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?

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?

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.

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.

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.

Have been using mint 11 for past few weeks with no problem but failed to boot correctly. menu appeared giving options for booting but kept returning to this menu without going further so I opted to go for safe booting option, after loading a few files it asked for password but kept giving me the message incorrect password so I could get no further. Fortunately I had a cop of clonezilla and was able to restore a backup from a second hard drive but would be grateful for any observations anyone would like to make about this (in case it happens again)

Software :: Tool To Back Up And Restore An NTFS Partition With Bad Sectors?

Jan 27, 2010

I've been using Knoppix "Live CD" 6.2 and partimage 0.6.7 to back up and restore my Microsoft Windows XP system volumes on various computers. However, partimage seems to be unwilling to back up one of these NTFS volumes which has bad sectors, some unreadable data. It hits that and stops. But this appears to happen at the same place when I have already used Windows to find and mark and, I assume, remove from use, the bad sectors. Hmm. I thought they'd be ignored. It appears I thought wrong.

If so, which of several other Linux-based or other partition backup tools may be suitable for the task - to ignore or tolerate bad sectors? The main goal is to be able to update the volume subsequently in a way that may be a terrible mistake, and in that case to restore the previous version. Sometime not too far in the future, I suppose I have to think about replacing the disk.

Software :: Unable To Restore A Backup Image To Drive Using Clonezilla?

Apr 23, 2011

I used Clonezilla an older version not the latest to backup an entire NTFS Windows XP drive to DVD last year. I have a series of three (3) of these DVD's but now cannot restore the backup image back to the same PC. The problem is that when booting with Clonezilla I don't have an option to restore from a CD or DVD drive since the computer comes with two working CD/DVD drives that are detected by the BIOS when the POST is displayed. I used one of these drives to boot with Clonezilla and the other one containing the backup image Disk 1 of Disk 3. Clonezilla only detects the two hard drives and a USB drive which is removable. Is there a bug in the restore process because it allowed me to backup the entire image of the hard drive onto a DVD last year but this time around there are no CD or DVD drive options available to choose other then the CD drive Clonezilla was used to boot up.

General :: Mount Point For Backup Drive - Partition To Backup The Important Files On My Main HDD

May 21, 2011

I'm just setting up a partition on a seperate HDD in my system. I plan to use the partition to backup the important files on my main HDD (to guard against HD crash).

The question I have is about where would be the typical location to auto mount this partition? Which would it be normal to go for:

1. /backup/
2. /media/backup/
3. /mnt/backup/
4. /home/chris/backup/

Debian :: Unable To Access Ntfs Partition?

May 21, 2010

I recently formated my harddrive and instead of theld fat32 partition for windows partition I used ntfs. I am mounting this partition in /media/windows in debian linux. But it shows a cross (x) symbol above the folder and says I don't have the permission to access it. the permission on the folder is (drwx_ _ _ _ _ _ ) and it is owned by root. So I changed it to my user name -- sid by doing the followingsudo chown -R sid:sid /media/windowsHere are my questions1) Now it allows me to access the folders but all the files like pdf or photos have a cross on right top corner and it says access denied. Is this because of ntfs since with fat32 I didn't have this problem.

2) Also I have a /data (ext4) partiton which is a common partition for datafiles between Ubuntu and Debian. It has the permission -- drwxr_xr_x . I am trying to write to this partition and save files but it doesnot allow me to do it. do I have to make chmod 777 to do that?3) How do I make sure that both windows and /data partition are writable right from the beginning at the boot time.

General :: Best Way To Backup And Restore / Home Directory And Reinstall Kubuntu

Dec 3, 2009

So I've finally given up on saving my kubuntu install that wont boot. I've searched, and looked, but couldn't find a thing.My delema now is to make sure that I:

a) get all of the user data safely packed up onto my external USB drive. I believe it's all in the home directory. I'm not sure about getting hidden files though...

b) get the new install to go smoothly, and not mess up grub or the parralell XP install on the same hard drive.

c) get the user data back on the computer and recreate the user structure. Permissions were messed up already, so setting those up again is not an issue.

So, I've been poking around, and this is how I think things should go:

a) tar cvpjf backup.tar.bz2 /home to get my home directory backed up. Not exactly sure how to get from here to my external hd, but I'm sure I can figure it out

b) just run a live cd of kubuntu, delete the old partitions, and reinstall over them?

c) unzip the tar into by /home directory.

That's all I've been able to find so far. How do I set up the users? Will they show up as soon as I untar? Will the resinstall play nice with my windows install? Will I get all the hidden files too? Is there anything I'm missing?

General :: Full System Backup From Ext To NTFS Disk

Oct 11, 2010

I wonder if I can backup files from an ext partition to a ntfs partition and keeping all kind of metadata and file infos?!

With other words:

Can I backup a full linux system from a ext file system to a external ntfs partitioned disk using rsync -a (keeping all file permissions)?

Is something getting lost of a file (like permissions or anything... flags...) when copied / rsynced from ext to ntfs?

The thing is, that when I restore the stuff back from ntfs to ext, can I still use my system properly?

And can I backup files like photos from ext to ntfs without loosing any meta data?

Or asked more in general: What is the difference of a file on a ext partition compared to the same file on a ntfs partition?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Use NTFS Partition In Windows 7 64 Bits And GPT Secondary Table Moved

May 22, 2010

I have a 6TB external eSata bay (Lacie BigQuadra). I made a GPT table with only one big ext4 partition. All was ok. I resized the ext4 partition and I created a 1TB NTFS partition. I can use it on Kubuntu but Windows 7 tell me the partition is not formated. When I go back to Kubuntu, parted tell me that the secondary GPT table is not at the end of the disk and tell me it's probably an other OS that thinks the disk is smaller that its real size. It seems Windows 7 thinks the disk size is 2 TB (and modify automaticaly the GPT table and create a secondary GPT table on the middle of the disk).

What can I do to make my NTFS partition visible in Windows 7? What can I do to prevent Windows 7 to move the secondary partition table on the middle of the disk and to modify the primary GPT table ?
