Trying to recover files from old hard drive
my old laptop died...thanks to spilled lemonade. Hard drive was ok, so I bought a rocketfish external shell. Linux recognizes the external drive but I can't open it. The old hard drive had a linux/windows xp partition and this messages shows up when I try to open the only files I can see in the file:
Archive: /media/SYSTEM RESERVED/Boot/zh-TW/bootmgr.exe.mui
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
note: /media/SYSTEM RESERVED/Boot/zh-TW/bootmgr.exe.mui may be a plain executable, not an archive
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/SYSTEM RESERVED/Boot/zh-TW/bootmgr.exe.mui or
/media/SYSTEM RESERVED/Boot/zh-TW/bootmgr.exe.mui.zip, and cannot find /media/SYSTEM RESERVED/Boot/zh-TW/bootmgr.exe.mui.ZIP, period.
Any idea how to open? I'd like to just use it like a big flash drive.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
Post the output of the command "sudo fdisk -l" here (that's the letter 'el', not the number 1).Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
