I have a dump of a hard disk. A hard disk recovery company made it for me. I don't know what software they used to make the dump, all I have is a file
My only idea to get started was using
$ file disk.img 12693A.img: x86 boot sector; GRand Unified Bootloader, stage1 version 0x3, stage2 address 0x2000, stage2 segment 0x200; partition 1: ID=0xc, starthead 1, startsector 63, 312576642 sectors, code offset 0x48
I guess, if this is a dump of a hard disk, it contains, in the following order a) boot sector b) partition table c) partitions. So I guess the
file tool just reads the first part of (any) file, and in this case the first part is a boot sector, though the file contains so much more.
How do I:
1) See the partition table. Not the hex codes, but something human readable about which partitions are on there.
2) How do I see the content of each of the partitions? I guess this is called 'mounting' even though it is not a physical disk and even though I am not interested in changing any files, just seeing the content.
