R-Linux on Windows

Post by jjackson » Tue Feb 17, 2015 2:53 pm

We have a drive from an older version of Slackware. The box was used as a file server.

The drive was nearly full and in preparation to archive data to make room we cut and paste a large directory to a different location. This did not work out that well, the server drive went to 100% full and things went downhill from there. The off - site backups turned out had issues of their own and did not back up everything correctly.

We have 75% of the data moved to an external hard drive.

We would like to get the other 25% if possible.

Can put the linux ext3 drive into an external enclosure, attach it to a windows PC, and run R-Linux on the windows machine to recover the files?

Yes, if the file system on the drive is ext. Actually, that's what R-Linux is for. Although, I'd rather connect the drive directly to a SATA port, or an IDE one, if that's possible.
