I have a raw image from ddrescue which is a partial image of the complete source NTFS partition, simply because the target drive is smaller then the source.
I cant mount this partial image so as to copy over the files.I get this error:
Failed to read last sector (3905654783): Invalid argument HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS), or the NTFS boot sector is corrupt (NTFS size is not valid). Failed to mount '/dev/loop0': Invalid argument The device '/dev/loop0' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?
Command that i am using:
sudo mount -t ntfs /image.img /mountpath -o loop
Is there any way by which i can recover data contained in this partial image file?
