In hindsight, I should *not* have followed Microsoft instructions.
I should have made a 'dd' of the hard drive from Centos.
And, I should have booted the Windows machine to Knoppix to make
the backup of the C:\data hierarchy from there. f

Now I'm just trying to figure out how to rebuild the Master 
File Table of the USB NTFS disk from Centos 6.

Any suggestions on how to just rebuild the MFT?
