I am using Ubuntu from USB Flash Drive and its showing me all data and it makes me happy but when I try to copy its say

there was an error copying the file into /media/ubuntu/Local Disk

Moreover, every data which I copied to other drive showing 0 bytes instead of notepad files which are showing actual size and working good.

Check the post what he said:
cgsecurity.org ? View topic - TestDisk appears Partition : Read error

Edit: Can I use Ubuntu instead of PepperMint6 ?
From whichever machine and configuration you posted the screenshot, the two partitions appear. So it is not the loss of partition Table.

Is it MBR - We have to check on it.

Live Linux - Keep it in the backburner for now..

Two laptops, two different OS, two different connect mechanism - that is not going to lead us anywhere.

Please stick to one configuration as follows and don't keep changing till the problem is resolved.

Laptop - whichever laptop has Windows 7 on it. ( Which one is it -G 510 or T 600?) Windows 10 precipitated the problem as per your recent disclosure. So keep away from it for now.

1TB WD drive inside an enclosure.

Boot into Windows 7, plug in your 1TB external drive to the USB port and post the screenshot of Windows Disk Management. Upload to SevenForum Servers.

I have posted the screenshot from Lenovo T400 Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate x64.

Yes, its MBR.

Its Lenovo T400 not T600.

OK, good.

Keep the same setup in all what you do - Windows 7, your 1TB WD Blue inside the enclosure and plugged into the USB port.

You said using Live Ubuntu you were able to see all your data but unable to copy. Unfortunately I am not familiar with Ubuntu and so I shall go my own way -the Lucid Puppy way,

Go to this post Is there any way of saving a completely unrecognisable hard drive? and create the Lucid Puppy pen drive.( Use an empty pendrive since any and all data in it will be lost when you create the Lucid Puppy pendrive)

Boot with Lucid puppy and see whether you can see any folders and files to recover.

[Go to the topic Recovering files from the non-bootable Internal Drive: in this thread Lucid Puppy way to recover files from a non-bootable computer on how-to. In your case it will be your external drive.You will be copying from your faulty external to another external. Please omit whatever is stated above this topic which only states how I made my drive RAW to try Lucid Puppy. You already have a RAW drive..]

That thread also details how to copy files/folders seen by Lucid Puppy and you should have no difficulty in doing that.

Ok, if you are already using Peppermint ( Tutorial by Golden) and can copy all data, there is no need to redo it with Lucid Puppy. Go ahead with Peppermint. The end is what matters and not the means. There are many routes to reach the same destination.

Yes you are right but Peppermint is very lazy on copying files.

Nope. You may put any such query on the Software subforum where there will be others in the know and can advise you better.
