Cool Recovery on the way...

Hey!

Two options:
One:
Mount the old drive if it is bolted into the box with the new one (two hard drives in the same machine) and use the file browser to copy-n-paste
Two:
A cleaner method, one I've used more than once. Use tty Linux. Burn the ISO, bolt the old drive into the/a machine, boot from the CD, log in (instructions are on the screen) and mount the hard drive.
Enter

Quote:
fdisk -l
to see what the drive is called

Use

Quote:
ls /mnt
to see where you can mount, and mount the drive

Quote:
mount /the/device-found-by-fdisk /mnt/c:
and CD to the folder, have a look-see if everything is still there...

Give the box a USB stick, mount the same as the drive (fdisk - mount)
copy from one mount point to the other

Good luck!

Thor
