Right now i am stuck in recovering the data part. I just rebooted through a live usb of 13.04 (My original OS was 12.04LTS). But can't seem to be able to /dev/sda1 where all my data was. It's showing in gparted as well as sudo fdisk -l.
Sudo fdisk -l output:
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders, total 976773168 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00052866 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 2048 909690879 454844416 83 Linux /dev/sda2 909692926 976766975 33537025 5 Extended /dev/sda5 909692928 976766975 33537024 82 Linux swap / Solaris
But when i try to mount it using "sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/" it throws me an error "mount: special device /dev/sda1 does not exist", and when i try this "sudo mount /dev/sda /mnt/" it throws me an error mount: unknown filesystem type 'isw_raid_member'
Any clue how to solve this thing. I really need to get my data back from that drive.
