I had setup 3 disks in a LVM array with each disk holding some data. A few weeks back one of the disks "disappeared" from the LVM array and BIOS. After rebooting, the disk reappeared but does not display any of the data that was in it. The drive held a collection of ebooks that I can't easily rebuild so I'm keen to see if I can recover the data on it.
I'm trying to use TestDisk but have had little success so far. When I launch TestDisk to analyze the drive, I get the following message:
Once I finish the Quick Search, I get an error about the Hard disk size being too small:
I can then see that there are two partitions:
Trying to list the files however, just throws an error message:
From GParted, It seems like the CHS settings detected by TestDisk are correct so the Disk too small error is a little baffling:
I'm using TestDisk 6.13 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Any suggestions on how I should proceed from here?
