I have (2) 2TB hard drives.
HD1 - I hosed the MBR, drive won't mount, can't see data, but it must be there because I didn't do anything much to it except with testdisk
HD2 - was empty, made a dd image backup of HD1 to this drive. Although dd ran out of space it said? Took roughly 16 hrs to complete this task. The first drive was less than 1.5 TB's in actual data though so hopefully it captured it all?
The data on the first drive (and hopefully on the dd image on the second drive) is my entire life's work and is quite irreplaceable. I really need these files (mostly raw photo images, TIFs, JPG's, home movies, my entire album collection in MP3 format, my entire DVD collection in MP4 format, etc)
How do I recover my data from the dd image on the second drive? It's just a humongous dd image file sitting there not a clue what to do with it.
