I have a hard which has a damaged partition table.
There's a linux partition on the disk and I know where the partition begins
I can do
dd if=/dev/hdb of=/tmp/disk skip=<start> count=<length>
The problem is that the partition is around 2.4 gigs, and dd stops after 2
gigs, as linux doesn't support files bigger than that.
I can mount the incomplete output file in loop back mode, but obviously not
all the files are there.
Is there any way to access all the files?
