Thanks for sharing this.

Couple of questions:
Mega's showing me 2 files with same filename and size. After downloading both, they are identical.
Can you confirm if you uploaded twice the same file?

Also, I opened the file with both 7zip and WinRar, and the file inside is a txt. Not that it matters, it can be renamed; just wondering why you chose to make it a txt instead of a common hdd image extension.

yes they're the same files (i'll quickly remove it), it's just happened cause i had some troubles wile i uploading it.
For the .txt it's "normal", cause with the program i've used to copy my drive it only allowed me the .txt so I could only do it with this type.

Thanks. Quick question: what software did you use to create the HDD image?

The HDD appears to have been formatted by Windows perhaps, due to which the data at the first few sectors is overwritten.
However it seems to be partially recoverable, as the table that references file and directories is intact and only the array that references that table is overwritten along with first superblock header and the main header.

Code:
The HDD contains:
1) superblock name erased - Biohazard 4 (Resident Evil 4)
2) DVDEmuDiagData CD 656MB
3) Monster Hunter DVD 4492MB
4) Crimson Tears DVD 4492MB
5) EMPTY (partially erased) DVD 4492MB - maybe Prince of Persia: Jikan no Suna PAPX-90517, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time SLES-51918
6) GRADIUS_V
7) EMPTY (erased) - completely erased or was never used

It is not known how many files from the EMPTY areas can be recovered.

Most of this information was determined by AKuHAK.

Anything is possible, my tool was used by at least 2 companies probably more.

Here is a simple program to extract SN Systems DTL-T14000 DVD Emulator HDD:

It can only extract files that have not been deleted.
Running it with no arguments prints short usage information.
It takes only one parameter - the input HDD image file name.
Once started, it creates a text file, in which all (non-erased) files from the image are listed (together with some more data) and then asks the user if the program should continue by extracting the files found.

If the initial structures describing the superblocks are missing, it attempts to search for each superblock individually. However this is unreliable and it may even crash the program if there is much damage within a superblock, so using the program on such images is not recommended.

For files that have been deleted or whole deleted supeblocks, it is better to use some tool to search for the particular filetypes, because the links between the structures referencing the files and the files' data are lost in such cases.

The archive also includes a file incompletely describing the HDD structures, should anybody need it, in order to create a more complete program for managing the HDD data for example.

The game was ported from GameCube. Nothing really interesting can be found in any prototype PS2 build.

The only re4 build I knew about was the game cube build that had a debug menu but it was only disc one.
