HFS+ and NTFS on same disk, "harddisk seems too small"

#1 Post by waenc » 18 Mar 2013, 18:13

Hi,

I am attempting to recover the partitions from an external hard drive that I was experiencing problems with. The disk originally came packaged as a WD MyBook 2TB. I was experiencing I/O errors and random disconnections, so I moved the disk to a new USB enclosure. I then cloned the disk to a second 2TB external drive using

Code: Select all

./ddrescue -n /dev/old_disk /dev/new_disk rescued.log
The original disk was formatted to contain NTFS and HFS+ filesystems, with the basic layout shown in the image below (HFS+ would be the larger partition) Image

I have attempted to run testdisk, from a Windows machine, on the copied disk several times, with little success. After selecting a media and choosing to "Proceed," I am given "Hint: EFI GPT partition table has been detected." Originally, I selected "Mac" partition table type and performed a quick search because I need to recover the HFS+ partition. In general, it was finding DOS_FAT_32 partitions, but, in the end, it gave me errors such as "the harddisk seems too small!" I tried a deeper search. During the deeper search (10+ days in), the computer was forced to restart and all progress was lost, and I don't think I have the logs for that.

The next time I started, I chose selected "EFI GPT" partition map because that was given in the hint. After the quick search, I received the following result Image

After the deeper search, I was given similar results ImageImage

In general, the .log tends to contain a lot of "lseek err Invalid argument" lines. I am wondering if I am experiencing problems because I did not write zeros (or anything else) to error locations when I ran ddrescue.

At this point, I cannot continue with trial-and-error attempts that take 20+ days to complete a quick and deeper search. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
-Weston

Log below. It may contain several sessions because I may have chosen to append the log. (note that I had to remove many lines similar to "file_pread(5,1,buffer,3907031077(243201/111/20)) lseek err Invalid argument" due to character limits. I simply filled in "..." where these were removed.)

Re: HFS+ and NTFS on same disk, "harddisk seems too small"

I tried an "Intel" partition table type with no success, though it went much faster.

I thought this part looked hopeful because it looks correct:

Re: HFS+ and NTFS on same disk, "harddisk seems too small"

#3 Post by waenc » 19 Mar 2013, 17:39

reading around, i see that the WD MyBook could be hardware encrypted. should i put it back in the original enclosure? i was unable to clone the disk with dd_rescue from that enclosure because it would disconnect within minutes.

Re: HFS+ and NTFS on same disk, "harddisk seems too small"

#4 Post by waenc » 20 Mar 2013, 01:00

I returned the original drive to the original WD enclosure. When I open disk utility, I get this message:
Image
I chose not to initialize, and you can see that it shows as 1826.99 GB unallocated.

When I ran TestDisk, I chose to analyze as "EFI GPT" as suggested by the hint. I get "Bad GPT partition, invalid signature. Trying alternate GPT," which gives the really nice looking partition table:

1 P EFI System 40 409639 409600 [EFI System Partition]
No HFS or HFS+ structure
2 P Mac HFS 409640 3613771815 3613362176 [Untitled]
2 P Mac HFS 409640 3613771815 3613362176 [Untitled]
No FAT, NTFS, ext2, JFS, Reiser, cramfs or XFS marker
3 P MS Data 3614035968 3906961407 292925440 [WINDOWS]
3 P MS Data 3614035968 3906961407 292925440 [WINDOWS]

The search got stuck on cylinder 20, and I had to force TestDisk to close through task manager.

When I run Western Digital Lifeguard's quick test, I get error message "Quick Test on drive 2 did not complete! Status code = 07 (Failed read test element), Failure Checkpoint = 97 (Unknown Test) SMART self-test did not complete on drive 2!"

I could really use a look at this, if anyone can spare it. Thanks.

*NOTE: This last post is from the original drive in the original enclosure. In previous posts, I was using a clone of the original that was made while the original was in an alternate enclosure.

I am still having problems.

I tried different USB cables on the original hard drive in the original WB My Book enclosure. This did not change anything. I bought a new circuit board, with an identical part number, off of eBay and tried that as well. This still has not helped.

Testdisk continues to hang on cylinder 20. A sample log of this is given below.

It goes on with this "file_pread(....." for many many lines before it was forcibly quit.

When I tried to repair the MBR overnight, it generated a log file that is +29 GB in size and cannot be opened by any word processing programs. When I returned it only showed me the standard "Boot sector Status: Bad - Backup boot sector Status: Bad" screen that precedes the repair.

What I don't understand is why I did not encounter as many problems when the hard drive was in an alternate enclosure. I have tried changing all parts besides the drive itself.

I think my next effort will be to attempt to copy the original hard drive (from its original enclosure) to a new one. When I did this before, I had the hard drive in an alternate enclosure that did not have WD decryption.

If anyone has any other advice, I would be grateful. Thanks.

Try running ddrescue as root.
If running from the recommended Knoppix CD/DVD you can try first to update
sudo apt-get update

to sync with the relevant servers,
then install gnu ddrescue if it did not come with your disk (you can check that online)
with apt-get install or following the advise in this page:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/Damaged_Hard_Disk

If you need to clean the disk for the clone first, you could use the free MiniTool
Partition Wizard CD from:
http://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html

Best of luck

I just repeated this as Administrator using Cygwin 1.7 (downloaded a few days ago) in Windows XP, and it behaved the same way. Administrator would be the same thing as root, correct?

I also tried with OSX console ddrescue 1.16. It got to the same location (167051 kb) before it started encountering errors. It did not jump quickly to the 2000GB error size as it did on Cygwin. Instead, it slowed down and actually resolved a few small blocks after the first error. I had to stop it because the computer was not attached to power, but I may try to keep going with the OSX console later.

I wrote 1s or 0s to the disk I am copying to with OSX disk utility. I'm assuming this would have cleaned it well before starting.

Yes you are correct. To get to the Administrator account in XP, press F8 as soon as the machine approaches the end of POST (before Windows starts to boot). Start Windows in safe mode. Then you will see the Administrator account. If you don't you can get to it through the Control Panel, User Accounts.
Sorry I thought your picture of the shell was from Linux. In any case you do not need to install Cygwin to run TestDisk under Windows. I think it does that on its own. Mind you, you were running ddrescue.
If you take a closer look at the instructions about running gnu ddrescue under Knoppix, no split is indicated as one of the switches, the first time you run it, if I remember correctly. The second time is runned with switches to indicate retry once over the bad sectors, or something like that. You are probably right to have a go running it from the Mac's OS.

Have a look a the las part of this post. Might be of help:

This Fedora version comes with all the tools needed:
