MFT / NTLDR / NTFS (external drive) damaged after ntfsresize (Linux)
All Linux-based NTFS repair utilities are unfortunately rather
limited in their scope and ability. Testdisk is the best you're
going to get on the cross-platform side of things, and while it
is awesome for recovering partitions and bootsectors it's really
not what you're going to need if you damaged the NTFS filesystem
itself. The best testdisk will do in that case is attempt to
restore the MFT mirror.
ntfsfix are severely neutered
and have had parts of their recovery features/methods turned off
from years ago due to being dangerous because of being
incorrectly implemented or not fully understood when
If you have access to a Windows setup CD for Vista and above, use
the command line feature from the "Startup Repair" to try
chkntfs /f on the partition in question (if it can
be seen). Failing that, it may be time to pull out your favorite
file recovery tool for the retrieval of files from formatted
Free software: Testdisk's counterpart, photorec, does just that. I personally have had
good experiences with Recuva from Piriform, but that's a
Windows-only program so you'll need your hard disk connected to
another Windows machine.
There are hard-core commercial NTFS file undelete applications,
but honestly, they're almost never worth the hassle - if your
partition is damaged enough to need them, you'll get your files
back, but they probably will be incomplete/corrupted and won't
actually open. Your best bet would be to use those tools to
retrieve certain files by name.
Be forewarned: software that recovers files from deleted
partitions can take up to several days to run a deep scan!

program creates a TeX file from a Metafont or MetaPost
program. It takes appropriate care of typographic details
like page layout and the use of indentation, italics,
boldface, etc., as illustrated in the book Computer
Modern Typefaces. Special conventions in Metafont and
MetaPost comments allow you to control things that would not
otherwise come out right; section 1 of the MFT source
program in the Metafontware report explains these
program uses an optional change file (which works just as
the change files to tangle(1) and weave(1) do)
and one or several style files (which are prepended to
everything). If no style file is specified, the style file
plain.mft for Metafont (or mplain.mft for
MetaPost) is automatically used.
mf_file_name, optional change_file_name, and
style_file_name files are searched for using the
MFINPUTS (for Metafont) or MPINPUTS (for MetaPost) and
MFTINPUTS environment variables if you have set them, or
else the corresponding system defaults.
The output TeX
file name is formed by using .tex in place of the
extension of mf_file_name.
Apply the change file
change_file_name to mf_file_name.
Assume mf_file_name is a
MetaPost source file (this is the default if
mf_file_name has the extension .mp).
Use the style file
style_file_name insted of plain.mft (or
mplain.mft); this option can be given more than
TeX macros used by mft output.
