Data Recover Problem
Hi All.. I've very new to Linus and got hold of a copy of Knoppix Live CD in order to extract data from a terminal crash of by XP computer.
Everything works fine in that I can boot up Knoppix and can see the files I want to remove. (Huge relief!.. a good lesson in the need to back up regularly!) However, frustratingly actually extracting the data has proved more challenging:
1. I tried to burn it onto CD but keep getting error messages (I only have one CD RW drive so have to swap disks - is this why?)
2. I have tried to set up a local network to extract the files with by my laptop. Both laptop and PC are connected to the internet so they must both be going through the modem. However, I can't find a way for them to see each other.
3. I have got hold of a cross-over cable to connect two pcs. I have instructions how to do it for XP. But can you establish a direction connection between XP and Knoppix?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
If your hard drive is big enough you could probably use qtparted and repartition ur hard drive opening up a 1gb partion. your risk lossing some data but then you can use the tohd=/dev/hda1 cheat code (replacing hda1 with the newly created partition) to copy the cd file to the hard drive freeing up ur cd burner. as far as i know you can only do this on a FAT or FAT32 machine other than that im not sure.
Hope that Helps
