Hello,


I had a harddrive fail the other day that had Ubuntu installed on it. I bought a new harddrive and installed the latest version of Ubuntu on it and now I am wondering about data recovery.

I am going to try to set the old failed drive as a slave and then see if Ubuntu will recognize it when it boots up. Is there any risk to doing this? What about any special software to try to get the data off?

Thanks for any help
