Actually I'm curious as to how you managed to salvage your data. I've had to deal with minor HD failures but I'm pretty sure your experience in the matter will come in very handy someday!

(And yay for recovery, too, 'cos losing important files is Sad(tm) too.)

Good old fashioned hard work! A magnetic needle, a magnetometer, and some paper to translate the datas!

Back when I was in engineering school, my next door neighbour was a student in the same year as me; his legend had it that he could intercept TCP packets just by sniffing the CAT-5 cable.
I've never seen fit to refute that legend. Those exist for a reason. :)

Well, the process was, in truth, pretty specific to the precise context of my woes -- where some bits could still be extracted from the disk at the beginning, and the targetted filesystem was ReiserFS -- but hopefully there will still be helpful bits in there for others. :)
