NTFS.
I moved this HDD to another machine and installed Freenas on it, and the installation worked fine (fyi, I used the tutorial posted here : http://www.maximumpc.com/article/fea..._source_server
During the installtion, Freenas installed it's system files to a new small UFS partion.
After finishing the setup, I realised that I had changed the file system of the other partion (980gb, previously NFTS) to UFS and now I don'T know how to go back. I had about 400gb of data on it and I'm pretty sure it's still there, but don't know how to get it back.
I tried messing around with recovery software such as R-Studio, and I was able to see some of my files so I know they're still there.
After quite a bit of googling around, the only solution I seem to find is using gparted which is a tool to modify partions file system without loosing data, but I'm afraid to use it.
So is there a way to browse NTFS data on a UFS partition and convert it so FreeNas can see my files ? Or is there a way to put the partition back to NTFS so I can back up my data to another drive before I lose something valuable ?
thank you for your suport,
