I'm an Italian Windows programmer. I know almost nothing of Linux, so please be patient if the question is dumb and pardon my bad english.
I need to clone a NTFS partition from a damaged, near to die hard disk (SCSI, if this matters) to a new one (SATA).
I've installed the last version of Hiren's Boot CD utilities on a USB stick, and tried with GParted, which told me that it can't copy/paste the partition because it's damaged and "flagged" by windows to run CHKDSK. I followed the Warning advice and tried to repair it using
CHKDSK /f (it took 9 hours and exited with an error after "phase 3") and a Linux program I can't recall right now, without success.
I tried to clone using Clonezilla, and it failed as well, for the same reasons. In the HBCD there's dd_rescue, but it failed again because it can't find "ntfs.something".
In the end, all that I want is to clone that partition as it is, with his errors and everything. I can repair it on the new drive.
So, what should I do?
