This is just a quick question regarding my RAW external HDD (i posted a question on James littens site but I think he's too busy to answer)
I'm in the middle of performing a partition recovery as per instructions on his website, using parted magic.
However, I need to do a "deeper search" and it's taking forever, I have around 45600 cylinders (2% complete after 2 hours). So I'm wondering, is there a way I can copy the files from the HDD onto another hard drive through a Linux or Ubuntu boot, or would this be useless when I put the New HDD into the computer (I.e., the same error which caused the HDD to become raw would "carry over")?
I think I might post another topic with more questions and more details of my situation, but for now I just want to ask this one because if the deep search takes continues at this rate I'll be without computer access for days!
Thanks in advance and will be happy to provide more info if needed for this.
