I accidentally wrote some
.iso data to a disk through
dd by mistake. I cancelled the command after just 2 seconds but that was enough to wipe the first EFI partition (200MB) and a bit of the second partition where OS X and some files I do really like are stored.
The ISO image I accidentally wrote with
dd was 600mb in size so the total damage would be a maximum of 400 MB since I
dd from sector 0 until I hit Ctrl + C and EFI partition was gone.
I tried running
fsck -fy on that partition but it's a no-go.
sudo fsck_hfs -fy /dev/disk2s2 ** /dev/rdisk2s2 Using cacheBlockSize=32K cacheTotalBlock=32768 cacheSize=1048576K. Executing fsck_hfs (version diskdev_cmds-557~393). ** Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume. Invalid B-tree node size
I don't know much about HFS+ but on any EXT Linux partition I could pretty much recover everything that wasn't wiped by
dd, even if overwritten. Here however I don't know where to start. There are some fancy GUI tools but they probably won't do anything else then
It can't be that the whole partition is gone because 400 MB (if the whole ISO would be written - but that wasn't the case) out of 400 GB was overwritten with data by accident. Partition table seems to be alright -
gdisk on Linux says it's OK and Disk Utility on Mac as well.
Volume was journaled (seems to be a problem for HFS+ utilities on Linux)
Any tips how to rescue my files?
