Re: A new use for Linux



There are also linux distros like Helix which are designed to
facilitate file recovery.  They give you a lot of tools to do
different mount options and basically allow you to search files on the
disk, copy whatever files you want to another part of the filesystem,
then save them whereever including external usb devices.

Not that new.  I have used a Ubintu disc and a USB drive to recover
Windows files in the past.  Not that difficult.  Works great.  (There are
also Linux distros for breaking passwords on Windows boxes.)
