[SLUG] hd head crash = what, exactly?
shame i missed your last meeting with tridge!
i was using smbclient to back up a windows system over my local network to a
local ext2 partition... when the copy crashed. on reboot fsck choked and
from then on whenever i apply power to the drive it goes click, click,
click, click for ever until power is disconnected. neither parted, fdisk,
etc or the manufacturer's tools can get a hold of the disk.
what did i do to deserve this :) is there anything i can do to save a
couple of my tax admin folders, and maybe my MH folders?
help me obi-slug you're my only hope :)
cpaul aka howdi, out.
