    [xubuntu] Re: GParted says hard drive is "unallocated"

    Oh, sorry, I meant the C: disk on Ubuntu.

    Alright, after I pick that, where do I go from there?

    [xubuntu] Re: GParted says hard drive is "unallocated"

    Here's what gdisk gives me.


    How do I set the data as read-only? And does that require ubuntu to be installed, or is that still when it's running from the CD?

    Okay, I'll try this next time I boot!

    That fixed it, so now I'm actually able to boot the OS and everything is as it was before. Except one thing, now instead of just showing the C: drive, with...

    Alright, so after getting all the files out, I only have one final thing left to do, which is to repair / re-install the OS. I tried with the WIN7 ISO that I burned, and although it runs, it doesn't...

    Also, I selected "Data" and it said that there was no partition to recover or something and then sent me back to the "analyse" option.

    [xubuntu] Re: GParted says hard drive is "unallocated"

    For some reason the files from the first run weren't in the second (or at least not in the first few files of the second) so that's why I was asking.

    I really hope testdisk works.

    Also, how...

    Alright, well, I stopped it for now. The amount of files was getting to be overwhelming, so hopefully testdisk's deeper search will work.
    With that I should be able to search for a specific folder...

    Would it be possible for me to just stop photorec right now and let the files that have been recovered stay recovered and then just let testdisk run? Or is this not advised? Ideally I'd just use...

    Yes, I do. Alright, so just testdisk, or photorec? How do I decide between the two? I think the one I tried was Intel. Whichever was first.
