so i went through all this trouble to try to recover data from a killed HDD.

i used dd_recover and dd_rhelp. seemed to work like a charm. but i think the filesystem was hosed, so it's prolly hosed on the image too. :?

the first partition, boot, mounted just fine using the loopback device.
great lot of good that's gonna do me... :roll:

but the one with the data i want won't mount:
mount -t ext3 hdb2.image /mnt/loop -o loop,ro

and i get the wrong fs type, bad superblock, too many mounted, blah blah blah errror

can i run fsck on an image? that didn't work out so well when i tried it on the drive.

ideas? TIA

got it!

e2fsck -yv hdb2.image

had to run it "manually" it was all sorts of hosed. but i got it mounted.

journal was gone, bunch of bad blocks.

but now i got what appears to be most of my data back

woot! :D

now if only i could just emerge freetype. i can't get to the mirror though??
