hard drive format

  • Like an idiot, I forgot to backup my settings, and now my boot drive has failed... I cannot remember what format the drives from my OMV server are in... What's the best linux and/or BSD distro to use in an attempt to read my drives so I can recover my data?


  • Well I built an actual OS drive and have booted to it... Ubuntu-MATE.... It would appear as though I have been able to retrieve everything, but the drive is still reporting that it has 1.1TB of data still on it and I have no visible folders?? I have even emptied the trash. I'm really confused.

    I have used the ls -la command and there are no hidden folders that I can see... very strange

    Any suggestions on something to check before I wipe this drive?
