?? ?? ??? ????? ??? ???? ???Ever had a hard drive get all corrupted by money and power? Or just overuse�

I found a good tutorial on how to recover your data from a corrupted hard drive, but it needed some twking so I moved some stuff around. This should be more efficient.

First things first, you need a new hard drive. It can be external if you want. But you HAVE to be able to mount it as a directory in DSL (damn small linux)

Now you need to borrow someone elses computer (cause yours is screwed right?).

Download DSL (damn small linux)

Just google �Damn Small Linux Download�, you�ll find it.
Got it? Good, now boot it.

after booting you will see the GUI of the DSL, run TERMINAL
and follow this command

*Note: this command will make you a super user in DSL

#sudo su

*Note: this command will mount you HDD on DSL

#mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1

*Note: this command will check if your data is still on the HDD

# /mnt/hda1
#ls -al

Found any data? If not stop here and cry.

If yes move on.
Since you alrdy have you new hard drive connected to your PC just run this command series.

#mount /dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc1
# /mnt/hdc1
#mkdir backup
#cp -R /mnt/hda1/*.* /mnt/hdc1/backup
