There is something very wrong with my 160G SSD. It shows up as a 8MB drive in fdisk:
Disk /dev/sda: 8 MB, 8388608 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1 cylinders, total 16384 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: 0x00000000 Disk /dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table
Pretty much everything on there is backed up, but I would like to create an image just to be on the save side. dd seems to only see the 8MB drive:
dd if=/dev/sda of=/home/ubuntu/data/sda.img conv=sync,noerror bs=64K count=160G 128+0 records in 128+0 records out 8388608 bytes (8,4 MB) copied, 0,20943 s, 40,1 MB/s
How can I create an image of the full 160G drive and how do I fix the drive to use it again?
PS: I have read all sorts of Wikis etc. (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery) but none of them seems to deal with the kind of issue I have here.
