How to reconstruct a file from a JFS partition to save it on a NTFS partition?
Posted on 2014-08-18
My wife digitized an old VHS video using a pendrive plugged on a timemachine USB port from a TV LG47LE6200 and throwed the VHS tape in the trash can!
Days later, after know what ocurred, I told her: - No problem, I will plug this pendrive on my laptop to send the video file to our external hard drives.
Surprise: The laptop did not recognized the pendrive.
After some research I found that LG timemachine formats the pendrives using a obscure file system named JFS (journaling file system).
Tragedy: Then I changed the drive letter of the pendrive using "Paragon Partition Manager" and "Raise Data Recovery" trying to get the video, but only saw hundreds of files with strange names where should be the video file and the pendrive was turned unreadable by LG timemachine!
Despite this I think that the video data wasn't lost. Apparently, the video file data should be scattered through all those 251 files named 0000000100000001IDX, 0000000100000001STR, 0000000100000001THM, etc inside a folder named 00000001REC because the size of all those files appears equal to the same size of the original video file.
Then my question is:
How can I reconstruct the video file from all those files to save it on a NTFS HD?
