I try to mount a hard drive in Ubuntu and get the following error:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0). The file system wasn't safely closed on Windows. Fixing. ntfs_attr_pread_i: ntfs_pread failed: Input/output error Failed to read NTFS $Bitmap: Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details. Failed to sync device /dev/sdb3: Input/output error Failed to close volume /dev/sdb3: Input/output error
A friend of mine mounted the drive on their MacBook and they were able to read the data on it and copy it off without any problems.
My question is... how can I do data recovery like that in Ubuntu? Or are Macs the OS of choice for data recovery professionals?
