Hi guys I urgently need help recovering data from a failed 2TB Lacie Quadra Harddrive, I have been struggling for over a month now.....i'll try to explain the situation as best i can. The drive was practically brand new.......but i had already copied very valuable information onto it when it failed i have backups of most except for a view projects that i really really need back!!!! I am working on a MacPro running Snow Leopard 10.6.8, the drive has two partitions an HFS+ and FAT32 partition. I am only interested in recovering the HFS+ partition since it has most of the data. It unmounted suddenly the remounted again and then it was gone!!!!!! I can see it in disk utility and i have used GNU ddrescue to make a copy on another 2TB Lacie. The commands i used were as follows. ddrescue -f -n /dev/disk1 /dev/disk2 rescued.log (to get of the blocks that are still good) ddrescue -C -f -r3 /dev/rdisk1 /dev/rdisk2 rescued.log (to get the rest) at the end it seemed that roughly 10400kB was not recoverable. When ddrescue stopped it gave me a message saying that there was not enough space on the disk left even though both of these drives are identical!?!?! I also used this command to disable access from the mounting point - chflags uchg /Volumes I then scanned the healthy drive with testdisk but it gave me the following error - the harddisk seems to be too small? and stated that the partition was not recoverable. I apologize for not having any screenshots. If anyone can please help me i would greatly appreciate it!!!!!!!!!!
