    Anyone knows a good disaster recovery tool????


    Hi people, I have a computer that was working very well, but lately when I was working on a important project, there was a power fluctuation for a couple of times (I thought that was normal) but after the last power fluctuation my computer refused to boot up. There seems to be a failure of some kindů..but I need to get the projects back that are still in that disk.

    I would be thankful if you could suggest any good tools to get the files and documents back.

    Find another system and burn a recovery disk. Knoppix is a good choice as is Ubuntu and possibly Centos. Once you boot from a CD you will then be able to mount your file systems, but first run fsck on each to be sure they are OK.

    At what point does the boot process stop? What distro are you running? What kind of system is it? Is it a laptop or desktop?

    Jim.
