Inaccessable USB and lost of data - file bigger than the device
The 'dd' command was used as follows 'dd if=/dev/sda6 of=/dev/sdb1 conv=noerror'
Now there is a problem with accessing the usb. It is found by the system and replying:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
after visiting syslog I found this:
ReiserFS: sdb1: found reiserfs format "3.6" with standard journal
ReiserFS: sdb1: warning: Filesystem on sdb1 cannot be mounted because it is bigger than the device
ReiserFS: sdb1: warning: You may need to run fsck or increase size of your LVM partition
ReiserFS: sdb1: warning: Or may be you forgot to reboot after fdisk when it told you to
What could I do to find and retrieve the original data from the USB, if possible.
