Recently my laptop broke down and wont start up. I'm currently trying to recover my files to my mac with an IDE to USB cable. It recognized my windows partition fine and I was able to get all my files off of that, but the majority of my stuff is on the ext4 partition that I have on it. Does anyone know how to access the ubuntu partition of this hard drive from my mac?
I am dual booting OpenSUSE and Windows 7 Pro x64. Each OS is installed on a separate 1Tb hard drive. One question that I have tried to Google for a solution with no success is, how do you access ext4 from Windows? Shortly after I installed OpenSUSE, my OpenSUSE hard drive "vanished" from Windows 7. aturally, I can access all my hard drives from OpenSUSE, which does support the NTFS. I am quite sure that I am not the only person who has this problem as I know that dual booting Linux and Windows is quite common.
After several times install & reinstall,i got a stable dual boot vista / ubuntu 10.10.,but i can't access or even see my windows partition from ubuntu,i installed my dual boot with wubu this time,in previous installation when i didn't use wubi , i didn't have such a problem & windows partition with all my files in it (windows files,media ,etc,) was easily accessible from "places" on ubuntu . I already disabled windows firewall & other security options but nothing changed
I would like to know if there is a way that I can access my files on the Windows partition using Linux because the Linux partition does not have enough space to house all the files on the Windows partition.
I have partioned my harddrive when I installed ubuntu 10.10 Desktop edition, 32-bit. But, after I installed it I can no longer access the Windows partition. I have never played with Linux OS before. I will provide a screen-shot of the partition. [URL]
I had 5.4 machine. Upgraded to 5.5 today via yum upgrade. All went fine. Rebooted. Wanted to convert root partition to ext4 (I have three partitions: /boot, / and swap). All of them on software RAID 1 (root is /dev/md2). I did the following for converting
yum install e4fsprogs tune2fs -O extents,uninit_bg,dir_index /dev/md2 nano /etc/fstab # I indicated here that my /dev/md2 is of ext4
I have already done the installation process following the guide on Ubuntu's site, got everything up and running but the partition that I made in the installer was too small. I was then directed by a friend (a slightly less inexperienced newbie) to modify this through Easeus Partition Manager. I shrunk the Windows 7 partition to only the space that was in use, giving the newly unallocated space to the Ubuntu partition. Set the changes and rebooted the computer, then got the message "unknown filesystem, grub rescue". Now have no idea what to do with this. What happened??
I've been scouring the forums for something helpful but I can't find anything that is a comparable circumstance.I can still access Ubuntu through my flashdrive.
I'm installing Windows to update my BIOS. I've removed a previous partition but I can't merge free partition to my original partition containing data. How to solve this problem? I don't want to format the ext4 partition.
I was using gparted to resize my /var partition, which is supposed to be an ext4 partition, and during the beginning stages of the resize/move procedure I cancelled out of the process despite the warning this might be bad. The process was in the middle of the "read" stage so I figured nothing can go wrong during a read, but now I cannot access this partition mount wise. Is there anyway to repair this?
I am currently running a dual boot machine with Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows Vista.Is there any way I can delete the Linux partition and Grub boot loader without affecting the Windows partition at all?I would also like to be able to repartition all of the space that was previously occupied by Linux.
I didn't know a resize operation on a 750 GB disk was going to take 40+ hours, and I was biting my nails the whole time, until the power went out when "only" 8 hours where left.I can still mount the partition, and many of the files are still there, but some files show as '? ? ? ? ? filename.ext' with ls -l.If I try to go inside such a directory: Input/output error.
is there a way of sharing an ext3/ext4 formatted partition on an external USB drive between different users (uids) on different Linux machines without creating a group for this purpose, setting the group ownership of the partition to this group and adding each respective user to the group on every machine?This would mean that I need to have root privileges on every machine... which I may not have in some cases.I'm using the partition to store the code I'm developing on Linux and I would like the option to be safe... if possible.I could use a vfat partition but then I have no control of the rw rights + I cannot develop directly in the dir: I would always have to tar.gz the directory, extract, work, tar.gz, copy to the external drive.
I just ruined my /ntfs partition. I used the mkfs command and stopped it by ^C immidiately, but it was too late. mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1
Is there a way to recover NTFS partition now ? The partition </dev/sdb1> was 'ntfs' and mkfs.ext4 did not check if it was a ext4 or give any pre-check warning, just went ahead with making the ext4 fs on a ntfs partition.
In an attempt to shrink my Data partition on my 500GB drive I had succeded in shrinking it but I think I have broken the partition table as now it refuses to mount. When trying to mount I get this error mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda2 I have done some searching around but most fixes haven't worked because they are based on ext2/3 File systems and this partition is ext4. Using Ubuntu 10.04 x64.
I just installed ubuntu via the windows executable and I couldn't mount my NTFS partition. I found this a little odd and I checked fdisk and it seems to think I don't have an ext4 partition as my entire internal HD is displayed as NTFS.
Here's the fdisk output:
When i try to mount the NTFS partition /dev/sda2 i get the following output:
I can't make heads or tails out of this. Anyone know what's going on here?
Windows recognizes that 30GB were taken from the NTFS partition for my linux install. It reads the max partition size as 465GB. fstab reports the NTFS partition size as 488GB.
I have a desktop, a cellphone. I do NOT HAVE a disk drive, a USB stick or anything of the sort.
The desktop has two operating systems on a single hard drive: Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7. I need to get internet access in Windows 7.
The cellphone is a Galaxy S Vibrant, and is tethered so that I can connect to the internet through it. In Ubuntu, the tether is automatically supported. I just shove a USB cable between the cellphone and the phone and I've got internet in Linux. But in Windows, the tether needs drivers. I can't connect to my phone in Windows without them.
So, I pretty much have to put the installer in Windows from Linux, so I can run it, have internet in Windows and not get fired tomorrow.
I have $0, so picking up (or borrowing) something I can use to talk between the two computers is not an option.
But in Ubuntu, I do not see my Windows partition. It's not in media and it's not in mnt.
What can I do to get a damn file over to Windows?
Note in bold and italic to show that it's important: NTFS-Config only shows my Ubuntu drive, it seems.
I have an external 320gb Hard drive. My plan was to have 250gb for My Documents of mainly music, films and word documents. And 50gb set aside for ubuntu, in a separate partition.To do this I need to partition the 50gb partition as ext4? then add a swap file of how big? Do i even need a swap space if I have 4gb of physical RAM?
I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 installed on the same harddrive. I'm using grub to boot both. I would like to deny access to the windows partitions, but allow access to removable drives and shared drives.
I have windows machine and installed ubuntu in one of my partition, So i was able to select any of these OS's while booting the machine, But recently I've formatted Windows partition after this am unable to reach this ubuntu. i.e., While booting the machine no options are listing out it directly went to Windows OS.
I can't access (read/write) to my Windows partition from PCManFM on LXDE. On Gnome it is usually on the left side and you have to click on it and it mounts. I want to do the same for PCManFM. When I installed Debian with "Standard system utilities" it did work like it did on Gnome.
