R-Linux finds my files, creates then image, then nothing.

Hey people.
My query is as the title really. I have a 500gb hdd that's died on me. (Running Ubuntu Server [ext 2]) I have a backup of the data, but spent a week or so renaming, sorting and filing. Then it died before I could back it up :S

I've used testdisc and it found my files, but none had the names/file structure. 500gb of sorting? No thanks!!!!

Then I found this tool.
It found my drive. It made an image. I explored it in file mode view, and selected the folders I wanted.

I click recover files.

Nothing happened.

I left it for a day.

Nothing had happened.

- Is this a common problem? Or does anyone have any suggestions?

Cheers,
Rich

I did the same, R-Linux recovered all marked folders and their respective files.

How long did you leave it running for?
