shido Posted August 1, 2008 Share Posted August 1, 2008 Ok i got a laptop and thats it! No pc's nothing, i only got a laptop please don't judge me lol... I hope you can understand exactly what happened because i messed around a lot with the partition tables so try to understand and please tell me what can be done from ubuntu. Ok i have one hdd and partitioned it like this: i had xp on c (20Gb) and all my music on d (30Gb) and 2gb raw. Then i wanted to install vista ultimate and ubuntu but keep D in tact. So i formated c and installed vista but i needed more space for ubuntu so i used partition magic and borrowed space from c so now it looked like this: C (17gb) 3gb raw then D 30 gb and 2gb raw But now i wanted more space so i took a gb from d so that joined to the 2Gb. I started up my computer and boot ubuntu and wanted to begin installation, but i only seen the end 3gb, so i went back to vista and checked out partition magic and figured that maybe i should join the raws to make one 6Gb raw, so i shifted the whole d next to the c so the middle 3gb could join the end but instead of doing that it joined the d. Now i discover that my D is not readable. So i try to undo everything but obviously cant, so i decide that the only option is to make everything one partition and format it so i can try to just recover all my music. So i delete all partitions and format it. Now i got one ntfs partition with nothing on. I boot from an external hdd running ubuntu coz i dont want to risk overwriting anything on the other hdd, so now i got two externals. One is the ubuntu and the other is my music one. Now i downloaded testdisk but i need a command that will allow me to recover my lost mp3s on my hdd that is now in another external enclosure Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
