Partition Question Please

19 posts in this topic

Yes your correct, all seems understandable until you end up wiping everything out.

I had to put my thinking hat on here, I have a hard drive that doesn't run windows so I looked around the TestDisk site and noticed a LIVE CD option then noticed Knoppix on the list.

I had Knoppix 7.0 Live CD and it mentioned the TestDisk was already installed. I followed the instructions, entered Admin mode and entered fdisk and selected the fdisk -l

Below are the results from the LX Terminal and of course I can run any other tests you require.

Please note the Astrix beside the /dev/sda2

root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix# fdisk -l

omitting empty partition (6)

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes

255 heads, 63 secotors/track, 19457 cylinders, total 312581808 sectors

Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

Disk identifier: 0xd65316el

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System

/dev/sda1 2048 312561663 156279808 f W95 Ext'd (LBA)

/dev/sda2 * 159750423 239625539 39937558 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

/dev/sda3 312561664 312580095 9216 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

/dev/sda5 4096 159750143 79873024 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

Just noticed all my TABS have diapered except when I hit Edit.

Yep, but that is the output of running fdisk.

I asked you the log of TESTDISK, instead.

Maybe I'm not sure now to do this then, sorry......

I downloaded the latest TestDisk 6.14 and unZipped.

I have a Hard Drive that boots up to a black screen with a cursor at top right.
