bad hard drive


Recommended Posts

running mdv 2008.1


40gb backup drive (hdb) has gone bad.


Tried the freezer trick, no luck. hdb (with partitions hdb1 and hdb3) is now out of the PC and in another machine running pclos 2007 and trying to recover using ddrescue. Have set up a larger partition (hda7) specifically to contain files on the unreadeable hdb1 partition. Once ddrescue finishes, hda7 won't mount and reads similar errors as hdb1 :


either bad permissions or bad superblock, fs, etc.




Anyone experienced with ddrescue?

As mentioned, hdb used for backup went bad and I had to comment out hdb partitions in fstab in order to boot mdv2008.1 (on hda) . Now having trouble mounting flashdrives so poked into fstab and guess what? hdb1 and hdb5 partitions are listed in fstab again!


What's going on? hdb is out and in a different PC!!


Any ideas? (not about the flashdrive, but about the hdb entry. UUID's are the same as the original hdb partitions).
