Partition at 4291234567 extends beyond disk bounds

Post by linus » Tue Dec 02, 2014 11:03 am

Hello

I opended an dd-image containing 4 partitions (extfs) in RStudio("open image") , but the following message is shown is the status bar:

"Partition at 4291234567 extends beyond disk bounds"

Does the reason of this message influence the recovery-chance?

Thank's!

Most likely some service data of the partition is corrupted, or the disk is a part of a compound volume: RAID, or an LVM volume.
One may speculate that it diminishes the chances for successful recovery, but nothing more can be said without close inspection of the disk or its image.

Yes you got it, it's part of a RAID1-volume :-)

If it's a part of a RAID1, or a mirror, the partition size should be equal to the disk.
