    mounting ntfs with RW and accessing a .dd file

    Hello all,

    I have a slight issue i need some help with.

    So i have a drive that has about 500GB of data. It failed on me so i made a DD copy with the program http://www.datarescue.com/photorescue/v3/drdd.htm
    and so i have this file ending in .dd extension, do anybody know how i can mount this or something to view the content in it and extract it ?


    Thanks.

    You won't attract a lot of help when you already mark your thread as solved.

    A data recovery tool has to be directed at a device or file, which is more or less the same. Point it at your .dd file. Never tried anything like that myself, so other people will know more.

    Re: mounting ntfs with RW and accessing a .dd file

    Did you try to mount the file like any other block device?
    Code:
    sudo mount path/to/file.dd /mount/point
    where you have to replace path/to/file.dd with the actual path to the file and /mount/point with an existing mount point like /mnt or any other (empty) directory.

    The thread has been marked as unsolved.


    Did you create the image from the entire disk or just a partition?

    Please post the output of:
    Code:
    file path/to/file.dd
    and
    Code:
    sudo partx -s -v path/to/file.dd
