I have a hard drive that is unmountable. I want to DD the whole thing to another drive, but I hit the 4gb limit, and the drive is over 120gb, even though at most 2/3 of that is used. Is there any way to get past the 4gb limit to recover the data on the drive? Is dd even the best way to do this?
I am trying to recover data from a 120GB hard drive that WIndows can no longer access. Linux can see the drive, but cannot mount it. The drive is NTFS.
I tried the following:
dd if=/dev/hde of=/media/WD_Combo/recovery/img1.iso
where WD_Combe is a fat32 drive - so thats the limit? If I reformat the target drive in ext3 will it be able to copy with no size limit?
Also, if I do copy all the data to the ISO file, how do I get it back to a usable format? I am only used to using ISO's to burn/rip CD's...
