    Diaster Recovery

    Hi does any one know of any ways or utilities that will allow me to recover data from an NTFS drive on a lap top. What happened was an upgrade to XP pro went bad and now I can not boot. It is complaining about ntldr missing and believe me I've tried it all from NTFS boot disks to Linux on a stick. I need that data really bad and any advice would be appreciated. Thanx

    Use knoppix (which is a bootable linux distro) and you can read the ntfs drive, as well as burn that data to cdrom (if you have a cd-rw) or use samba to xfer the files over the network. ooppss.. I guess if its a laptop, you only have one drive, so you'll have to xfer the files over the network.

    Knoppix is protesting right now... but www.knoppix-std.org is not.

    NetKnow: Winternals software has saved my butt many a time. It boots an OS from the CD and allows you to have a network connection to copy your files somewhere else.

    This is a link to their "emergency" version that you can download and try for free.
