[ILUG-BOM] Data recovery on a crashed drive with Linux FS
Sun Jan 21 00:16:50 IST 2007
Sometime on Jan 20, Dinesh Joshi assembled some asciibets to say:
> My Samsung SP1213C ( 120GB ) SATA disk has crashed. Its making horrible
> clicking sounds. The disk is not reading much. Though GRUB does come up
> and the kernel does start booting up but it finally panics after not
> being able to find initrd ( Yes, I use Fedora Core 2 :P ). I had some
> important family pictures and stuff in there.
