Well, ahem, well...
I guess this is the rigth forum section to post.
Bad news first, I'm a Windows guy. And I have a problem. Just don't laugh at me yet.
Let's simplify my problems by saying my data HDD crashed, and I think Ubuntu could be a solution to recover my data.
I've got :
- 2 old HDD : the C:/ with Win7 on it and 4.67 Go left (over 69.something), and another one that I can detect but can't read.
- 2 brand new and shiny HDD, not formated yet.
Now I'm not really sure what to do. I'm imagining I would try to :
1 - Format one new HDD and install Ubuntu on it. (question a : how ? Do you know a simple way to do this ? I allready installed Ubuntu on a few computer but never on an unformated disk before : what format should I use, etc ?).
2 - Plug the second disk, format it in FAT32 (i think win7 still can read fat32)
3 - Save the data from the corrupted disk to the FAT32 disk via Ubuntu since the files can't be read via Windows.
4 - Format the ubuntu disk in NTFS, install windows 7 back
5 - copy the FAT32 disk on the NTFS
6 - format the FAT32 in NTFS
7 - show to my little little nephem how much seconds could fly the damaged disk when throwed by the windows. Try to aim the 2nd floor grumpy guy with the same shot.
Now you can laugh at me
Well, do you think I'm trying something really easy or difficult ? Do you know some links about this or something ? Am I trying something stupid ?
