Try cloning/imaging with HDDSuperClone for about 5 minutes or so, stop it and attach the log here.


Thank you for answering. I was planning to do that after trying to hook it up via TTL. But since you say HDDSuperClone can work with it I'll do this first. Is it okay if I do it with HDDSuperClone free version? Does the free version expire after a set time?

Yes, use the free version, there are no limitations for use. Don't worry about the paid version unless I tell you it could actually help in your case.

I am having some setbacks with the installation. I chose to use a lubuntu 19.04 persistent live usb and to install HddSuperClone on it (this could already be a bad choice).

I am following your guide.Your .deb installer seems not to work - it returns: the package system could not be initialized, your configuration may be broken.

I then tried with .tar.gz. I used

Code:
sudo gunzip /home/hddsuperclone.2.1.13.x64.tar.gz


The .gz extention disappears. I am left with hddsuperclone.2.1.13.x64.tar. Then you write to change directory (cd hddsuperclone-x.x-x.x.-xxx) but if I write

Code:
cd hddsuperclone.2.1.13.x64


the response is "No such file or directory". Perhaps it is implied I have to create it..

I'm new to Linux...

I am not sure about the DEB installer, but for the .tar.gz you are missing this command after gunzip:
Code:
tar xf hddsuperclone-x.x-x.x.-xxx-free.tar

I somehow managed to install it, but on launching I got

Code:
lubuntu@lubuntu:~/hddsuperclone.2.1.13.x64$ sudo ./hddsuperclone
./hddsuperclone: error while loading shared libraries: libusb-0.1.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Then I tried

Code:
lubuntu@lubuntu:~/hddsuperclone.2.1.13.x64$ sudo hddsuperclone-install-depends-deb.sh
sudo: hddsuperclone-install-depends-deb.sh: command not found
lubuntu@lubuntu:~/hddsuperclone.2.1.13.x64$


Anything else I can try?

try lubuntu@lubuntu:~/hddsuperclone.2.1.13.x64$ sudo ./hddsuperclone-install-depends-deb.sh

the ./ means "the current directory". *nix doesn't (or doesn't always, I don't know) just automatically add the current folder to the path to look for things.

Funny story - my first year of University I walked to the other side of the campus because I couldn't run the program I compiled from C code.. a.out as I recall.. just for lecturer to show me to use ./a.out.. I must have recompiled 10 times!

or making the .sh file executable:

from the dir the .sh file is in, do this:

Code:
chmod +x hddsuperclone-install-depends-deb.sh

Try manually installing libusb:

sudo apt-get install libusb-0.1 -y

Whoops, may need to update that in my documentation :shock:
Edit: Just realized my documentation is correct. It says to run that after a successful install, meaning the .sh file is located in an executable directory, not the current directory. In any case the manual libusb install should fix the issue.

Just an FYI, this error is something with your system, not the .deb installer. I can install it on a 19.04 live CD without issue. Your issue seems to be with package manager itself, and I cannot help with that. You may want to search your issue for a solution, if you intend to keep using that persistent USB for this and other things, as it could cause future headaches.

Yes, I suspected along the line it was a problem with who know what in my installation.

Here is how I solved it:

Code:

Up and running now!!
I'll test the software on a test drive first and then shoot the 5 min log on the real one

It looks grim...

This might help assessing the status of the drive.

I based the idea that hddsuperclone could read it from the post where you showed that the drive listed with lsblk as having partitions, which would mean it identified and read at least sector 0. If this is still true (the screenshot would indicate that is likely still true), then the drive is locking up / going offline after that, which would likely indicate a firmware issue for some sort of busy / non-responding issue. That means it is time to get into the terminal connection and commands, which I don't do. Others here would need to help you with that.

Well, at least all hope is not lost. Since it does appear to actually at least read sector 0 and get the partition table, it means it is still alive (or at least not totally dead). It probably has bad sectors, maybe a bad head, but there is still more that can be done DIY using the TTL adapter. If the firmware issues can be fixed, you should hopefully be able to get some data off it. Just don't send the wrong commands to it, or you could kill it for good.

Thank you for your reassurance. It seems I do not have other choice that to dive in - i am terrified :lol:
I haven't yet understood if and when is safe to power up or down the drive though. I know SATA supports hot plugging and it is clear I do have to power up the drive at some point after setting up the terminal, but when am I supposed to power it down? Powering it down while it is still processing some information is the last thing I want to happen and my worst fear at the moment. I've read that some commands might take time to show responses on terminal and that until then you shouldn't power down the drive.

I have taken my chances and plugged my test drive trough TTL.
Naturally I couldn't get the terminal to work. Not surprising..

I followed the instructions on how to connect the TTL adapter to the drive Spildit kindly gave me in his first post. I used Putty with the following settings:

Baud - 38400
Data Bits - 8
Parity - None
Stop Bits - 1
Flow Control - None

I have two TTL adapters:

Based on CP2102 (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3250301 ... 4c4dLsQxbf).

Both of them have two handy LEDs (one for transmission, one for reception) that show you what's happening. I anyway shorted RX and TX on both and tried them directly on terminal. They work!
I made sure both gave 3.3V (the first one can be manually switched to 5V).
I isolated with tape and slightly flatten the connectors to make sure they would adhere to the HDD pins without interference.

I read somewhere Spildit was recommending CP2104 for better compatibility, which seems close to my second adapter, at least name-wise.

So, I open the terminal with the aforementioned settings and then power up the drive. The terminal stays blank. In a following post Spildit was saying to check what log the HDD would be displaying on the terminal.

I had planned to input a few commands listed here: https://www.data-medics.com/forum/seaga ... 3242a6b8a1. Like Ctrl + a or Ctrl + l which seem to be harmless. Needless to say nothing is showed on terminal when I input those commands. I also tried to give Ctrl + z first and then any other command, but nothing happen. I noticed that when I type ctrl no light is shown on the TX corresponding LED unlike say the z key if I have to input Ctrl + z. Is that normal?

I am still not sure about when to power down the HDD. I assume anytime if nothing is showed on terminal and the heads are parked. I do not know whether I have to wait before or after inputting anything and if yes how long..

Perhaps some of you guys know already what I am doing wrong and if yes hope you can point me in the right direction.

Thank you :mrgreen:

Since there are no other replies yet, I will say a couple of things to try.

First and foremost, make sure those connectors on the hard drive are not shorting together at all. I did some testing with connectors just like that, and I had to be real careful to make sure the wires were positioned just right to keep them separated.

Second, try reversing the TX and RX on one end. My first attempt to connect to a Seagate drive failed because it was backwards. It shouldn't hurt if they are accidentally backwards, at least it didn't hurt anything in my case.

Thanks for replying maximus. I am positive connectors cannot touch one another, they are completely wrapped with thin transparent tape. As for inverting RX and TX I haven't tried it yet. Will try it tomorrow..

Something actually happened as soon as I gave power

With CP2102 (some very quick head movements)

Code:
▒▒xx▒x▒xx▒x▒▒▒▒x▒▒▒▒x▒▒▒▒▒x▒xx▒x▒▒▒x▒xxxx▒▒▒▒xx▒▒▒xx▒▒x▒xx▒▒▒
▒▒xxx▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒xx▒▒▒x▒xx▒▒▒▒x▒▒▒▒▒▒▒x▒x▒x▒▒xxx▒x▒▒▒x▒▒▒x▒x▒▒x▒▒▒x▒xx
xx▒xxx▒▒▒xx▒x▒xx▒x▒▒x▒x▒x▒xxx▒▒▒xx▒x▒xx▒x▒▒▒▒▒x▒x▒▒x▒▒x▒x▒xx▒


With CH340 (head movements negligible)

Code:
▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒.@xr▒¤


Futile my attempts to get anything else out with Ctrl + a, l or z

Back when I was playing around with the terminal connection, I seem to remember two things that caused garbage data like that. One was having the wrong baud rate, and the other was a ground issue.
