TestDisk-data recovery software!

Post by JohnT » 08/21/09, 9:05 am

During a recent Linux install, somehow I borked the "Partition Table"....you know the drill....Black screen "Invalid Partition Table". I could still boot into XP and Linux with unconventional boot processes...and found this little gem invaluable. Runs on anything...!!!!

TestDisk is a powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.
