I have a laptop with SSD which has Windows 10 installed. I booted the laptop from USB flash drive into Ubuntu 14.04.3 and tried to find out the file system on partition 4. According to
gdisk it has partition code 0x0700, which means that it is 0x07(0x0700/0x0100) in MBR codes which means HPFS/NTFS/exFAT. This is in accord with
gdisk manual which says that
codes for all varieties of FAT and NTFS partition correspond to a single GPT code(entered as 0x0700 in sgfdisk). According to
Parted seems to gather its information by looking the data from partition.
fdisk -s /dev/sda4, which uses the same principle as
parted, finds that the file-system is
PE32 executable. Finally I tried to get any additional information with
ntfsinfo, but looks like that
ntfsinfo wants the file-system to be mounted:
dumpe2fs can be used on unmounted file-systems. One could assume that this is a NTFS partition, but for some reason the partition is not mounted:
In short, how to determine Windows file-system on GPT disk partition? Or is there a way to check from Linux if this partition is encrypted?
