Hardware :: Ran Mkfs.vfat Over Top Ntfs Partition - Any Way To Restore Ntfs Partition Info?

Oct 12, 2010

I was attempting to format a flash drive, and well, used the wrong sdX device. I've run DiskInternals Partition Recovery tool, and all my files are still there (you have to pay $139 to have it restore the files). Is there any way using tools in linux to restore the ntfs partition/files? It was a single disk with the partition taking the entire drive. I've tried mounting it with the -t option, but it says invalid ntfs signature. Man, two lessons the hard way, make sure you backup (duh) and be careful what you type as root.

Software :: Changing An NTFS UUID - Restore An NTFS Partition From A Backup?

Dec 25, 2010

I am trying to restore an NTFS partition from a backup and I need the new drive to have the old (dead) drive's UUID (which I recorded).I really really really cannot use the option of changing fstab to mount using a new UUID, for this case I need the old UUID that existed on the other drive.Is there some ntfs equivalent of tune2fs that'll let me change the UUID on an ntfs partition?

General :: Cannot Restore Ntfs Partition

Jul 26, 2011

On my computer on the first disk /dev/sda was installed win2k system bootable with
native win2k bootloader. I created imges of that partition using Ghost4linux na Clonezilla. Images were placed on the second computer using sshfs. For all this tasks i used PartedImage LiveCD.

I removed old partition and created a new ntfs partition on the same disk. When I used GParted or native Win2k partitioner the partition I get was smaller: the difference is a few bytes. Finally I used the Linux fdisk. Now the size was OK, but after restoration win2k was unbootable: I tried to recover the win2k but it was even impossible to locate a system on the partition. So I tried to move all the partition at the very beginning of the disk. Now at least I was able to mount (under Linux) the partition. But again win2k was unbootable and unrecoverable.

It seems for me that the partition is missplaced. According to Ghost4Linux the partition begins with an offset 0x56. I suspect that it should be rather 0x80.

In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details.

General :: Restore NTFS Partition After Using Dd?

Jun 17, 2011

I recently tried to make a backup of an ntfs partition using dd.For example.. "sudo dd if=/dev/sda2 of=/dev/sda1" which made a copy of one partition to another, not realizing that it would wipe the ntfs filesystem and image across the linux partition. Is there anyway i can undo this to get back all the data which was on the ntfs drive? Cfdisk still sees the partition as NTFS. Have also tried photorec to try to retrieve the data but to no avail.

General :: Resize A NTFS Partition In A Disk?

Feb 1, 2010

I need to resize a NTFS partition in a disk for which I have an image (dumped with dd).

I mounted it through the loop device on linux:

# losetup -o 32256 /dev/loop0 disk.img # I got the offset from looking at fdisk's output
# mount /tmp/t /dev/loop0
# ls /tmp/t
[content of NTFS partition shows correctly]
# umount /tmp/t
# gparted /dev/loop0

gparted shows me the disk correctly; it just contains one large NTFS partition I want to shrink.

I have it had it running for one hour now.

Question: will this work? There is lots of disk access but the timestamp and size of the underlying file disk.img remain unchanged.

General :: Move /home To Ntfs Partition?

Sep 5, 2010

There was a Toshiba Satellite notebook with XP I decided to install Fedora 13 in dual boot mode.So, I booted with Gparted and shrunk the ndows XP partition to just 24 GB.Then I set up partitions for Linux this way/boot, ext4 256 MB/, ext4 16 GB/home, ntfs 176 GBswap, 8 GBI intentionally left about 8 GB left just in caseThen I proceeded to install Fedora 13.I used the customized mode to use the already set up partitions and keep Windows XP.At the moment of setting the mounting points, fine with /boot, / and swap. But Anaconda wouldn't accept mounting point for /home.I went on anyway.Fedora got set up and run moothly.However, /home resided in / with only 10 GB left.And the /home partition could be seen as a separate disk with its 176 GB.This is /etc/fstab:

# /etc/fstab
# Created by anaconda on Sun Sep 5 05:46:26 2010

General :: NTFS Partition - Caution With Cfdisk

Jun 4, 2010

My largest partition is currently NTFS, which I thought I could use as my Linux home directory. But when mounted to /home, "useradd -m" refuses to add new user directories. So I want to keep 10GB of that partition for Win/Linux documents and such, and use the other 42 GB for Linux users.

My question is rather easy for most of you: using cfdisk, can I just delete that partition, add two new partitions, then write the table to disk? Right now there's no data on that partition but writing the partition table seems risky--I don't want to mess with any of the other partitions (even though I can just reinstall Linux).

General :: Fat32 Vs NTFS For Shared Partition

Jun 19, 2010

I dual boot, in the process of installing Windows 7 & Fedora 13 on a new drive. Back in the day when it was risky for the newbie to read/write NTFS, I created a "shared" FAT32 partition. Even though the later Fedoras could read/write NTFS fresh out of the box, I have kept the "shared" partition for my important files (email, documents, digital camera pics).

Now that I'm installing Win7 and Fedora 13 on a new hard drive and I'm partitioning my disk, I'm scratching my head trying to decide how I should format this partition. I was considering the FAT32 again, but I'd like 50GB, not just 32. At the same time, I'm thinking of making the size sacrifice because, and maybe this is just carryover from the olden days and groundless, I have an irrational worry about using NTFS for my most important files.Maybe someone could assuage my fears. Is it just as safe, at this point, for files to be on a NTFS partition and run under Fedora as they are under FAT32?

General :: Why Ntfs Partition Need That Window Xp Shut Down Properly

May 9, 2009

I just wounder why a ntfs partition need that my window xp shut down properly before i can mount it on my new Debian install.What happen it that when scanning window xp for virus i got a blue screen and window just crash repeatedly , so i tough i could just mount that partition with ntfs-3g, find the virus witch i identify to be in c:/window and delete it, but my ntfs partition would not mount and the boot message said something like (ntfs partition is still in use). Long story short, i finally managed to get a full window xp boot followed by a clean shut down, then my ntfs partition mounted and i was able to delete that virus.I could mount that partition with ntfs ro option in fstab, but not with ntfs-3g rw until i got a clean xp shutdown.

General :: Permissions Locked To Read Only On NTFS Partition

Jul 4, 2011

I'm pretty new to Linux. Though I've used it for a little bit, I barely know any shell commands. I recently migrated from Mint to Fedora. Installation went fine and I thought I was doing great until I tried to copy something onto one of my ntfs partitions (I got them automounted through changing fstab). Now I can't change the permissions with sudo chmod... it says I can, but nothing changes. And, while the folders are listed as allowing rw for the user group I set up, I can't actually change anything. I'm guessing I've done something wrong with my fstab file.

My fstab file is:


I should probably note that I'm using NVIDIA fake RAID 0, which is why my device locations are all /dev/mapper/nvidia_fcficeibp#

The command I have tried to change permissions is:

General :: Unable To Restore Backup On NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

I used Ping Linux 8 months ago to create a ghost-like image of my primary partition. (Windows 7 on NTFS) The image is on the second partition of my hard drive (Western Digital 250 gig). I need to restore now, but Ping is unable to mount the volume. In fact, it will not mount any volume or perform any new backup. I made sure nothing has changed in Bios options since I created the backup. Does this imply that is not the appropriate tool to work on NTFS system?

General :: Scripting Copying Files From A NTFS Partition?

Jan 22, 2010

I record my lectures at school using my mobile phone then send them over wifi to my laptop and use a program to do volume correction all in windows. However, I want a exact copy of that folder in my home folder on my ubuntu install on a separate partition.I've been manually copying them over so far but I want to make a script that I can run to copy all new files over. I know a little bit about scripting, mounting the drive and actually copying files is easy, its figuring out how to determine new files and copy only those that I don't know how to do.
