How to read a partition fron USB-disk with UBUNTU?
Posted on 2009-04-04
Hi out there!
I had a QNAP TS209 Pro server with two 1TB HD in RAID1 configuration.
Then the server itself, or the TCP/IP communication card get broken, and I could not use the HD.
And that is a disaster, because now I can't reach my data at all, even then I now have a new server of exctly the same type, because I have been told I can not put the two disks back and all will be safe again.
Is there any risk to try to put back the disks into the server, and can I secure my data by that?
I have also another computer with UBUNTU Desktop (which I am not familiar with) where I can see this information about one of the disks from the server that I have connected via USB to the UBUNTU computer:
(I have tryed to translate from swedish to english)
Disk /dev/sdc: 1000,2 GB, 1000204886016 byte
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders
Units = cylinders by 16065 · 512 = 8225280 byte
Unit Start Begin End Block Id System
/dev/sdc1 * 1 66 530113+ 83 Linux
/dev/sdc2 67 132 530145 82 Linux exchange / Solaris
/dev/sdc3 133 121590 975611385 83 Linux
/dev/sdc4 121591 121600 80325 83 Linux
The partition /dev/sdc3 i probably what I want to rescue my data from, it is about 900 MB and used about 41%
I would really appreciate if someone can tell me quite exactly how I must do to copy my data from that partition (USB-disk) to the computers HD.
I can't install the HD into this UBUNTU computer because the hardware is a server (PowerEdge 2600) with SCSI-disks.
