how to mount old harddrive for data retrieval?
Hi there everyone,
Every year or so, I upgrade my OS(Fedora) and I'm installing 9 right now. The way I do it is I remove the old drive, install a replacement drive then install the OS. This way, in the event of a catastrophe, I simply swap drives and have my old OS back.
What I would like to do if possible is this: Once the new OS is up and running, I would like to plug the old drive back in and retrieve all of the necessary files off of it(email, work, docs, etc.).
What's the easiest method of doing this? How would I go about mounting a second drive that's not part of the file system?
