My question is very similar to this one:
But I've given up on repairing the drive, I really just want to be able to get a few files off. It's a windows netbook, and I'm booting off ubuntu on a thumbdrive. If I try to mount the volume, I get the error in the aforementioned post:
error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: 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
I got the netbook to load windows from a win 7 thumbdrive, and was able to run chkdsk, it completed, and indicated some failed sectors, etc., but even after running that ubuntu still can't mount the volume.
Is there any way to just get a few files off this drive?
