Ubuntu :: Restore Data From Sata Hd Partition

Sep 4, 2010

Ive installed ubuntu for the first time today, i have a hdd of 500gb, that had 65gb occupied with music, movies and games.

What i did during installation:

it asked me where to install it, so i created a new partition of 100gb ext4 type, to install it there, and i was going to leave the rest for the data, but it wont let me do it, so i went back and selected the "exchange type swap linux 0x82 type" for the 400gb partition.

Then installed it, and now i cant find my data, and i have only 100gb of space in the hd, if i use the "disc utility" i can see the other 400gb, and change partition type, but i dont want to lose my data..

Hardware :: Restore Partition Table Or Recover Data?

Mar 27, 2009

I was putting the cover back on my Antec p180b, and I guess it got stuck and gave it a hard bump (pretty much broke the cover). As a result, one of my hard drives, a Seagate Barracuda ST3750640AS, got messed up or something. All the other hard drives are fine. It's in an LVM with another hard drive, so now I can't boot up into my computer. So I booted into the installation CD:


# find /dev/sd[a-c][1-3]


This led me to believe the partition was messed up. So I ran cfdisk, and it said something about a missing partition table or something. Additionally, instead of showing the single partition on it, it displays, from my recollection, Pri*Log. To my knowledge, this is the only problem with the hard drive. So now I need to either somehow create or restore the partition table without overwriting the data. Or get a new hard drive, and some how recover the data (LVM, partitions, and all).

Debian :: Restore User Directory After Trying To Mount A SATA Drive

Jan 21, 2011

This is on Debian Lenny 5.0.7 with a LXDE desktop. Using Root Terminal I have just been trying to mount a SATA drive NTFS file system using the command: mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /dev/

unfortunately the /sdb1 should of been 'sdc1', I think, and what's happened is that my username and files have been moved somewhere else. PCMan File manager has ceased to work and open applications have ceased to be able to save files.

How do I discover where they went, and how do I restore them back to the original place of debian:/home/username/ ?

I'm about 8 hours in to learning Linux/Debian and desperately trying leave behind about 15 years of Windows use for something better. I'm used to troubleshooting electronics/hardware/all manner of things but the syntax here is, at the moment, a slippery slope.

General :: Extended Sata Partition Shrunk At 15 Partition Limit - How To Re-enlarge

Jun 2, 2010

extended sata partition shrunk at 15 partition limit, how to re-enlarge i hit the 15 partition limit, forgetting it now exists for sata drives, thinking i would add more. upon creation of the 15th, it squished the end of the extended partition to meet the last logical partition, leaving a large unallocated portion after the extended partition, which seemingly nothing can be done with, just sat being wasted space. i have since deleted a few of those partitions, but so far have still failed to find a way to recoup the unallocated space back into the extended partition.


if necessary, i'll do it the painful long winded way of backing up and starting the extended partition again from scratch, but i really rather wouldnt have to do that. i'm sure there must be a way of telling the extended partition to once again reach the end of the drive.

Ubuntu :: SATA II / Error "ata4: Limiting SATA Link Speed To 1.5 Gbps" - Allowing The SSD To Run At SATA II Speeds?

May 1, 2011

I keep getting this error in my log viewer every 2 seconds: Code: ata4: limiting SATA link speed to 1.5 Gbps I have a dual boot SSD and I have run many SMART tests in windows and linux, (using smartmon tools and the disk utility) and the reports are all 100% healthy..... My research shows that this error represents one of the following:

1. Problem with SATA controller
2. Changing BIOS to allow SATA
3. Changing SATA mode to PATA or AHCI
4. Replacing the SATA cable
5. Allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds, i.e. 3 Gbps

- Does anyone know how to try number 5, i.e. allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds? I am lost here and this problem has caused my machine to crash twice when watching a movie in linux/ ubuntu. (It is worth noting that the crashes have only occurred in linux and I have never had an issue in windows, so it does seem to be a linux setting somewhere, hence why I think it is a "allowing SATA II to run at correct speeds issue")

Ubuntu :: How To Restore Data From RAID1

Dec 23, 2010

I have two disks from a old computer (now it doesn't exist anymore). They were in raid 1 with this configuration:

| disk 1 | disk 2
| OS
| |
| raid 1 | raid 1
| |

There is probably an error in one of the two disks, however raid 1 should allow we to restore data. So now I can physically mount this disks on a machine with ubuntu (ubuntu is on another disk). My question is: how can I restore data from disks? I think that using mdadm is not enough.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: SATA Disc SMART Data Shows New Drive Faulty Centos5.4?

Nov 26, 2009

I have a new system using an Intel DG451D main board. I have been trying to get a RAID 1 mirror set working as the main drive in this system and for some reason, my SATA drives - three of them all new have had their SMART data changed to show the drives as failing and in need of replacement. Eventually the drive reports failure to the degree that the BIOS no longer recognises it. When loading the Centos os I was getting differing results because of this issue. I am not sure if this is a hardware issue even - I know that the drives were all very much OK and brand new - no good now! Just putting a feeler out to see if anyone has had a similar issue or to see if anyone knows of any possible known causes for this?

Failing any explanation, can anyone suggest a good desktop style Main Board that supports RAID well for Centos 5.4? I plan to sue this as a small server system so graphics etc are not important here.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Partition Sata Disk

Nov 26, 2010

I'm trying to install 10.10 on a sata disk. In terminal, dmesg recognizes the disk at /dev/sda. The installer recognizes it as well, but the partition area is blank and the option are greyed out. How can I go on? BTW, on the disk currently Fedora 14 is (fresh) installed and working fine, but a software install script is written specifically for Ubuntu. That's why I need to change to Ubuntu and it's no hardware problem.

The first hard drive had a boot partition along with an LVM partition, the other two hard drives were also LVM.From what I remember I have to mount all three at once for LVM to function correctly but I don't have available hardware (particularly a motherboard that can mount all old IDE).Can I use a USB<->IDE converter to image the disks, and then mount them?What Linux distro should I set up to recover the data?ow do I know what version of LVM is needed?

Software :: Webalizer: Unable To Restore Run Data (10)

I'm using Webmin, and Webalizer plugin. Days ago, webalizer works fine. But starting from yesterday, Webalizer no longer generate reports. And when I try to generate report manually using webmin, I get this message: Code: Running Webalizer to generate report from [URL]..

.. Webalizer failed! See the output above for details. Because I didn't get any details on that message, I run webalizer manually using command:

Code: # webalizer -n mydomain.com And as result, I got this message:

Code: # webalizer -n mydomain.com Error: Unable to restore run data (10) I have few domains in this machine, and for all domains I got the same result. Anyone has any idea(s) about what happened and how to cure it? Few days ago I think I tried to install Perl-Small-XML using CPAN and failed. And I installed awstats too. Don't know whether it's related or not.

Hardware :: Cannot See 2nd SATA Internal HDD After Partition In OS

Aug 27, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS just installed on my IDE 41Gb HDD. After installation, I plugged in a SATA 320 Gb HDD. I ran gparted, I partitioned the HDD in 3. It was recognized as sda1... I could see the 3 partitions in my "Places" renamed as I wanted, could see my IDE HDD and my external 1TB HDD. But after one day, computer was not turned off, I come back to it and... couldn't see what I previously had done (my 3 partitions on SATA just vanished?). I reset the PC and go in BIOS - nothing there. Turn off PC, reboot>BIOS> HDD SATA 2 recognized. Press F10 save, Ubuntu is up, but still no SATA hard disk. I go to gparted... no option with SATA. What can I do to have it back? I didn't mount anything since during partition I didn't have this option. This is what shows up now: (the 41 Gb HDD is now sda, before was sdb - I guess because it is smaller?)

OpenSUSE :: Restore Evolution Data From A Previous Version?

Aug 25, 2010

This is to request assistance or information as to why the evolution application will not accept the evolution-backup-tar.gz file from a previous version.

Situation: I upgraded by way of a fresh install from openSuSE 11.2 to 11.3 (GNOME desktop).
Before upgrading, I produced the above mentioned backup file so that I could import all the mail, addresses etc. into the new application.

Result: it does not work. The process starts up seemingly normal but then simply sits there forever with the message "evolution shuts down" - but it does'nt. I have to kill it to stop it.

I am looking forward to a resolution since it would be a real pity if I lost the mail history.

Slackware :: SATA Requires 'active' Partition?

May 2, 2010

This thread is not so much looking for a 'solution' as it is looking for some 'reason why', as I now have it working.I have just inherited a Gateway 509GE - P4 3.0GHZ / 1GB RAM / 200GB SATA WD2000JD HD. It is circa 2005 hardware. The previous owner had tried to install Mandriva after windows began to choke on accumulated garbage, then tried to revert to XP, both of which appeared to install but neither would boot. He decided to just get a new box and gave me this one.I ran Memtest86 and found a bad DIMM and replaced it.

I repartitioned and formatted, a single ext4 root partition plus 2GB for swap. I completely removed existing partitions including the hidden M$ restore partition and checked disk - all using Gparted Live CD.I put a full Slackware 13 on it, installed with LILO to MBR, rebooted... nothing... "No bootable device found".I booted to install CD and played with Gparted Live CD and everything was there and LILO configured correctly...I tried several times and looked at MBR sector directly - all OK as far as I could tell.

Long story short - as far as I can tell after trying a few things, I finally set the 'active' flag on the extended partition (sda1) and it now boots.But Linux does not care whether a partition is active and I have several boxes - including another with SATA drive that do not have any 'active' partitions. So I conclude this must be a BIOS thing looking for an active partition, but see nothing settable in the BIOS config (in fact very little useful in this machine's BIOS config).Anyway, it is now working but I would like to solicit any useful comments from others. Is it a Gateway thing? (This is my only Gateway box). Is it an SATA thing? Anyone else had to set a Linux partition active to boot

CentOS 5 :: Chainloading 2nd Sata Drive Partition 5?

Mar 5, 2011

I am still fighting with getting the right configuration in my grub file to chainload the second linux OS on my computer.

2 hard drives (sata)
2 OS's (CentOS,Ubuntu)

CentOS is in and running fine. It owns the MBR and was in place before I added the Ubuntu OS. Ubuntu was added to the free space of the second hard drive in partition 5 and its grub was installed there. So I thought this would work for a grub stanza.

title Ubuntu (10.10)

Ubuntu Security :: Restore The Original Image File That Have Hidden Data In With Steghide

Jan 27, 2011

i'm wondering if it's possible to restore the original image file that you have hidden data in with steghide. The basic Idea is you have a photo using gpg sign it and then embed the signature. then remove the signature at a later time and check it with the signature. I hope another "inverse" algorithm doesn't need to be written to undo the first (if a "inverse algorithm is possible). This assume you already have the pass phrase or that there is no pass phrase. I already know how to retrieve the original file just want to remove the hidden data from the Image and restore it's attributes.

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

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

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).

OpenSUSE :: Delete Files On Data Partition Slow Because Trash Is Located On Home Partition?

Aug 18, 2011

KDE 4.6 - opensuse 11.4.

I have a separate ext4 partition which contains all my data (music, movies, etc). When I delete files from this partition it is very slow because it copies files from my data partition to the Trash folder in my home partition. How can I avoid this? Can't the trash be configured so that it uses a trash folder in each partition instead of copying files to another partition (which is slow).
