"Disk too small" problem

#1 Post by Laski » 30 Jul 2012, 08:15

Hi and sorry for my bad english! I have used testdisk before with great results but now I have a bigger problem. It's kind of similar to this one here: http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/reco ... d-t15.html but with different parameters, reasons and partition types, and I don't know exactly how to "transpolate" the solution. Long story made short, I used testdisk to recover a partition -that's called wineprefix, that haves windows games for use them in linux- but by inexpertise selected all the others partitions as deleted. When I realised the problem, I ran testdisk again, but heres the situation:

As you can see, I can't recover my "Home" partition, wich is very important for me. Other partitions are OK, and I've already made a backup of them so I can play with what is left.
What I've tried: set the cilinders artificially to 124604 so testdisk could try to read the partitions, and then I could copy the contents to another disk and then exit without actually writing the bad geometry to disk. But...

You will have to reboot for the change to take effect.
New options :
 Dump : No
 Cylinder boundary : Yes
 Allow partial last cylinder : No
 Expert mode : No

TestDisk exited normally.
It recognized the partitions but could read none. I'm very confused now, and I would aprecciate every hint that you can give to me. I know the files are there, I won't give up until I have recovered them. With your help, I hope we'll can.

Thank you so much!

Re: "Disk too small" problem

#2 Post by Fiona » 30 Jul 2012, 11:55

Looks like your partition is somehow resized and ends after disk limit.
You can have a try to increase your size of cylinders to get access to your home partition.
But this is only intended for diagnose purposes and in case to copy your data from;
Example;
http://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/post ... imit#p3435
Please read all carefully.
Your value to get access to your partition would be 124604.
Please check each listed home partition and try to list your data.

Fiona:
First, thank you for answering. Second, unfortunatly I've already tried that (and I took the idea from your posts in the thread you just linked to), but the 'new' partitions that testdisk find can't be read and thus there's no content to copy. I copy again the testdisk log (also in the first post on this thread) but with some garbage off.
Laski wrote: What I've tried: set the cilinders artificially to 124604 so testdisk could try to read the partitions, and then I could copy the contents to another disk and then exit without actually writing the bad geometry to disk. But...

I don't know if this is legal here but my problem isn't solved and my thread went very far away from first page so...

UP!

PD: If it's illegal and I must repost the thread please notify me.

Re: "Disk too small" problem

After Deeper Search, several Home partitions are listed. For each partition, use 'p' to list its content.
This way you should be able to find which one is correct. Use the arrow keys to switch this partition from D(eleted) to P(rimary). Do the same for the other partitions you want to keep/recover. On next screen, if all your partitions are listed, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer.

Hey, I'm not a total n00b :lol:. That was, as you say, the first thing I tried. Were that worked, I woudn't have posted the log and in replace will be a very big "Thank you" :). But the situation was the same as with the 6.11 version. As you can see in this part of the log

Code: Select all

they all showed an error when I tried to list files. I think I need to do something with the start and end block data, but I don't know exactly what and I don't wanna mess things up playing around with commands that nobody told me how to use. I already did enough damage :?.

Thank you again!
