I have a hard drive that got damaged (had 3 NTFS partitions that are all damaged) and I want to make a clone of it to another hard drive so I can attempt a recovery without damaging data on the original drive. I have 3 OS's on my system: Vista on one HDD(not the damaged one), and XP and Ubuntu Linux on another HDD (I just installed those OS's and I think that I did something while messing with installing XP that messed it up. I have very little knowledge of Linux and don't know even how to install programs and compile on the OS so I want to avoid using a solution (unless it is a GUI) on that if possible.) I tried Norton Ghost but it didn't even see the other hard drive or its partitions. I have used a data recovery tool (1st NTFS Recovery 188.8.131.52) to look at the hard drive and it shows the 1st partition as a FAT16 one (where windows just shows it as a RAW one and Partition Magic (on XP) shows the entire hard drive as bad) and it can "see" the data on the drive as well as finding the other 2 partitions (NTFS) and the data on those. I know the start sectors of the 2nd and 3rd partitions. I want to transfer the data to another HDD so I can attempt to recover the partitions/data without messing up the original data if I screw up. The 1st thing I am going to try is to convert the 1st partition (FAT16) to NTFS to see if that fixes the problem. If you know how I can clone the HDD and/or how to recover the data for little or no $ (I would rather not spend any $ at all but if I have to I will) I would really appreciate it.
