Ubuntu and Win7 file recovery programs
My HDD died on my laptop. It was running Windows 7 Home. Bought a replacement drive, but lost a lot of important files that are still on the dead drive (yes I know I should have been backing up).
I have used GetDataBack, Spinrite 6, and R-Studio in the past to recover files for friends who've had drives die. I might end up going that route and using one of these, but just wondering what are some really good Linux based file recovery programs that are out there.
I currently have Ubuntu 12.10 installed on the replacement drive I'm running in the laptop.
Starting to get used to Ubuntu and not really wanting to wipe it and reinstall Win to use GDB or R-Studio.
Spinrite which runs off its own bootable disk estimates over 100 days to complete is, so that one is out of the question.
Any suggestions of good Linux friendly recovery programs would be appreciated.
