[ale] HDD Locked Up - Wife business pics in it!



Have at least as much storage available as the dead drive and run
photorec NOW. It will try and try and try to pull what it can off the
drive. You don't need to care about what failed, only how fast can you
pull off the pictures :-)

(This is the perfect situation to have had a mirror drive with 2
different makes/models of drives)

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you
gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his
own tail. It won't fatten the dog.
