mounting ntfs image from ddrescue
I am getting stumped on the syntax for mounting this ntfs file partition I made from a failing hard drive.
Here is what im using, that i know is good.
Disk image: 640.1 GB, 640135028736 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 77825 cylinders, total 1250263728 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xe0c5913d
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
image1 63 40965749 20482843+ 1c Hidden W95 FAT32 (LBA)
image2 * 40965750 353525885 156280068 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
image3 353527808 1250260991 448366592 f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
image5 353529856 1250260991 448365568 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
This is what i get when I try and put the filesystem option in.
sudo mount -o loop,offset=229563170816 image /mnt
Is there anyone here who can help, or who has done this before?
/media/B2402CAC402C796D/mnt$ sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop,offset=229563170816 image /mnt

/media/B2402CAC402C796D/mnt# mount -t ntfs-3g -o loop,offset=181007286272 jimbob /mnt
I tried changing the image name thinking that I might not be calling the right file.
Then I discovered that I wasn't calling the right ntfs type, so I plugged in ntfs-3 and it mounted right on up. I thought I would post this if anyone else had the same problem.
