  1. Copy storage partition raw data


    There are many small-computer devices today (Raspberry Pi and clones, ARM-based TV Boxes, e.t.c) that need to boot using SD card. To create the bootable SD card it is needed to write image file to the SD card. Actual version of the Windows have no tools to solve this task. This is impossible without installing the side software like dd clone or Win32DiskImager. My question is: why not to extend the "copy" command functionality for writing and reading raw data directly to and from storages and partitions?


    As sample like this:


    copy /B boot.img \\?\Device\Harddisk5

    :)

  2. Recover data from a RAW partition

    I think you should mention that which file system you used. As per of my experience I suggest you Remo Recover utility to recover data from old hard drive. I think it will be helpful for you.

    Raw Partitions

    Hi Everyone!

    A few days ago, I accidentally told the Ubuntu Installer to wipe my Windows 10 partition. I quit the installer, but my partition is now RAW.

    What is a RAW Partition?

    In Windows, partitions with an unknown filesystem (like my Ubuntu partition) are marked as RAW. In this case, Windows was unable to recognize the filesystem type. Lets say your Windows partition filesystem gets corrupted badly. Windows would mark
    it as RAW. So, in short, a RAW partition is
    not a filesystem, but an error of the partition.

    What happens if you have a RAW partition?

    It depends. If your primary partition is RAW, Windows will not boot. Period. If an external storage device or other partition is RAW, Windows will ask you to format it. You will not be able to get any data off of this partition.

    Is this error fixable?

    It seems like it also depends. If your partition's filesystem got really messed up, then no. This will happen:

    > The type of this file system is RAW.

    > CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives.

    However, I have seen reports of people fixing a RAW partition. This is what happened:

    > The type of this file system is NTFS

    > The first NTFS boot sector is unreadable or corrupt.

    A little suprising, but this is good. It means that your partition is fixable. The first sector is what caused the RAW error.
    p.s. I used chkdsk to get these errors

    How do you fix this error.

    First off, you will probably need a Windows Installer device.

    If you can get to a command line, skip this part.

    Boot from the installer.

    Set your keyboard, mouse, etc. Click next.

    Click Repair your Computer (bottom-left corner)

    Click Advanced Options (or similar)

    Now, first, try and use Startup Repair. If Startup Repair works, great! If Startup Repair fails, keep reading.

    Open a command line.

    Run the following commands in order:

    > diskpart

    > list volume

    This will show you the RAW partition, and what letter it is.

    > exit

    > chkdsk /r /f D:

    Replace D: with the letter from Diskpart.

    You should get some errors at the beginning (first sector corrupt). Don't worry, it is actually fixing the second sector!

    If that doesn't work, then you are in trouble, and should just reinstall Windows. Sorry

    I hope this tutorial was useful. And also, please leave comments if you have another method that worked for you. Thank you!

  4. Copy storage partition raw data

    Convert and extend RAW Partition after Windows 10 Upgrade

    Thanks a lot. My opinion is that in raw partition there was the Recovery Partition of W8.1, as it was never been usable as storage space. So I suppose that new W10 installation didn't use this partition. What do you suggest to do? Explore anyway this raw
    partition or format it anyway? I'm sure that it doesn't contain my data because I couldn't save anything on it as its nature of recovery space...Thanks again
