Restoring R-Studio Image

Post by Maudrid » Sun Mar 13, 2011 6:26 am

Hi.
I have a an image made long ago with an older version of R-Studio.
I've read in the FAQ(http://www.r-tt.com/File_Recovery_FAQ.shtml#q36) that is it possible to restore the image.
I can't use the Drive Image programs since the image is in the .dsk format.
So I need to use the built-in hex editor.
I've opened the image in the hex editor, but I can't find a way to restore the image from there.
Any tips?

You may use the object copy module. Open the image and copy it to the disk. See the Object Copy section on the R-Studio online help.

Thanks for the help.
I could copy the image to a new partition, so that worked.
Though I could not get the original program to read the partition, seems the data is unrecoverable.
Thanks anyway.

I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that the data is unrecoverable so quickly. Let's check the situation together.
What couldn't read the partition, R-Studio or the operating system? Had the partition been normal before you made the image? How did you copy the partition back to the disk? As a binary object, or using smart disk/partition copying? Did you try to scan the new partition?
