I'm trying to get some data off a laptop. The disk is buried inside
somewhere so to avoid dismantling the laptop I am trying to mount it
using a FreeBSD livefs cd (7.0RC1).
Note all the commands and output below are typed up by hand but I think
they are accurate.
Fixit# ls -l /dev/ad0s2
crw-r----- 1 root operator 0, 94 Jan 31 13:39 /dev/ad0s2
Fixit# mount_ntfs -o ro /dev/ad0s2 /mnt
mount_ntfs: /dev/ad0s2: No such file or director
So I thought I would try using ntfs-3g which I would prefer anyway as it
is probably safer.
Fixit# pkg_add -r fusefs-ntfs
Fetching ftp://[pathto]fusefs-ntfs.tbs...pkg_add: warning error writing
to tar: Broken pipe Done.
pkg_add: unable to open table of contents of file '+CONTENTS' - not a
Lastly dmesg shows:
GEOM_LABEL: Label for provider ad0s2 is ntfs/HDD.
So how can I mount the hard disk?
Or can anyone suggest an alternative way to get the data other than
dismantling the laptop? I've tried ping which is a linux based disk
cloning livecd but it can't see network or a usb hard drive.
As a secondary question, could ntfs-3g be included in the livefs CD? It
seems like quite a useful utility to have.
