I currently have two main drives in my machine, one an SSD with Linux Mint installed, the other a 4TB HDD with Windows 10.
I also have 32GB of Intel Optane memory installed in my M.2 slot, which is setup and linked with the 4TB HDD.

I'm currently having issues booting into Windows 10 so I wanted to recover some files, but I can't mount the drive.

The only drives that appear in GParted are the SSD and the HDD.

I get a warning on the main Windows data partition when I open the information section:

Code: Select all

ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup_warn: magic: 0x00000000  size: 1024   usa_ofs: 0  usa_count: 0: Invalid argument
Record 17 has no FILE magic (0x0)
Inode is corrupt (0): Input/output error
Failed to open $MFT/$BITMAP: Input/output error
Failed to load $MFT: Input/output error
Failed to mount '/dev/sdb4': Input/output error
NTFS is inconsistent. Run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot it TWICE!
The usage of the /f parameter is very IMPORTANT! No modification was
made to NTFS by this software.

Unable to read the contents of this filesystem!
Because of this some operations may be unavailable.
The cause might be a missing software package.
The following list of software packages is required for ntfs filesystem support:  ntfs-3g / ntfsprogs.
Not sure what my next steps are. Any ideas? Thanks

If you can't access that data from a Windwoes machine then your data is lost unless you have a reliable backup. The only hope of recovering anything from NTFS RAID using Linux is to use mdadm and set up fakeRAID but the problem for you is that there are no drivers for Intel Optane in linux. Intel won't provide them.

Ah right, I had a feeling that might end up being the case. Thanks for letting me know! I guess I'll focus on trying to fix the Windows drive to recover the data.

I'm sorry I didn't have better news. Good luck.

Alright so, I took a risk and went into the BIOS. There was an option that allowed me to separate the Optane from the HDD while retaining my data. After it finished, it seems to have completely scrambled the partitions. My 4TB drive is essentially now partitioned to only have around 4gb used out of the 3-4TB it's supposed to be consuming. I've used R-Studio to see if the files are still there and they are, so recovery should be somewhat possible. Testdisk doesn't seem to be able to fix the partition table? Only finds the incorrect one.

Hoping this is still relevant to this thread, but is there any way I can fix this partition table now?
