UFS archive disk unreadable

#1 Post by TheOptimist » 27 Jun 2015, 00:52

Dear filesystem guru,

I have discovered an offsite backup of work that I'd forgotten about, from four years ago. It would be great if I can access the data on it because it contains a lot of valuable materials that I thought were lost forever.

The 1TB disk came out of a Freenas 7.XX server which runs on FreeBSD and is formatted UFS.

When I put it into my current Freenas server it complains with the following error:


I put the disk into a Win 7 machine and Disk Manager reports it as a 298.09 Primary Partition (not 1TB).

I ran testdisk, please see the attached log.

Please advise if you suspect a possibility of recovery.

Thanks in advance

Nigel Haslam

Hi,

I realized that I hadn't posted the message from Freenas in the above post so I put the disk back into my server and lo and behold, it allowed the disk to be mounted.

Thanks for your consideration

Nigel
