I have an external drive formatted in
ext3 (basically) that previously was connected to a Linksys NLSU2 NAS device. Now the NSLU2 is broken and I have struggled to restore the files on the disk because its filenames are using a Windows codepage (
cp850). I can access the disk through a tool called "ext2fsd" in Windows where I have the option of choosing the proper codepage. However, my Windows computer is rather old and the ext2fsd tool is crashing from time to time.
When i try to mount the disk in Ubuntu I get broken filenames because the codepage is non-standard, I presume. Is it possible to:
- Mount the drive in Ubuntu as ext3 with the codepage used on the disk?
- Convert the codepage to a standard one suitable for ext3?
