testdisk stuff with adding a recovered reiserfs partition
Hi people .....
using testdisk 4.5 ....
it has found my reiserfs partition again .... it can tell me where it is & I can look at it in testdisk (p - command) ..... but how does one add this newly found partition to an existing partition table ?

Not possible with fdisk, sfdisk or so as they dont let one be accurate enough when creating the partition .

Pleaz help ..... Great to finally have the partition back ... kindof ....

Thanx 4 the help .

I believe that testdisk allows you to recover partitions, not just analyze your disk for missing partitions. Here is something from the test disk documentation web page ( that might be helpful:
If you don't understand how to use TestDisk,

- run "testdisk /log /debug" (make sure to hit the space bar once before each slash),
- select the faulty hard disk using arrow keys then press the ENTER key,
- after TestDisk is finished (Note: you may need to press the ENTER key a couple more times during its processing), choose Search! to restart the analyse.
- just send the file which TestDisk creates, testdisk.log, to
