    Ntfs


    Need some help..
    A friend of mine windows computer crashed...I am trying to recover his files..pics of his kids and so forth the problem I have though is this.

    Windows won't recgonize the drive at all...

    Linux sees the drive, but I can't access it.

    I have tried numerous NTFS drivers including purchasing Paragon NTFS. When I use this and I type the command this is the error message I get.
    Code:
     [root@maleshafske /]# mount -t ufsd /dev/sdd /mnt/test_ntfs
    mount: unknown filesystem type 'ufsd'
    anyone have any ideas. I am positive that i can recover the files if I can just get it to mount

    Hi and Welcome !

    Which Linux distro do you have?
    You must specify Partition Number ( /dev/sddx ) too.
    Execute fdisk -l command to check partition number and execute this
    Code:
    mount -t ntfs /dev/<partition> /mnt/test_ntfs -o defaults,umask=0
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I am using CENTOS 5.1 i386 kernel version 2.6.18-53.1.6.el5
    I used your command but stll recieve the same error:
    Code:
    [root@maleshafske /]# mount -t ntfs /dev/sdd2 /mnt/test_ntfs -o defaults,umask=0 
    mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'
    One other note is that I can see it in my Gnome enviroment but when I go to click on it I get an error message of: CANNOT MOUNT VOLUME
    The volume 'HPNOTEBOOK' uses the ntfs file system which is not supported by your system.

    Logical Volume Management shows it unmounted and having 2 partion sdd1 and sdd2 respectfully...Data is located on sdd2

    Appreciate it.
