Rescued By Linux..Again
Posted in Tech
Afternoon watch, 6 bells (3:04 pm)

I was able to save some files from a laptop that was going south today by running OpenSuSE Live 11.1 and mounting the hard drive then copying the files to a USB drive. Windows repair had already failed fixing the problem, the system just would not boot.

The next, final resort would have been removing the hard drive and connecting it to another computer, but thankfully SuSE saved me and I was able to copy everything off without a hitch.
