I had a failing 3 TB hard drive that I was using to backup games on Xbox One. I just got a new 3 TB hard drive to replace it. I tried to copy over the files through the Xbox One but it failed probably because the old drive lost connection with the console or vice versa. I decided to try using backtrack to access the two drives and copy the files and then found out that backtrack changed over to Kali a long time ago XD. I swear I'm not old ;) Anyway, I just downloaded the latest stable version of Kali and I'm booting it live from a thumb drive.
Now, the drives did not pop up on the desktop so I went to see about mounting them manually.
sudo /sbin/fdisk -l shows both drives are recognised so I ran
mkdir and then ran
mount but I got the error:
wrong FS type, bad option, bad superblock, missing codepage or helper program, or other error
Today I stumbled across this article:
It basically says that the Xbox One formatted the partition table on these drives so that they wouldn't be able to be used on a PC. It says that the info that is supposed to be at the beginning of the drive is all 0's. The article does however go into some detail that may be useful in figuring out a work-around. Any ideas?
PS: This is my very first post and I am currently struggling with this dilemma. Please stop down-voting my post and suggest how I can make it better instead. I'm trying.
