View Full Version : [ubuntu] recovering ibook hard drive

June 13th, 2010, 05:49 PM

A friend's computer crashed and his hard drive is completely dysfunctional. The apple store said that he had lost all his data. But knowing how ubuntu is equipped with some awesome recovery tools, I was wondering, if I could not connect his hard drive through a usb external hard drive encasement, and recover his data using foremost, scalpel, testdisk or othere tools.

Has any one recovered a apple hard drive this way and wants to share?

By the way, I'm operating a ubuntu 10.4 on an AMD PC, Acer
