Recovery of Truecrypt Partition

#1 Post by Noah » 16 Oct 2012, 00:03

Like most of the people who find themselves on this wonderful forum, I accidently did something I was not supposed to do. While installing Ubuntu, I assumed the drive it attempted to install itself on was the one I intended it to install on. The drive in question (/dev/sdb) was a 750 GB truecrypt drive in NTFS format.

I've tried just about everything I could up to this point, searching the forums and other sites high and low to figure it out on my own. My attempts were futile (although I did learn quite a bit in the process).


I could try and explain more, but I think posting the log should do more justice. This log is the appended version.

It would mean so much to me if I could recover the files on this drive; years of my research and inventions are stored on it. Either way, I'd like to thank the people of these forums in advance for the diligent work I've seen in so many previous posts. An excellent community for an excellent program.

Re: Recovery of Truecrypt Partition

#3 Post by Noah » 18 Oct 2012, 19:05

I'm going insane at this point (mostly because I continue to do the same thing expecting different results). This is what I see when I conduct a deeper search. I apologize in advance for the terrible cropping. At this point, it doesn't allow me to another but continue, at which point its like being back at the beginning. I've tried using photorec, doesn't give me a single original file. Please help!
