Image creation: Can't create file!

#1 Postby denisq » 07 Jul 2012, 12:00

Dears,

I am trying to create an image of my damaged ntfs partition on another ntfs drive (external drive /dev/sdb1) via my openSUSE system (fully supports writing on ntfs, ...). Unfortunately, testdisk keeps telling me it can't write the image file although space is largely sufficient:

linux-2xxy:/home/quentin # df -h /dev/sdb1
Dateisystem Größe Benutzt Verf. Verw% Eingehängt auf
/dev/sdb1 932G 101G 832G 11% /media/Elements

Here is an extract of the testdisk.log (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/3224566/testdisk.log):
Partition table type (auto): Intel
Disk /dev/sdd - 160 GB / 149 GiB - FUJITSU MHV2160BT PL

Actually, I even won't be able to create an image file on my main system partition (ext3). I suspect something to be wrong with testdisk. Version: testdisk-6.13-2.1.x86_64

Any similar issue encountered?
