    Data Recovery


    I am running a computer with two seperate hard drives one with windows 2000 on it and the other with Mandriva Linux. I am able to access both drives from both operating systems. I would like to use data recovery software to look for old files that were deleted awhile ago on my windows 2000 drive but you always have to run that software from a seperate hard drive. Does anyone know a good recovery software that would run in linux whether it be with WINE or not and be able to recover files from a windows drive,

    Thanks,

    Matthew

    You could always just get a raw dump of your windows partition with
    Code:
    dd
    and then mess with that at your leisure.
    Or you could try it from WINE, although I believe there are several native Linux utilities which perform a similar task.
