I want to implement a second Harddisk into my Slackware 10.2 System. This Harddisk was used in a XP System before.
Before I convert the filesystem into ext2, I want to backup some files.
Ok, the Harddisk has 2 ntfs partitions. The important files are on the second one.
The Harddisk ist connected as the primary device at the 2nd controller.
The command: mount -t ntfs /dev/hdc1 /mnt is working fine.
But when I want to mount the second one with mount -t ntfs /dev/hdc2 /mnt (or to any other directory) I get the following message:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc2,
missing codepage or other error
(aren't you trying to mount an extended partition,
instead of some logical partition inside?)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
Output of dmsg | tail: attempt to access beyond end of device
16:02: rw=0, want=3145732, limit=1
NTFS: Could not read $Mft record 0
