Re: [opensuse] Restore filesystem without losing data?
Le 28/01/2014 21:15, Stephen Berman a écrit :
An external hard disk of mine became corrupted, and in an effort to save
the data on it I dd'd it to another hard disk. Both disks were
formatted in Yast (openSUSE 13.1) with a single ext4 partition. But
after using dd, now the filesystem is gone from the second disk,

what did you use as "dd"? if it's dd ... of=/dev/sdXX, and the two disks are of similar size, your new disk is gone forever...

if it is dd ... of=/mount_point/name_of_a_file

then your new disk should be ok.

if the new disk is much bigger than the old, you may have some data saved, try the utilities other proposed
