The other night I was trying to partion my hard disk for dual booting with my existing WinXP. I accidently managed to wipe out all my partitions. Luckily my data partition was backed-up on my Fedora-8 Samba server. After searching the internet for "linux data recovery", I came across an article (http://port25.technet.com/archive/2007/ ... linux.aspx
). In the article there is a line of code:
bash# dd conv=noerror if=/dev/sda1 of=/root/recovery.img
After executing this command, it started running and creating a image file on my server until the file reached 2GB in size and it stopped. Can anyone point me in the right direction? There is some data that I need to recover that wasn't in my last backup.
The instructions suggested Microsoft Vista or better, so I installed Linux.
