Mike’s Linux Desktop Experiences

March 16, 2008

a bad day.

So I backed everything up, rebuilt the OS and restored what I could.

What I could?

Yep.

For some reason my tar command got the first 40GB of my data, but stopped thereafter.  I don’t care so much about the recoverable stuff, and I got most of the unrecoverable stuff, but a complete, organized set of photos from Greece, my entire MP3 collection and a few other things are missing.

The photos tick me off the most.  I only have a copy of half of them on a drive that I originally unloaded a lot of them from and a few others on an SD card.  Burning this to disk was on the to-do-list 😦

I’m experimenting with PhotoRec to scour my drive for jpg and mov files.  Yeah, a new OS was loaded on there, but we’ll see what I can get.   This thing is interesting from a forensic perspective.  Awesome tool.
