Recovering Data From NTFS Partition
A 'Western Digital' 120gb drive of mine has recently become cluttered with errors (the entire drive is NTFS). For some reason, Windows cannot boot while it is plugged directly into the computer, and cannot read from it when it is connected via USB 2.0. Luckily, linux (i'm Using Ubuntu Live) can read it through the USB. Unfortunately, although I have successfully copied most of the things I need from the drive using Ubuntu, something has gone terribly wrong.
A folder which contained some other folders, some of which in turn contained pictures, has disspeared. More specifically, the name of the folder is still a file, but under properties it is of type "Unknown Type" and the folder icon has been replaced by a footprint or a hand print or something like that (it's green).
So my question is; is there some way to recover these lost pictures from an NTFS partition through linux?
Any help is greatly appreciated, because i'm stumped! Thanks in advanced.
