Some times I just can't understand things?
Anyway. Yes I am still trying to recover my data.
I've checked around and many people say use testdisk and photorec.
When I used testdisk 6.9 it will show me all the files on my hard drive, just as if they were all there just like they should be.
But I can't seem to fix the disk to get to the files.
So now I am trying photorec. My problems is that photorec will recover some of my files, (maybe, it's still working), but it dosen't recover all types of files. For instance my thunderbird directory with all my emails, that I can't afford to loose. photorec dosen't help me there.
Wish there was something a little better to get these files.
I've pulled the drive and have it hooked up via USB, I can see it via fdisk -l, just can't mount it.
Well will see if photorec is worth much.
Anyone with other ideas I'm game.
I live in a small country out side of the U.S. and they don't have data recovery shops.
So I'll have to struggle until my drive gives it's last spin and is sent to were all dead drives go.
