Ubuntu :: Can't Mount NTFS Ddrescue Image Of Partition?
Jun 14, 2010
I am trying to recover some important data from a 273 gig NTFS partition that was used in windows 7. The laptop was dropped and would not boot the next day. As an external drive I could see 2 smaller partitions (30 gig and 500 meg), but the main partition was RAW and requesting to be formatted... so I came to learn about Knoppix 6.2.1 as my live boot cd and ran ddrescue to recover an almost complete image of the bad partitionddrescue -n /dev/sdc1 /media/sda1/image.img /media/sda1/logfile.logI then ran it one more time:ddrescue -r 1 /dev/sdc1 /media/sda1/image.img /media/sda1/logfile.logthe image was made with 741 errors (amounting to 160 megabytes)So Now I have my partition as image.img which I want to mount.
First I tried
sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop /media/sda1/image.img /mnt/recovered
sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop,force /media/sda1/image.img /mnt/recovered
Storage information: 1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100 1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133 SATA:WD 1000 2nd primary:DVD 2nd secondary:DVD▒RW
Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.
info about lenny setup: 1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap 2.Every partition is XFS except swap.
At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.
Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.
But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.
After many times of trying. I solved the problem by the following way. 1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0). 2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1) After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0). 3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot. windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.
The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.
im looking for a command for mounting an ntfs partition. what i want to do is to put that command to the "after startup applications" option. that's because that ntfs partition is my storage partition, i play steam games [win7 dualboot, thats why that partition is ntfs], download movies etc. in my places menu, its called 190GB Filesystem, and when i click it, it mounts up. but that means i have to click it everytime i boot up, because vuze can't locate the files if it isnt mounted.
by the way : /media/7C1EE4E21EE49684 when its mounted
I have a 3T hitachi hard disk partitioned by Windows 7 and formatted as NTFS that I'm unable to mount under Ubuntu 11.04. The disk is in an external enclosure connected via USB2. Windows 7 has no problems seeing the partition and mounting the drive.
ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/sdd7 ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00000000 size: 1024 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 65535: Invalid argument Record 6 has no FILE magic (0x0) Failed to open inode FILE_Bitmap: Input/output error Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. 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.
I have a windows partition on my drive, and I want to access it without having to mount it first, etc. There are just two partitions, windows and Ubuntu. I am running Ubuntu 10.04.1 so I want to mount it on startup. I saw this article: [URL] but I don't know if what it describes will work as it's almost 2 years old. I'm not adverse to commands, in fact would probably prefer those.
I have a small NTFS partition with a Windows 7 setup.I haven't used it for a long time, but today I booted into Windows 7, which worked fine. However, after a reboot I can no longer boot from the W7 partition (leads to an almost immediate reboot) and what's worse, I cannot mount the partition in Ubuntu either (tried both 9.10 and 10.10).When trying it in Nautilus or manually using mount.ntfs /dev/sda2 /tmp/ntest, I get messages like the following:
[ 123.590083] mount.ntfs: segfault at 7fff3f1e0ff8 ip 00007ffb6bb820a9 sp 00007fff3f1e1000 error 6 in libntfs-3g.so.79.0.0[7ffb6bb5a000+42000] [ 243.869668] mount.ntfs: segfault at 7fff6c180ff0 ip 00007f0caada5ce0 sp 00007fff6c181018 error 6 in libc-2.12.1.so[7f0caad2b000+17a000]
On my tri boot system I have a 750 GB HD that is formatted with NTFS, I would like to share it between windows and linux.How can I mount it at boot up so I can access it in Ubuntu? I want to be able to set it as the default rip drive for Kino and it won't let me!
Currently I have a dual boot system it consists of Fedora 12 and Windows Vista, at this time when I am logged into fedora 12 I can select the windows vista partition in the f12 file manager, I am than prompted for the root password and after entering the password, the drive mounts as read/write with no problem. How can I automate this mounting process so once I login as a standard user the NTFS partition mounts without any input? I would like this to auto mount without prompting for a password or having to double click on the vista partition each time.
Does someone know how to reconfigure this? I have three hard drives.
1. Sata 1TB. It has Windows xp and ubuntu 10.10 on it 2. old 30G drive. It has ubuntu 10.04 on it 3. Old 120G with ubuntu 10.04
I installed the oses on each drive by disconnecting the others. So each drive has a boot record, and I can choose by pressing F11 at boot. All ubuntus can see and mount the NTFS partition except the one I installed last. It's on the 120G drive.
When I click on my Vista partition under "Places" in the Fedora menus, I'm asked to enter the root password for mounting the partition. Is there a way to allow any user to mount this particular partition, to avoid the unnecessary input? The partition is not listed in /etc/fstab (fedora 12 for x86_64).
I want to automatic mount a ntfs partition after start. I work on fstab, everything seems to be ok, but now something strange is happening: sometimes after boot, when I use fdisk, I find all the partitions as sda, sometims they seems to appear as sdb. Of course, if in fstab I have written sda and they are sdb, they will not be aoutomount... I am using fedora 14 I was expecting that allways the partitions to be sda or sdb.
