    there is no recovery tool as such but there a few packages which allow backup and restore option. B]Keep[/B], its kde's backup/restore tool. PartImage.. its for creating image of whole system....
    Linux always create backup files... look for filename~ in the same folder....

    post the contents of /etc/fstab file and output of "fdisk -l" command . its small "L" . you must be root to execute this command.
