Software :: Read LVM (ext3) Partition In Windows?

Aug 19, 2010

I have a dual boot system and am trying to be able to access all partitions in both OSs. I've tried some windows software that are supposed to be able to read linux partitions, but without luck. Essentially, my linux OS (rhel) is represented as an LVM partition (within the logical volume is ext3). In windows (7), file viewing programs see the partition as "raw". Is there any software that can read LVM in windows?

Fedora :: Mounting An Ext3 Or 4 Partition With Read And Write Access Using Fstab?

Jul 24, 2009

Anybody know how to make an ext3 or 4 partition start up at boot with only the owner and its group having read and write access permissions.I don't want 'others' to have folder access. This is what i have done. / etc/fstab:/dev/sdb5/media/Data ext4 owner 1 2 The folder starts on the boot since it has been allocated a folder as u can see. Next i changed the the ownership and the group ownership of the folder:chown johnny:johnny /media/DataThe problem is that other users can few my partition since 'others' have read access. How do i change that to zero access?

Apr 1, 2011

I have a linux formatted partition. I'm trying to open that partition inside windows 7. And shrink it so that I can have more space. But all the options except delete and help are grayed out. What do I do?

Tried ext2explore but it seems it can only perform a copy of the whole partition.

Ubuntu :: Read Files In Partition From Windows?

Mar 23, 2010

[Sorry if this is misplaced; I just couldn't think which category to put it under.] So yeah, I'm almost exclusively using karmic (yay!), but I still have to use that vista install I have smushed in a corner of my HD from time to time. Now, I installed karmic using the default, latest file system (ext4, I believe it is, right?). Last I remember hearing, that presents a bit of a problem, doesn't it?

General :: Windows 7 Disk Management Utility Doesn't Show Disk With Ext3 Partition

Oct 10, 2010

I have a 2 TB disk in an external SATA dock, formatted with a single ext3 (Linux) partition, which doesn't show up in the Windows 7 Computer Management->Disk Management utility, even as a raw/blank disk. I've verified that there's nothing wrong with the disk by connecting it to my Linux machine and mounting it, and I've verified that the dock is functioning properly by connecting a different FAT32-formatted disk, which mounts flawlessly as expected.I realize that I can't actually read the ext3 partition without additional software (e.g., Ext3IFS), but why doesn't the disk show up at all? Is there some sort of stupid anti-Linux filter built in? Is there any way to force Windows to recognize the disk, so that I can at the very least use direct block access with it?

Background: I want to clone an identical 2 TB disk onto this one. Due to my hardware layout, it's much easier to have the source disk attached to one machine and the destination disk connected to another, and do the clone over the network (the network is not a bottleneck with switched gigabit ethernet), than it is to hook them both up to one machine.(1) I did this once before when both machines were running Linux, but I've since upgraded the destination machine and decided to switch back to Windows for regular desktop use. I've got Cygwin installed, and have verified that the same basic method (dd + nc) will work, but I can't do anything if Windows doesn't even consider the destination disk to exist.I only have one eSATA port on each machine. Opening them up just to do this clone is a rather large annoyance. Also, since this is my backup disk, I'd like to eventually automate the cloning from the active disk to another one that I regularly swap with a third disk that I store off-site.

General :: Cant Read Filesystem Type On Windows Partition?

May 27, 2011

I had installed ubuntu 11.04 on my system along with windows vista. After a few days, i decided to remove ubuntu so i just logged into windows and formatted the ubuntu partition using the windows partitioner, then extended my main c: drive to span the whole disk so that i was left with a single partition with only windows vista on it.Later when trying to restart my system couldn't log back into windows.I kept getting a prompt sayinggrub rescue>After googling around a bit i shrinked and created another partition the disk again and installed ubuntu on it again.still. =/GRUB doesn't show any windows entry.I noticed something strange though that when i tried viewing my partitions using parted i didnt see any filesystem type listed besides my windows partition (/dev/sda3). I doubt that is why GRUB does not show any windows entry.Also i manually tried to boot into windows from the grub prompt using commands...root(hd0,3)chainloader +1bootbut it says 'invalid signature'Did i somehow corrupted my windows partition during resizing and installing/un-installing? Plus i also booted with the windows installation dvd and when i typed bootmgr /fixbootit said something like no valid filesystem found.

Hardware :: Windows Vista Can't Read My Ntfs Partition Created By Mkfs

Oct 16, 2010

I'm dual booting windows vista and ubuntu hardy on a multi-partitioned Dell D630. I created a partition using mkfs -t ntfs. Linux has no trouble reading/writing to it, but every time I boot into windows, chkdsk tries to "fix" the partition, fails, and tells me that the partition is corrupted. Can anybody suggest a way to convince vista that the partition is indeed ok, or else another way to create the partition so that vista can recognize it?

Software :: Gparted: Joining 2 Partition Ext3 Within One Partition (data Saved)?

Dec 11, 2009

I usually repartition a disk by backing up, deleting the partitions, formatting them and repartition. I just did a 200 gig backup (so i am safe) and i want to join 2 (ext3) partition together, sdb1 (data4) and sdb5 (data5) into one big partition. Is there a way to do it without scraping the data in sdb5 (data5). It would save me from rewriting the data back to that new partition (200 gig is time consuming).

Ubuntu :: Write And Read From A Ext3 8GB Usb?

Feb 15, 2011

I have a netbook with Ubuntu 10.10 installed in it,and a Pc with also ubuntu 10.10 in it , but x86_64.

I want to copy some iso files and data from my user home directory on the netbook , to the user home directory of the other pc , using a 8 GB usb formated in ext3 with gparted in my pc.

One iso is a windows 7 one to burn then with K3b , as i need to have windows installed in that box. Also of another iso that i have to burn too (windows 7 recovery disk) , and 3 anti-virus trials for windows.

As the usb is owned by the root (or more properly the mounting point,no?), and i can't use my user to copy data to it i usually do :

Usually , what i use is "sudo nautilus" then go to the place where is the data , copy it , and paste it then in the usb. Then in the other pc i do a chgrp and chown to the iso or file.

But , perhaps this is not the better approach. I have investigated a bit , and i think that i have found a better way , but i have some dudes.

The method is change the owner,group and permissions of the mounting point:

Code:
cd /media
ls
umount /dev/sdb1
sudo mkdir usb

[Code].....

If i do this steps in both computers, with each user,in the netbook i can copy the iso to the usb (as fox can write to the mount point of the usb ), but can the other user in the pc 'mulder' read the iso , so be copied to /home/mulder, and then be able to burn it in k3b with success ?

I suppose that having 766 , it should be able to read it , but would have the own of the file ?

How important is not to only be able to read it , but also own it ?

I suppose if the user ID is the same , wouldn't be any problem ,as each ubuntu would supose that the file is owned by their user.

Perhaps the user name change,but if the ID is the same , the user is the same for ubuntu , not any different, no ?

Ubuntu :: Read Ext3 Former Boot Drive?

Oct 11, 2010

So I upgraded my hard drive and went with a clean Lucid install. But now I want to get files off my old drive. When I re-hooked it back up (now 2 drives in the system), ubuntu refuses to boot. It kind of boots then just hangs. Never gets to the desktop, and the HD lite on my case is constantly flickering (what could it be doing??)

I have it set up correctly in my BIOS so that the new drive is the boot drive, not the old one. The only difference is that the new drive is sata and the old drive is old school pata (ide). I even tried pulling out the old pata drive and hooking it up to a USB adapter I have. Looking at it in the Disk Manager, it shows it as unformatted, and old faithful GParted doesn't even see it!

Now get this: I pulled out my new sata and put back in the old ide drive and guess what, now it wont boot! Grub (probably MBR) is screwed up also! Any ideas how I can read the data from that old drive? Ether by getting my new lucid install to boot with the old drive as a slave in the system, or by hooking it up externally using USB?

Slackware :: Compiling Kernel - Ext4 Is Read As Ext3?

Jan 25, 2010

I compiled a kernel using a previous kernel config after I switched to the ext4 file system. Previously it was using ext3 and the kernel compiled and ran fine. I added support for ext4 to the config but when I went to boot I had a kernel panic. The error was "kernel can't mount vfs on (8,5)". Root is on sda5, I don't know what the 8 is. I started over, using mrproper and made a new config, but got the same error. I created an initrd with the ext4 file system but then the kernel said it couldn't mount root on ext3 because of unique options. (something along those lines) I booted back into the default kernel and saw that it had a similar error right after the bios check, but it loaded fine. I'm wondering why the kernel is saying that the ext4 file system is ext3.

Now when I boot the new T110 server, it displays the following error messages code...

I am running CentOs v5.5 x86-64. If I put the hard disk back into T100, it boots fine. I do not know why it is not working with T110 server.

CentOS 5 :: EXT3-fs: Unable To Read Superblock And Kernel Panic

Aug 15, 2011

I got a CentOS server + KDE from a server (which I had no contact until now), he had 2 HD's one for the system and another for files.

I brought the HD system home to try to make it run on a virual machine (VMware) so I can do some testing before you put in practice.

But already converted the VMware HD to the system, it tries to start but it shows some errors and in a message "kernel panic - not syncing: attemped to kill init"

I think the drivers are correct, has edited the file "/ etc / modprobe.conf" edited these entries equal to another I installed CentOS on VMware.

alias scsi_hostadapter mptbase
alias scsi_hostadapter1 mptspi
ata_piix alias scsi_hostadapter2

Look at the picture attached the full error.

Red Hat / Fedora :: How To Mount EXT3 Partition

Jan 20, 2010

I just made a new storage partition and formatted it as Ext3. Now, this particular partition is shown and can be read at the terminal "fdisk -l". However, unlike in my Mint 7 partition, it does not show in my Fedora 10.

Code: [jun@localhost ~]$ sudo fdisk -l
[sudo] password for jun:
Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xc5e3f820

This partition can also shows be seen in gparted in Fedora. However, even in the "Places" tab, it does not show.

In Puppy Linux and SliTaz I can easily find the partition and read it. What should I do to bring it back in Ubuntu?

General :: Recover Data From Ext3 Partition?

Dec 30, 2009

A HP Netserver LP2000r, with original SCSI controller and HP NetRaid-2M controller, 3x 36GB Ultra3 HDD in RAID5, Debian (sarge/etch), has crashed after 992 days without reboot. From all that I can see, a hardware failure, most likely with the memory. The HP Diagnostic tools cannot find any problem, but everytime I boot into Knoppix, I get between 2minutes and 2 hours of runtime, and then either a kernel oops or just a complete and sudden halt.

Well, the box has earned its money. However, there is some data on the drives that I need to recover (yes, I have beaten myself up properly about not backing up that data, don't even go there !). There are three partitions: sda1 is /, sda2 is swap and sda3 is a LVM volume with 3 logical volumes on it. As far as I can tell, the hardware defect must have been creeping in and has made a total mess of the inodes in all these partitions.

After booting into Knoppix, I can restore the volumes using pvscan, vgscan, lvscan, vgcfgrestore and vgchange. If I try and mount them: mayhem. So I try and check them, using fsck.ext3. All sorts of interesting nonsense, such as a completely empty inode 11 (the first inode) and then obviously from there on all else is pointless. I tried using debugfs, but the information on what to do with it is somewhat spurious.

P.S.: Tomorrow I will go and get myself a 16GB Flash Drive and then hopefully I will be able to dump the partitions one by one onto that drive and transfer the images onto a different computer for analysis and data recovery.

OpenSUSE Install :: Moving XFS To New EXT3 Partition

Feb 5, 2009

I have an 80 GB XFS / partition which is dying. Got some errors like this:

It's not a problem to create another partition, I've got 2 500GB and 2 1TB disks, all EXT3. I've also 2 80 GB disks, 1 for / and 1 for /home. I will remove the 2 80 GB disks but I have a lot of stuff compiled myself. I use openSUSE 11.1. Is it possible to create a 80 GB EXT3 partition on each of the 500 GB hdd, 1 for / and 1 for /home and move the data to it? must it be done with the DD command or can I easily copy everything within a live-cd. The /boot and swap are already on one of the 500GB disks, and there is no bootrecord on the 80 GB disks.
