Using a BlacX docking station with Windows 8, I am unable to see my hard drive.

Using the BlacX docking station with Ubuntu, I think I am seeing it, but I am not able to access any files (first it said unmounted, then it showed mounted to rofs???).

 

Can someone please help me?

Thanks!

Check this out. Linux partitions aren't normally readable from Windows, as a security measure.

Hope that it helps.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.

I have successfully used Knoppix 6.7 and Knoppix 7.2 live CDs, to recover files from a failing hard drive that XP wouldn't recognise. I booted up the pc from the live CD, and simply copied and pasted the files from the failing hard drive to another hard drive.
