I am trying to recover data from a HDD.
For this purpose I am using Knoppix 8.1 on a DVD.
sudo fdisk -l gives me the following results for the specified HDD:
Gerät Boot Anfang Ende Sektoren Größe Kn Typ /dev/sda1 63 2047 1985 992,5K 42 SFS /dev/sda2 * 2048 206847 204800 100M 42 SFS /dev/sda3 206848 642795519 642588672 306,4G 42 SFS /dev/sda4 642795520 1953523119 1310727600 625G 42 SFS
/dev/sda3 which is the OS partition automatically. It cannot mount
/dev/sda4 however, which is where all the data is that I want to rescue. Mounting it manually won't work. It says:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on .....
ddrescue I created images of sda3 and sda4 which wasn't really a problem. Mounting the image for sda4 doesn't work here either. I haven't found much about mounting a SFS partition. Is there any way do something about that? Next steps I am trying is flashing Knoppix on USB so I can install packages which might be useful for my usecase.
