mount old linux disk to new Linux
I have an old disk and trying to attach to the upgraded linux version hoping to see my old data. But I am not very successful.
What is the normal procedure to make the data from old linux to be visible to new Linux system?
- steps I took.
# fdisk -l /dev/sdc
Disk /dev/sdc: 160.0 GB, 160000000000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19452 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdc1 * 1 19452 156248158+ 83 Linux
After creating doing
# mkdir -p /mnt/sdc1
and modifying /etc/fstab file to have the line
/dev/sdc1 /mnt/sdc1 ext3 defaults 1 2
# mount -a
But I got the error as following:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1,
or too many mounted file systems
Any idea to go futher from here? Thanks.
