TestDisk - "This partition ends after the disk limits."

#1 Post by MarkHagan » 06 Apr 2015, 10:28

Hello, I have a corrupt 2TB disk and have run TestDisk Analyse and Deeper Search but I am not sure how to proceed.

Some background also.

My Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2 2TB disk reports as "corrupted boot"

I am running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS in dual boot with my Windows 8 preinstalled Dell Inspiron 660 with approx 0.5TB given to each OS.

I have the disk to be recovered connected by SATA USB Bridge. (shows as /dev/sdb).

I tried attaching the log file but it told me .log and .txt aren't allowed!

Can you try using TestDisk 7.0-WIP ?

Hi,

Thanks for responding. I have run it with 7.0-WIP as suggested and there are slightly different results but still no real sign that it might have found anything.

Oh and also, I changed the partition types to L or P from D just to see if I could list files with the 'p' command but all gave the response 'No file system found'.

The one that was P didn't have the option to be L.

Hello again.

I managed to backup the disk to a new 2TB WD Red drive using ddrescue but this time have them both installed internally with direct SATA cables rather than the USB bridge.

Testdisk now sees more information and that the disk is RAID. I gives the message 'Invalid RAID superblock' but I can list the files in the MS Data partition but I don't know if this is all my files.

I am attaching the log. Can you please tell me what my next step should be? Many thanks.

Code: Select all

You should be able to mount the files from the 2 raid partitions and copy the files.
Bypassing the RAID, as root, try

Code: Select all

mkdir /mnt/sdb2 /mnt/sdb3
mount -o ro /dev/sdb2 /mnt/sdb2
mount -o ro /dev/sdb3 /mnt/sdb3
ls /mnt/sdb2 /mnt/sdb3
Once it's done, reinstall your NAS system. I fyo are lucky, you will not have to restore your data.

Thanks Christophe!

Coincidentally I tried to mount the device but it complained about the unknown filesystem

Code: Select all

mark@mark-Inspiron-660:/$ sudo mount /dev/sdb3 /mnt/sdb-backup/
mount: unknown filesystem type 'linux_raid_member'
I searched the error and doing the following created two RAID arrays

sudo mdadm --assemble --scan

And then I was able to access the disk with the data on it as a logical volume (which I also had to research).

Code: Select all

FYI the /dev/sdc1 is the original bad disk device not the new image which is /dev/sdb.

It appears the disks weren't in as bad shape as I'd thought and the ddrescue seems to have made a good image!

Thank you for all your time and help.

Mark
