I have a NTFS drive from a Windows 2008 server machine which has a few bad sectors.
I have the drive mounted in Linux.
When I do a list (ls) in /media/hda2/Users/Jason it dosnt give me a complete listing and gives me a Input/Output error. However even though the directory /media/hda2/Users/Jason/Desktop doesn’t show up in the listing I can still cd to it and retrieve my files.
Now I need data from /media/hda2/Users/Jason/???? where ???? is a folder name I cant remember (yes I have tryed to guess).
The kernel log tells me that it gets a I/O error at sector 16564040 now I would like to take a low level look at this raw data in the area in the hope I can see something that jolts my memory about the name of the mystery directory.
I have tried Spinrite.
The next thing I am going to look into is dd_rescure which is simular to dd but better at recovery but I am unfamiliar with both of these.
Does anyone know of a utility to look at data on the disk at its lowest level or can help me on what to do with the dd_rescure utility. Or even has a completly diffrent idea on how I can get my files back.
