Re: Convert raw to NTFS
I am sure you now are doing a low level scan, something like what photorec does. I used photorec on a much smaller drive and it took overnight to complete, so it may take that long.
We have seen one or two users who did not partition drives and just started storing data to them. It works more as an old floppy drive, but without partitions none of the normal system tools work. Did you have partition?
Intel would normally be correct if partitioned with MBR(msdos). I have a couple of gpt partitioned drives and use the second entry for UEFI/gpt even though I do not have UEFI for those drives.
Very large drives over 2TB would normally use gpt. Ubuntu installs to empty drives over 1TB with gpt partitions. Ubuntu will boot from either gpt or MBR with either BIOS or UEFI.
But Windows only uses MBR with BIOS mode unless booting with UEFI, then only works with gpt partitioning regardless of drive size.
